I need to start taking pics of my grilling and smoking exploits. Did Malcom Reed’s bbq chicken and waffles along with jalapeño poppers over the weekend on a new set of grillgrates. Paired with Shannon Brewery’s Irish Red. Delicious!

Thanks, Brent. I don't do FB but am getting a kick out of the RT youtube channel with Chef Greg, John and Jody. I seasoned the 590 with chicken thighs on Sunday (amazing) and am plotting my next cook!

lager did you have skin on your thighs and did it come out very crispy. I did thighs for my first cook but the skins were very rubbery. The chicken was perfectly smoked and great taste is what counts :cheers:
So far I have done about 4 racks of ribs, st Louis and baby backs, whole brisket and roast beef. All done to perfection.

I did have the skin on but I had the temp @ 400F recommended by Chef Greg. They were very crispy and great tasting. I saw other postings where people experienced the rubbery skin at lower temps. I think over at amazingribs Meathead recommends 325 for poultry on the smoker.

Reverse seared steak tonight. Kosher salt and drying in fridge for now. I’m going to try and reverse sear the strip for my daughter also. Or maybe not. Not sure yet.F2A97DF0-1E81-41AB-BC11-58F48E1F9F8F.jpeg

Did a reverse sear with filets on Weber kettle with Slow n Sear last night. Outstanding! Going to try a comparison with gas grill and newly acquired GrillGrates soon.

Roast beef done in the rec tec at 225 degrees for about 3 hrs. Pulled it off when the dead center was 129 degrees. Wrapped and put in cooler to rest for about 2-4 hrs. The results was the perfect rare roast beef. Hope this helps. :cheers:
