1st cook on my GMG Booney

Post by pepe » Thu Sep 17, 2015 11:32 pm

Thanks to Chris at UG for all his help yesterday, loading the Booney into the back of the wagon, taking phone calls from me re: setups etc.

So, got home to Dunsborough about 4:30pm yesterday and immediately unpacked the unit, home alone but I was determined to burn it in. Got the leflets out of the hopper then flipped her over to install the legs, I did this lying on its side. Then cut away the cardboard box and removed the Styrofoam. Carefully righted it upright and was ready for the business.

Did a burn in for about 30-40 mins at 400 F, then cooled her off and did a wifi upgrade from the mobile to the house wifi, piece of piss.

Was getting late and I was playing with the profile settings, so I threw on a cheese kransky, it didn't explode so I win.

Today I got some pork fillets, was wanting thick tenderloins but not to be. I made a profile and let her run

175 c for 10 mins

135 c until the internal meat reached 57 c

tent foil for 10 - 15 mins

Seriously succulent pork

Cheers Bentley, not that I quite understand that phrase but I am going to get so much use from the GMG, bloody great piece of equipment.

Fantastic Pepe!

And that simple profile shows the real strength of the GMG, stress free cooking done to your exact specification, the profiles have changed my life, by allowing me to cook with all the care and attention I want without having to watch it every step of the way! I'm cooking tonight's roast lamb on my DC right now.....set it up this morning at 6am then came to BBQ School, when I go home, it'll be sitting there cooked and keeping warm....might even stop at the pub for a couple of beers on the way! :D

"Pellet burners began in the time when Evil Stick Burners ruled BBQ history, when the Traegers made themselves into kings…and gods…using the powers of the DarkSide of the Force. The Technologically minded have ever been ready to obey one who wields great power. Those who learned the powers of the DarkSide were quick to exploit this technology—to make War on Evil Stick Burners. Again and again the DarkSide has surged forth, like a storm…devouring whole backyards and entire BBQ Competitions. Those who mastered The Dark power became The Dark power. They unleashed destruction, for no other reason to anger the Evil Stick Burners. They despoiled Eggheads…destroyed whole groups of WSM civilizations, and crushed the Elitist charcoal burners. Some of them, I am ashamed to say, have returned to the Evil Stick burner."

Hope that starts to explain the DarkSide, if not you must take more time, and learn the ways.
