Reason for picnic over Boston?

It was what was available in the size I needed.  I will be buying them from now on though.  Having the skin on, I scored the skin in a checkerboard pattern and then when the roast was done, peeled the skin off and laid I’d fat down on a sheet pan and finished it to crispy in the oven.  The smoke mixed with the rub/marinade made for the best chicharrones I have ever had.

Tell me when it peaks and is on the downslope and I will jump on.  I am a late adapter with social media platforms.

That looks fantastic.  I need to try my hand at making a fish soup sometime.

Guajillo, ancho, arbol, and pasilla toasted chiles for the sauce to stir into the chicken broth



Smoked chicharrones are a thing and amazing.  This was before placing under the broiler to finish.

I woke up with what appears to be a broken upper back.  Was in so much pain that wiping after my morning purge was near impossible.  Dr appt already made.

Go with the knock off BGE that Lowes and Home Depot. They work pretty well for a fraction the price.

This post raises a very solid point.

AST what is the best way to aquire a BGE or PRIMO XL that's not full price TIA

I purchased a Primo through my wholesale supplier for my pool business.  Nowhere near retail.

You’ve got my interest.  Does that thing help with getting the temp dialed in to start with or just to keep it steady once you’re there?

It uses the fan to ramp up to temperature.

What AST said. BGEs and that style are better smokers than pellets, better grillers than pellets, better pizza than pellets, better everything except expensive and you can’t plug it in and turn a dial.

I picked up a DigiQ and can absolutely plug it in and turn a dial.  Makes smoking large cuts on a busy weekend so much easier.

My Yoder makes pretty good pizza.  :ck:

I do not doubt that.  A ceramic grill can crank up to 900 degrees though and you have a wider varieties of pizza styles to make.

17
They absolutely are a viable option.  I prefer the Primo XL as they can fit 2 packer briskets without extra rack purchases.  You can also do a 16 hour smoke without adding fuel once you get it dialed in.  Amazing for grilling and a pretty good pizza oven as well.  Hard to do that with a pellet or offset.

Price point is high but for the versatility it can’t be beat.

AST, hit me with your smoked chicken step by step. i want to do that

For this soup recipe, really easy.  Rub with mixture of 1 part coarse kosher and 1 part coarse ground black pepper.  Smoked at desired temp with desired wood until done or close to done.  No worries about skin crispness as the skin does not get used.  You are just getting the smoke flavor in the meat and it can finish cooking in the soup if not cooked through.
