Breaking in the new GMG

Now that it is officially "after Christmas" I get to use my Christmas present, a GMG Crockett that has been sitting patiently in its box in the garage since before Thanksgiving.

MamaBear has decreed that she wants me to smoke a pork butt for our annual New Years Eve party down at our lake. After many consultations with my own personal "Meat Yoda", I think I'll have it all under control. I'm going down to the lake on Friday, and I will run the GMG a little to season it and get it ready. The butt's going in on Saturday morning.

Stay Tuned!

Tim

Make sure you update your firmware before you head down. Otherwise, you may have a very weird reading probe.

BTW, I have the same plan for New Years Eve, but we may throw a rack or 2 of ribs on there as well

Where do you get your Butts from? I'm thinking I'll swing by Kenricks after work tomorrow. I know they have good meat.

I get my Pork butts at the Schnucks on Loughbourough. I usually pick them up on sale for 1.19/ lb there. I bought two last time they were on sale and threw them in the freezer. Turbs smoked one of the ones I brought from there in Amana.

He also smoked a second one for DW and I that we took with us and it was amazing as well. (singlehandedly sold the wife on the smoker with that move. thanks again Turbs)

Reminds me I need to pull one out of the freezer.

For Ribs... I am still looking for a good place in STL to get mine. All I seem to find is Spare ribs or prepacked once frozen packages. I really want some baby back ones

I had to fire mine up Christmas Eve, when we ran out of oven space inside.

I'm inclined to think so...

You are going to love it!! Check and see if your firmware is the latest. I tried the prototype version, a few months ago. It did not work well and had to reload the latest proven version. If you try the prototype version, let us know if it is now working.
