I've been on vacation since June 30th and am currently in too much of a meat coma to post pics, but since then I've smoked:

- Cracked pepper & garlic beef jerky
- Thai turkey jerky
- Chicken thighs in Alabama white sauce
- 2 whole chickens for the 4th of July picnic
- Baby back ribs
- An 11.5 lb whole packer brisket
- 4 different pizzas on my new wood fired pizza oven attachment for the smoker

My wife said that we now need to eat salads for the rest of the week to make up for all that, and I told her that's fine because we've still got plenty of leftover brisket to chop up and put on top of it. :ban:

Care to share the Thai Turkey Jerky Recipe? Sounds good!
Sure, it's pretty simple:

  • 6 lb Ground Turkey
  • ¾ cup fish sauce
  • ⅓ cup dark or light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground white pepper
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon Cure #1

Mix everything up and let it rest overnight in the fridge. The next day load up your jerky cannon and shoot out all your strips.

4 hours on the smoker at 180 gets it about right every time, and I flip them over after the first 2 hours.

Might try this over some coals

I hate these stupid GIF/video things on Facebook where you then have to search high and low for a damn text recipe. I swear on FB half the things that are shared like this are just food porn, which is why finding the link to the recipe itself is always a pain in the arse...

Got a link to the recipe?

I hate them too, I'm always like "how much olive oil" "how much soy sauce" they never show you the measurements, just them dumping things in, drives me nuts!

cleaning out my Green Egg for some burgers tonight and found a pretty bad crack in the bottom of it:(

Unfortunately I did not register it when I bought it so I doubt I'll be covered by any warranty. I've had it for almost 6 years and have put A LOT of miles on it. I use it 4 times a week on average and often more.


Not sure what to do at this point... ride it till the wheels fall off and hope it doesn't self destruct and start a fire? replace immediately and consider it good while it lasted? Do I get another Green Egg (I love the thing)? Sell my Memphis Pellet smoker and buy something awesome like a Yoder YS640?

pics of said crack....

Quick look @jammin shows they warranty them. Plenty of people have had them crack and they replace it. Then just either save the base they send you for a rainy day or replace it and maybe build out a second one or send it to me so I can :) pays to buy the best!

I had a crack in my fire box due to heat. I went to my local BBQ store they had me send a pic in an email with when and where I purchased it and they got me a new one under warranty and shipped it to the store for free no questions asked!!!

^^ everything I've seen shows that company is a real class act. Unless you paid cash you have some record, somewhere. Still doesn't matter they'll warranty it, best of luck. In a worst-case scenario split it with them.

My French inlaws and neighbors love it, as do our German friends. I have Swiss and Argentinian friends who love it. Thus it is world famous!:ban:
Are you willing to share the recipe for said world famous dry-rub? I am always tweaking and trying new things and wouldn't mind giving a new rub a try.

Need some advice... Cooking some swineapples tomorrow. I've done 1 before. Tomorrow I'm doing three. Last time it took about 3 hours for 1. So should I cook 3 for 9 hours? Is that the math breakdown? Or will I be better off at like 5-6 hours? It's hard to gauge the weight since it will be cored pineapple plus pork plus bacon all separate. Any suggestions welcome

^^I would rotate them to cook evenly and probe the smallest. If you probe the largest well then, you know. Since, it will be tough to guage, try to determine the least stuffed. It will be noticeable I suspect, but if not then probe any and rdwahahb. Im not certain on time but should be similar. Glad you are loving the mes 30, clearly an excellent smoker, ehh!

You definitely don't multiply by 3. It's 3 separate pieces, so they should come close to the same time unless it's packed with no air space between them. The temp of the cooker (grill, smoker, oven, etc.) is the same.

Use the temp to decide when done but I would guess 4 hours of that.

Haha, I meant if they ever meet they might plot against us both for smoking them out all the time and not sharing :)

I figure they could splash out the 150, if they like what they smell. I give them coffee as a good will gesture.

Loving would be an understatement. My poor neighbors are constantly enduring my smoking. By enduring I mean... Smelling without getting to eat 😁
Same here, I've had numerous people stop in front of my house and ask what I'm making and telling me how it smells so good up and down the street :D

Looks good. Have you ever done tri-tip like that?



I went to cook out way out in the country one time where they built a fire with coals on a plow disc and threw a barrel over it. Tri-tips & chickens were hung inside. Really good food.

I have. Good stuff.

Green Egg honored the warranty and the replacement came in this week. Just in time too because i found an even worse crack on the opposite/back side of the BGE. Here are some pics of the other crack & replacement process:



bottom of the other crack. looks like eventually the 2 would meet and the base would split:



the new base is larger than the old 2011 unit. you can see in this pic that it wouldn't fit all the way in:



i used my 24" crescent wrench to make room:



lastly, the refurbished unit completed & heating up for some turkey burgers:

So Im smoking 12 lbs of pork shoulder saturday (two 6lb cuts). Want to rest for 2 hours. I was thinking of putting it in the smoker at 5am so it will be ready for consumption for a party at 5pm. Also will be tossing about 3lbs of ribs in when I foil the pork at 50% (right around noon). Does this sound like a good plan to you guys? I figured that by adding the ribs when I foil the meat I can add more chips without over smoking the shoulder

cracked one will be great for a planter
My thoughts exactly. Makes me want another nest for it - would looking great on that little rolling stand. I'm worried the cracks are so great it would be another problem waiting to happen though. Especially combining water and our chilly winters
