    First rib rack cooked on the GMG Davy Crockett

    Had fun on Saturday cooking my first rack of baby backs on the GMG wood pellet grill that I purchased about a month ago. I used what I'll call a "modified Huskee" rib rub and prepped the night before since the rub contains salt and had the meat in the fridge overnight. I used less cumin and cayenne, and added paprika. Probably should have used less table salt or substituted sea salt or kosher salt. I used the Mav 733 to monitor grill temp and compared to the GMG readout on the app for my smartphone. I really love the wifi feature on the GMG controller. Results shown below.

    Huskee So I'd have to say that this was mostly successful. Taste was fantastic! (Thanks Huskee!) But I've got to get a better handle on grill temps left to right and front to back to avoid over-cooking or under-cooking.
    Also, I'll probably trim the rack to get a full slab in the grill next time rather than cutting it in half. The Davy Crockett has some size limitations and I'd really like to get two racks in there rather than one that's cut in half. One rack disappeared before I had my "fair share"!!!

    They look GREAT... I am jealous of your awesome smoke ring!


      Looks great to me!


        Thanks, guys.....yeah, they didn't last long!


          Congrats on getting a DC wifi Ray!! I am currently cooking a chicken on my DC and it looks great. Your ribs really looked good and I am glad you like your DC.


            Thanks, Barry. I've had a lot of fun with the DC. Absolutely love the wifi.....extremely useful! And, most importantly, love the flavor of the cook from the wood fire.

              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

              We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
