Gals vs Guys Outdoor Cooking/Grilling/Smoking Throwdown

What: A just for fun, one-time throwdown between the gals and the guys
When: Friday, June 18 to Monday, July 5
Who: Anyone who wants to get in on the fun – You don’t have to be an expert griller/smoker, or have a lot of experience cooking outside, or have a bunch of fancy equipment – Anyone who wants to play is welcome to play

Grill, smoke, or cook anything outside between Friday, June 18 and Monday, July 6. Save your pic’s and we’ll organize them into a Gals vs the Guys poll and open the poll for voting on Tuesday, July 6. The voting will be anonymous, and you can contribute as many pic’s as you want for your team.

If you’re interested in being a part of the throwdown, just say so and you’ll be added to either the Gals Team or the Guys Team.

Re: Gals vs Gus Outdoor Cooking/Grilling/Smoking Throwdown

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 :D, let's give them a run for their money!

nice wings, food. :chef:

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.

It's about 95 degrees outside :eek:, 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!).

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

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."
