I went out this morning to fire up the Egg to throw on a brisket and it was frozen shut... Tossed a few fire starters down the hatch and warmed things up and finally got the lid open... It started snowing about 30 minutes before this was taken...

Rubbed the brisket down with some Simply Marvelous Peppered Cow over RO lump charcoal with some cherry chunks. Cooked it in the 275 - 300 range.

Paired it with a side of no boil mac and cheese...

In the words of Big Al - this didn't suck!

:whoo:!!

I'd hit that!

Do you think a propane torch around the lid a couple of times would have helped?

Smoker frozen shut - that is funny! I've had to shovel 2' deep snow out around my drum, but haven't had it frozen shut -yet.

Brisket looks great. :thumb:

Looks awesome. Tell us more about this Mac and cheese please!

Easiest mac & cheese I have ever made... this is now my go to mac and cheese. I eye ball everything but the milk - I measure out 5 cups...
I use less butter, and more mac and cheeses...

Basic recipe:

2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
1 stick butter
12 ounces yellow cheddar cheese
4 Ozs. mozzarella cheese
5 cups milk
salt and pepper to taste
Pre heat oven 350,
Layer macaroni, butter, and cheese in the order given in a 9-by-13 dish. Pour milk over the top layer. Bake 1 hr. do not cover.
To prevent this dish from becoming too brown and crusty, cover with foil for the last 15 min. of baking.

Great lookin' grub there. I had to fire up some coals on my Weber just last night to thaw out the vents as they were frozen shut, lol.

Great looking cook!

Adding that Mac-n-Cheese recipe to my growing list of "must try" recipes.

Brisket and Mac-n-Cheese go together like peas and carrots.

Ha, you know you are hardcore when you have to thaw out your grill to get the lid open.

Nice looking dinner!

You've gotta be tough to cook in the great white north. I'll be shovelling out my gasser to do a tenderloin for NY Eve.

I wouldn't recommend using a torch to break the freeze on an egg. Ceramics don't like thermal shock. Putting a modest amount of heat down the chute was the perfect approach.

Happy New Year to all!:beer:
