Ok the ones that got more heat were way better. How do I get a more crispy wing while smoking them on an egg?
A couple of things I do...One, let the wings dry uncovered in the fridge for at least an hour to dry the skin thoroughly. That really helps get a crispy skin. Also, evenly coat with a little baking powder. I don't always do it, but it works really well. My usual method is Grill them indirect heat at 375f for 30 minutes, flip, 20 minutes, toss in sauce, 10 more minutes.

Anyone get rid of their gas grill and switch to a pellet grill exclusively? I am looking at getting a Memphis pellet grill, but I dont want to have a gas grill and a pellet grill taking up all the space on my deck.

First time with a pork shoulder so a little 3 pounder test smoke. Homemade rub heavy on the pepper....guajillo, ancho, chiles de arbol, etc. I like mixing different woods so used apple, mesquite and pecan. Electric smoker for about 10 hrs. Pulled it at 190, wrapped and put it in a cooler for about 90 mins. Can't wait to do another but larger.

Depends on what you want to do. BBQ, smoke, bake, ????
I would also look at Rec Tec pellet grills.
My neighbor bought a Treager and 2 months later sold it and bought the RT-700 aka The Bull, and I am totally impressed.
I have a smoker, a gas grill and a gas griddle and I use all of them for different food preparations. :cheers:

Smoked Chickens -

07E1B86C-3B0B-4DC0-ABE7-7B405CA4843D.jpeg

Seasoned with Kinder’s seasoning and smoked with hardwood lump charcoal and hickory Wood chunks. I love to smoke chicken and I find splitting the whole chicken works best.

Very moist, juicy and full of smokey flavor.

Smoked pork loin with orange/honey glaze -

4C1A46C6-E0F5-46AD-B911-51C811B9A3BB.jpeg

I tied up and wet-marinated the loin in a mixture of pineapple juice, soy sauce and mirin. Then I smoked it on my BGE using a little bit of apple wood. After it had smoke for about 20min I then glazed it with a mixture of orange marmalade & honey. Very flavorful.

I decided to whip up a few Italian stuffed mushrooms and served it with brown rice and broccoli.

Happy Saturday:cheers:
when I had i solar cover and it was just me, I would peel back the corner like yours and hang out with an arm stretched down both walls. Sometimes the arms traded the bottle, sometimes they each had a beer.

The hot coping provided a nice back warming.

Ok lots of drinking going on here. What about cooking.
I made corn pico this morning for fish tacos and flank steak tacos tonight. We brought home a pile of fish yesterday again and my freezer is jammed already with fish. Like I said somewhere else. If covid did anything to me is that my fishing game was never better. Lol
