I first posted this idea in the Site Supporters Lounge just to make sure that I had Doc's and the Mod's approval before moving forward.

Everyone is welcome to play, simply post your grilling pictures in the appropriate Gal or Guy thread. You can enter multiple times. We all will vote for which thread we think has the most appetizing pics.

This should be fun. I'm sure there will be a lot of grilling/smoking/cooking outdoors for Father's Day and July 4th, so it should be easy to snap a pic and play.

Go Gals , let's give them a run for their money!

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Default Re: Gals vs Guys Outdoor Cooking/Grilling/Smoking Throwdown

nice wings, food.

someone remind me to take a pork shoulder out of the freezer tonight so i can make it tomorrow or monday.

ok, so, how does one go about smoking a whole california pic-a-nic. how many hours, at what temp? what temp should the meat reach? what is a "stall"?

i have an infrared thermometer and my old probe thermometer to check the temp of the smoker and the meat this time.

tia for any help.

Here's a good read on pulled pork. He explains what "the stall" is.

Lol, cooksie. I like his Toolkit & Food-themed tunes:

Toolkit
1 grill or smoker with lots of fuel
1 digital meat thermometer, preferably with a probe and a cable
1 alarm clock
1 lawn chair
1 good book
6 pack of beer
1 pair of shades
plenty of food themed tunes
sun tan lotion
--------------
Tunes, etc.

It's about 95 degrees outside , add to that the heat from the pit. I look like a ragamuffin....black rings under my eyes from mascara running, sweaty shirt, sweaty face......are we having fun yet?

I love this thing:

Cooksie, I just sit my chimney starter on my charcoal grate.

No need to use a well-seasoned jellyroll pan (all mine look like that and they bake the BEST cookies!).

LOL! I've only ever heard it called "the plateau" before. Just gotta wait it out.

"Allow 1.5 to 2 hours per pound but it might take more or less. Each hunk of meat is different, and rain, wind, ambient temp will impact cooking times. The temp will rise steadily to about 140 to 150F. and slow down for a looooonnnng while as moisture moves to the surface and the collagens turn to liquid. It might hold there for an hour or more. This is called "the stall" or "the zone". Don't panic and don't crank the heat. Be patient. Magic is happening."

BT, I just saw your original question. I didn't read the whole article that Cooksie posted, but it looked pretty thorough.

The pork should reach 195 to 200 before it's ready to pull. The best way to tell is to pick it up (with neoprene or other heat-resistant gloves) and if it feels like a big water balloon, it's done. One BBQ champion calls this "the wa-wa effect", LOL!

Enjoy!

I have to fess up a bit here. This morning when I first read this, I thought, "Well, but my chicken is already in there on the grate." That was a second add of charcoal. I did some more reading today and discovered that if you need some more charcoal, you can just add your charcoal directly to an already hot fire box without using the chimney to get it going first....the minion method (I think). Total newb here to smoking . You gals and guys who have done this for a while don't understand how little a real newbie knows . You've gotta tell us the minute details .

Whoa!! Minion Method! LOL!

The Minion Method just means to mound up a pile of unlit charcoal in the bottom of your cooker, and dump a chimney of hot charcoal on top of it. Jim Minion first posted about the method he developed 15 - 20 years ago on the BBQ Forum http://www.rbjb.com/rbjb/rbjbboard/ (where they taught me how to cook low and slow BBQ, and where I learned how to learn how to compete), when he was trying to keep the starting temps low in his Weber Smokey Mountain smoker. He revolutionalized the low and slow fire starting at the time.

Yes, you can add unlit charcoal to an already-hot fire.

The BBQ forum is a wonderful place to ask detailed questions about low and slow cooking, as well as grilling. But you can ask here, too - some of us know a little about it here as well. :-)

The photos below are of 1) Jim Minion, and 2) my friend, Ray Lampe (DrBBQ) and Jim, competing at an Iron Chef challenge at the
International Invitational Jack Daniels BBQ competition in Lynchburg, TN .
