    Going camping in a few weeks and we have been put in charge of most meats...

    Got up this morning and threw on 4 corned beef flats that had been soaked and then rubbed with Montreal Steak seasoning, 4 naked fatties, and 1 chuck roast. Wanted to also do a pork shoulder, but the Egg was full to the gills so that will have to wait.
    Just pulled the fatties and it is all I can do not to slice into one... but the house smells awesome.
    The fatties and corned beefs are for the trip - some will be diced up for hash, some will be sliced thin for sandwiches. Will do all the cutting/slicing before I vacu-seal them and toss them in the deep freeze.... pics to follow.

    Sounds like you will all eat good thats for sure!

    I get designated as camp chef for our Elk trips. The boys love the smoked meats I bring. I cut up the meats and add them to fried rice or what I call camp hash, and then vacuum seal. When we get back to camp at night, I just throw a bag of food into a big pot of boiling water, and 20 minutes later we have a piping hot meal of goodness. Makes it easy. No pans to clean and we burn the plates.

    Thanks guys! The trip is the first week of April... hopefully it's not going to be freezing.

    The fatties after an hour and a half... These will be used for sausage gravy and or sausage and egg sandwiches.


    A very full Egg - picture this with the 4 fatties around the chuckie. There are 2 flats on each grate.
    I was using the spider and adjustable rig from the Ceramic Grill Store - that along with an extender allows for 3 levels of cooking.
