Some recent Small & Mini BGE cooking
 
I was curious to see how much meat I could fit on my Mini BGE so I crammed a 5 lb bone-in shoulder into it. I needed the help of a couple of silicone bands to help squeeze it in:

The dome thermometer had to be pulled out some to keep it from skewering the pork upon closing the dome:

The butt went to my fantasy football draft where I forgot to take a photo of it until the draft was over and it had sat drying a bit in a chafer:

For the Small Egg I found this nice looking tri-tip:

Rubbed with Rub Co Original & Santa Maria and cooked indirect with red oak smoke wood until IT hit about 115:

Then seared on all sides:

And sliced:

That tri tip looks the goods right now, but I bet the pork was great too!

Nice work John! Yoda and Yaddle are getting a workout!

Looks good from here!

Great cooks John... I REALLY like the tri tip. That is perfectly done!

I'd be curious to learn more about the silicone bands...

It cracks me up when I see these cooks on these tiny little eggs. I'm surprised you don't cut off all the air circulation it's so crammed. I keep expecting to see you using bungie cords on the outside of the egg to hold the lid closed and doing a hybrid BBQ-pressure cook at the same time! :laugh:

Food looks great, as always, BTW.

Mongo, the bands are great for using in place of cooking twine. They're food safe & can handle up to 600 degrees. The product

 

looks like what we have (our packaging was thrown out long ago so I don't remember the brand).

Hmm, I need to buy some cords and try that! :becky:

Thx Gore!
