BBQ Porn

My wife looks at me strangely when I grab the camera to snap some pics of my latest BBQ creation.  I guess I started photographing the process to share with other “enthusiasts” (some would call us freaks).  But I don’t think it’s that crazy.

Anyway, I fired up the Big Green Egg last night and put a 7 lb. beef brisket on for lunch today and sandwiches the rest of the week.  I used a rub that a co-worker gave me a while back.  It’s called Brisket Rub and it’s from the Goode Company in Texas.  I’ve liked most of the stuff from this outfit, but I think there are other brisket rubs that I like better.

I tended the fire late into the night, watched the Nittany Lions knock off the Buckeyes, and saw most of game 3 of the World Series.  I finally called it a night around midnight, slept soundly for 6 hours, and woke to find the egg chugging along peacefully at 235 degrees.  The brisket was done, so I wrapped it in foil, stuck it in a dry cooler, and got another hour of sleep.

Here’s what lunch looks like today.  Now who’s crazy?  🙂

  1. Interesting……
    A big green egg user is also a prime lens junkie.
    I just bought my large egg this last spring, and I love it.
    I’ve wanted one for years, but finally have a home with an appropriate patio/back yard where an egg can be properly kept and care for.
    My favorite bbq item so far is chicken drumsticks. I’m trying to get the same effect as the turkey drumsticks they sell at fairs and amusment parks. However chicken in general seems to be my favorite thing so far.
    My camera… A pentax K10D and the lens that never leaves my camera…. the pentax 35mm mnly a macro. It’s only a 2.8, But I love it.
