Pulled the trigger on a GMG
« on: May 27, 2022, 08:01:24 PM »
Finally….
After a handful of years talking about it, coastal had them on sale for a price I couldn’t pass up!
Did a ‘Lumberjack Log’ the first night and it was phenomenal!



Had a 7 pound butt in the freezer that I pulled out Tuesday night and brined in apple juice overnight last night. Gave it a good rub with a base layer of stone ground Dijon. Went in the smoke at 8am, pulled it out at 200 a half hour ago. (225 until internal temp of 170, foil wrapped and turned up to 280)The resting time is killing me!

Little disappointed, but it is still better than you can get in 90% of the bbq joints around. I think I pulled it a little early, the GMG probes said 205/202, my wireless unit said 195. I’m going to guess it was closer to the 195 than the 205. Let it rest an hour, bone pulled clean but the meat stayed pretty intact. Not quite all of it was melt apart done, but what wasn’t was cut-able with a fork. Juices caught by the foil made an awesome drizzle, and is pretty much what made me say it is good enough for this one. Next one will be left unwrapped for the duration at 225 with a pan under to catch the drippings for the drizzle. Can’t stand sauced up BBQ, but drippings are another story

Looks great

My probes run 10 degrees hot so when they get to the temp I want I know I have 10 degrees to work with and use the manual one from there

Looks great👍
I agree with you that Home cook bbqers generally are better than most bbq joints.
Hey! I'm not a complete idiot I have parts missing. Though sometimes I wonder.

Food looks amazing. I love bbqing and smoking things...It can be quite addicting.

My only  :twocents: is to cover the "drip pan" with aluminum foil as it's a bear to clean after a couple good cooks.

Going to start doing messy smokes on an upper rack with a cheap foil pan under it, that way we can reuse the drippings and keep the grill clean at the same time

I’ll second wrapping the drip tray in foil. Also throw some temp probes in each corner to learn the hot spots. On mine, back left runs quite a bit hotter than the right front. Try reverse searing some steaks. That and burgers are in the weekly rotation.

We love our GMG, bought it for the wife for Christmas a few years ago.  The temp probes are adjustable if they aren't ready properly, ours are off by a few degrees also.  Definitely want to line the drip tray with foil and they sell paper buckets for the grease bucket.  Makes cleaning that a lot easier.  :tup:
