Got the Meat Yoda's rub all ready to go, did not get a chance to unbox the unit. Tonight for sure.


Stay tuned sports fans.

Just cause you mentioned it... your Butts are 99 cents a lb at Loughbourgh. Buy em and freeze em for you next smoking occasion.

I meant to agree with you on the Bear claws. They are pretty nice for shredding the meat. I also used them to pull out of the smoker

Meal #2...

Made a beef rump roast. Made up some herb butter with a softened stick of butter, some rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper and liberally coated the roast. You want you roast at room temp. I forgot to let mine sit out, and as soon as the butter contacted the cold beef, it turned solid and would not stick. Made a hell of a mess, but smelled awesome...

Set the smoker on 500 but the best it would do was 480. it was about 20 degrees and windy, so I can imagine that it was having a hard time keeping up. Put the roast in for about 20 minutes or so to get a good crust going, the set the heat down to 250 and let it go till it got an internal temp of about 140. It took about 3 hours for a 2 lb roast. Took it off, wrapped in it foil and let it rest for about an hour in a cooler.

Rump roasts are very flavorful, but can be a bit 'chewy' if you don't cook them right. This apparently is the right way, as this one was tender and juicy and tasted awesome. I used the drippings to make a gravy.

The last thing I tried was to smoke some chocolate chip cookies. These did not go so well, as the bottoms burnt on most of them, especially on the right hand side of the grill. Not sure what I need to do, but I'll figure it out eventually. But the parts that weren't burnt were heavenly. If you've never had a smoked chocolate chip cookie, you don't know what you are missing.

Have the same problem w/ my Davy Crockett. Right side is hotter, and the overall temp is about 30-40 deg higher than the set temp. Been watching the GMG Facebook pages. Have not tried this myself, but one guy says he solved the problems by sliding the diffuser over the firepot all the way to the right. Also loaded the new firmware (6.5, Prototype). He foiled the top drip tray and slid the drip trays to the right (ensures the temp sensor on the left side of the grill is not obstructed). And he said to make sure the fan blades under the pellet hopper are not rubbing on any of the fan gasket material (ie. fan runs unobstructed).

AND lastly, you can add a correction to the set temp to get the actual grill grate temp closer to the set temp via the smartphone app. (The current iOS app allows a +/-20 deg adjustment, the new Android app allows a +/-50 deg adjustment.

I'm going to try all during my next cook.

Your roast looks fabulous!!
