Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Made a pernil with my father-in-law, using the recipe for the marinade he has perfected over the last 20 years down in Panama. I can't give away the secret ingredient, but you'd do fine with a mix of onion, red bell pepper, garlic, some soy or Worcestershire, salt and pepper. We used culantro, which can be hard to find in the U.S., but cilantro or just plain flat leaf parsley works. Rubbed her down with salt before adding the marinade, and sliced some pockets to get the marinade into the meat.

On the Egg at around 400* with a few chunks of hickory, covered with foil for 2 hours. We basted it and then another hour or so with the foil off. We didn't check temp, but knew it was done when it is kind of wobbled when poked.

This is traditionally made with the upper leg, but it was too big at the butcher, so we used a boston butt.
