When I leave the house and have major anxiety about pit temps when doing a long cook I figured out this workaround to keep an eye out for temp spikes-
I place the Thermoworks Smoke remote display directly in front of the Alexa Show. Using the Alexa App I drop in on the Alexa Show which displays the temp. In this way I can ask the Mrs to adjust the vents if they need adjusting while I’m off picking up the kids or running an errand.
You gotta be a crazy person to pass up thighs for breast meat. Thighs are so much juicier and flavorful and they cost about half as much as breasts.

Shrimp were on sale at East Gloucester Stop and Shop and I was in the mood for something light after smashing down a decadent steak sandwich for lunch.
Kate whipped up a salad and I was in charge of the shrimp.
One of the things about grilling shrimp is you want them pretty dry like the way you want chicken so you can get that char on the outside without drying out the inside.
So I treat them the same way patting the meat (shrimp) dry with a paper towel while preparing the marinade.
The marinade? Very simple- a half a stick of buttah melted in the microwave, a couple of turns of EVOO, salt, pepper and three heads of minced garlic.
Mixed the marinade ingredients together and tossed the patted down shrimp in to soak for a bit.
Grill on high to preheat, grates seasoned with cooking spray and then to skewer the shrimp.
I like to raft the meat so it doesn’t spin on the skewers. This way when you flip them they flip all at once.
On Kate’s she asked for the Paul Prudhomme Blackened Fish Rub. I went with the McKormick’s Gruillmates Mesquite.
The Weber Q1200 is perfect for getting home from work and wanting to do a quick cook.
A couple of minutes per side and a garlic butter mop on each turn to keep them moist is all it took.
Kate mixed up a fantastic salad. I dressed it with Briannas Home Style Dressings Blush Wine Vinaigrette.
This is the seasoning we used for Kate’s –
