ANYWAY, along with the move I decided that the table that my big green egg has sat in ever since i got her over 3 years ago has been in need of some of my attention.
After hours of sanding, striping, staining and sealing I have a "NEW" table that will house the BGE at our new house. We finally are getting a home with a deck and I think this will look great !

So tonight I decided to put these to use on a pork loin. After all it is fall (MY FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR !) and the apple and pork just go together ! Enjoy the pictures and I promise more posts on a more regular basis !

Well today was a very COLD winters day and i really wanted to do somthing on the BGE. I took out a pork shoulder but we really did not want the usual pulled pig sandwhich or plate. Hmm what to do what to do. Kelly said that she has a real desire for some mexican so I got to thinking, what about Tacos Al Pastor? Good enough.
Also today I am trying Byrons Butt Rub. It smells wonderful and taste great. I LOVE IT. So I woke up this moring and got the fire going. Now keep in mind that the air temperature outside was 7 degrees above zero not to mention the below zero wind chill. However it is going to be a clear day and NOTHING, i repeat NOTHING smells better than a hickory fire buringin on a cold cold day. In fact as I type this I have a roaring fire in the fireplace.
And the final product.... Taco Al Pastor... MY VERSION

She went wild for the injection that i used on the fried turkey the other day so we decided to try injecting some marinade in the prime rib. I am also using some of the BGE Green Pecan Rub. I really like the Rub, it has a great flavor that really compliments most anything we have tried it on so far. I have to say that I was not all that impressed with the taste of the final product, and I think it is because we used a roasted garlic creole butter injection. THis gave the meat a slightly sweet taste which i DO NOT LIKE for beef. Oh well wont make that mistake again. As for future cooking sessions, I am researching several recipes from the cookbooks that I got over Christmas. At any rate enjoy my latest grill session.... THE FIRST OF 2010.

Rudys is a great texas bbq JOINT in texas that kelly and I found when we lived in the Dallas area a few years ago. Rudys is the kind of old meat market that you go and order the meat you want by weight. I had been craving some of their que ever since we left. THey have a great rub that has a wonderful spice to it. I ordered several bottles of their regular rub and 2 bottles of their turkey rub which is great for all poultry. THey also carry two forms of their sauce or sause as they call it. THe first is the sissy sause, which despite its name still has some kick to it and the regular sause. Both are a great spicy tomato based that goes great with chicken, pork and beef.
Mississippi State University
So in case you did not know I am also a graduate of Mississippi State University. GO BULLDOGS ! Mississippi State has a wonderful dairy program. Every year we order some of their award winning cheese. THis year we ordered the usual Edam and Jalepeno Chedder but in addition to the normal order of cheese we noticed last spring that MSU is now carrying a supply of BBQ sauce and Spice rubs. So I am giving them a try.
The Rubs are:
The sauces are:
and Regular BBG (This bottle arrived broken)
I am planning on doing some cooking soon and will let you know as soon as I have a report .
