Fresh Made Hamburgers

I used our new kitchen aid meat grinder to grind up some beef eye round. I used part of it to make some hamburgers. They were a bit dry due to the lack of fat but pretty good for my first attempt. I also grilled up some broccolini. Yum.

Thursday Boston Butt

I have a 3.5 lb Boston Pork Butt ready to smoke on the BGE today. I’ll update this post as we go.

Spice Rub

  • 1/2 Cup Kosher Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Crack Black Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Oregano
  • 2 Tbsp Paprika
  • 1 Tbsp Celery Salt (no celery seed in the house so I  kept the amount down)
  • 1 Tbsp Chilli Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Onion Powder (no garlic powder in the house)

Its going to make more than I need but I will save the rest for later.

Looks like my phone decided to not save the picture I took before I put the butt and wood chips on the BGE. I’ll make sure I pay more attention when I take it off. Its been 2 hours and I haven’t opened the egg once. Its holding steady at 250 degrees F. I love the egg.

I had to add some more charcoal so here’s a picture around 3 hours in.

I used the BGE plate setter for the first time. It worked great. It really does make it really easy to do indirect cooking. I can’t wait to use it again.

Here it is done after 4 hours and 45 minutes of rest. Not long enough to make pulled pork but delicious none the less.

Genesis

I finally put together my new Weber Genesis E-310 today. It only took 2 hours surprisingly. Here are some pictures.

Fully put together


Take a look at that.

Pork Chops and some Burnt Bread

I also did some more spray painting on the charcoal grill. Its already to be used again. Very excited to get all my grills working.
