    Yes it was a chuck roast. I personally thought it came out okay. However my wife and neighbors mowed it down in short order. Used pecan wood for the smoke and even though eventually wrapped the roast in foil the smoke ring was pretty visable and had just enough smoke flavor that when eating it the merlot also came thru. Will do this again one day.

    Yep had a great weekend. The first of our local sweet corn is now coming in and I have been roasting it in the husks the last 3 days. Not sure how badly this is going to hit my Glucose numbers LOL but it's about the only "sin" I allow myself

    Busy Week

    Been in a ceramic kick here lately. Did two Boston Butts and Baked Beans in the Primo XL for my wife for a party she was attending (read voluntold). Today I got a "Chuckie" chugging along in one of the BGEs. Its almost at 165° internal. Will take it out then and hit it with the Texas crutch with a bit of merlot and onion soup added. Then back into the BGE and will be shooting for a finished internal temp of 205°. Hope you all are having a good weekend.
  7. Just topped off the cylinder...now time to clean the grates.

    Looking for cover recommendations

    Thanks I'm gonna have a look. Just made a nice trade last night with a friend I have from another forum (TVWBB). He picked up a pretty nice Q320 but really wanted a Q2XX for it's portability. I have been looking for a reasonable Q3xx so I casually said "hey let's trade" sure enough a nice drive to Madison WI and I have a nice Q320 and he has a nice Q220 red head

    Looking for cover recommendations

    Hood, Here is a link to the place I picked up the cover for the XL BGE in the table. This is not the exact cover my table had the BGE in the center of table. http://www.jjgeorgestore.com/xl-big-green-egg-table-cover-54-wide-x-34-deep-for-jjgeorge-xl-egg-table/

    Looking for cover recommendations

    Maybe I'll have a look at that. I don't need it to go very long just to cover the grill head down to about 24" or so is all. Just to keep water from collecting in the grease pan. Because as many grills of this type it uses a wide flat shallow drawer under the fire box for grease collection

    Looking for cover recommendations

    Hood, You might take a look at some patio furniture covers to save some money. With that said you might look at something that covers an XL Big Green Egg and Table. Went through this goat rope myself a couple of years ago. I think it was a cover from JJ George that finally fit this oddball size table I built.
  12. So as some regulars know I have this Wolf grill. It's a giant 6 burner. Where I am having an issue is this. I would like to get a cover for it. However, while the width of the grill is not hard to accommodate (42" with side shelf down) the depth is hard to accommodate (32"). Every cover I look at is only for 24" deep. So WTF? Doesn't ANYONE make a cover for a truly large grill? I am sure Wolf is not the only brand that makes a grill with large dimensions like this.

    Social media just killed community forums everywhere. And now participation in social media appears to be rapidly declining so I really have no idea where all of this is headed. I wonder how much the younger <40 age group is into grilling and BBQing as well...

    What's Cooking

    Talk about bad weather our temps have been colder than we saw in Dec, Jan and Feb. For the first 3 weeks of April we got snow at least twice a week plus ice accumulation. We've simply extended January. Funny when temps got to 40 it felt so nice and warm. So yeah I've been cooking on my garage "herd". Last fall I picked up a Genesis Silver B in great shape for $20! It's a NG but I threw in some different orifices and have it in the garage on LP alongside my Q220. These along with my Lodge 2 burner cast iron grill for my stove top have been pressed into service. We've had a very hard and loooong winter here. So the deck grills have remained under cover until just this week! I currently have RCPlanebuyer designing some new heavy stainless cook grates for my Wolf grill, and thanks to issues with my Summit this year it's going to go away. Though I will confiscate those nice stainless steel grates from it for my Genesis and I will sell it with the cast iron grates off the Silver B. I also just rehabbed a sweet little Genesis Silver A and gifted it to a good friend of mine from my small group bible study from church. He was having some minor financial issues and asked could he buy a grill from me. So I surprised him and his wife with that gift plus a full tank of LP. They love it Sure wish we saw more participation here Keep grillin!

    Sounds awesome hood. Only have done one rack of ribs this year so far. Weather here is on the upswing after next day and half of rain. Ribs will make another appearance shortly.

    Did a wonderful slab of spares on my Summit yesterday. Low and slow with some nice oak smoke on them. Beautiful smoke ring, tender sweet and juicy no sauce required

    Where All The Flowers (posters) Gone?

    I believe today is going to turn things around. At least here in the city. and it's, "Where HAVE all the posters gone?" but you knew that.

    Heck, I forgot I was even a member here.
  24. We had some snow, and it did get rather cold for about 3 weeks, but besides that pretty mild down here in Ga...

    Where All The Flowers (posters) Gone?

    Oh yeah you guys are getting nailed pretty bad out east. Funny Alaska is almost "tropical" and here it's supposed to be spring. Go figure. I think it was 2 weeks ago I was sitting on pins and needles. We had something like 8 or 9" rain in a matter of hours. Yard looked like a small lake, culverts running so hard it sounded like rapids on a river. Last night a blast of snow and cold again. Ugh. I want to get my boat up to the main garage and get it ready for some spring fishing. Yard too muddy though
