    National BBQ Day?

    Seems that in addition to Memorial Day, it is also National BBQ Day. In that honor I got myself a grill basket. Another round with Pepper Poppers and BBQ Chicken today. Also grilled quash. Maybe I can get the poppers to hold together when I flip them now.

    What are you eating today?

    I have my MasterBuilt pre-heating now. I have two 2.5lb meatloaves prepped and ready to go along with two nice sized chicken leg quarters. I'll put everything in the smoker about 1pm at 250° with applewood chips. It'll be ready about 5pm or so. Bobbie cut up some onion that I'll toss in the smoker for a short while, then caramelize it with potato chunks. Add some salad and we'll eat good tonight!

    Had lamb kebabs yesterday, like Sharon said, keeping it simple today. Too many projects to spend much time cooking.

    Carol, Do the poppers low and slow, no need to flip them. Esp if you have them cut in half.

    Did my cooking last night...made the mistake of starting a 4 pound pork loin at 10:00 PM. In an untried smoker, to boot. It was finally done about 3:30 this morning, lol.

    But I CAN say good things about my new remote thermometer, the iGrill Mini from iDevices. I can use my phone to monitor the cook via Bluetooth, and it has a 150 foot range.

    I may smoke some burgers later, may stuff with some cheese and bacon filling.

    I can't adjust the distance from the heat to the grill. i can adjust the heat. The first time, the heat was too high and I brned one side of he bacon, so I turned the heat down to medium for the other side. This time I was going to put them in the basket along with squash slices and grill on medium ans flip to do the other side. Other suggestions?

    Also I have boneless chicken thighs I want to grill and brush with BBQ sauce. How long per side for them? Thanks for the help.

    Got asked on FB about making poppers. Hope you weigh in. I am the worst possible resource for cooking instructions.
