Default 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:







Thanks for looking!

Aw man, that's a beautiful tri-tip right there. At least I don't know what I'm missing. Nice eggsecution.

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!

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!

Thx Gore!
