One more question... will doing the foil-towel-cooler thing after the cook soften the bark significantly?

OK, everybody, I finally decided to take the plunge on the Big Green Egg, and I'm preparing for the maiden voyage with a 8.3 lb pork butt. I'm planning to do overnight cooks with it once I get more c ...

I've got two racks of baby backs going on the WSM right now, and I'm going to throw some Sriracha wings on with them in about an hour. I'm going to wrap the ribs for the last hour of the cook like us ...

I've recently been finishing my pork butt off in the oven after it hits 150 to speed up the cooking time. I'm wondering if I can just raise my WSM temp to 300 and do the same thing while retaining th ...

I've now done ribs on my WSM three times. The first time was by far the best (beginner's luck), and since then I've had trouble replicating it. Last time I felt like the ribs came out kinda dry, so ...

So the steaks were a little thinner than I wanted, closer to an inch than 1 1/2.

Well, I'd say things went pretty well. I ran the smoker between 300-345 the whole time. Put the chicken on the bottom grate, then put the sausages on the top grate about 20 minutes after the chicken ...

Thanks. Do I brine that long even for just individual chicken breasts? I thought maybe a few hours at most.
