Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Terrific Party Sandwiches - Media Noche

The Cuban-style pork butt (Lechon Asado) I served on New Years' Eve was presented as a straight-up plate and fork appetizer with Mojo on the side; as well as part of a more elaborate Cuban sandwich known as Media Noche ("Midnight Sandwich"). The Cubans actually serve this on a very dense bread and the sandwich is pressed like an Italian paninni. As a party or deuver, I chose to serve it on lighter potato rolls and sans any pressing. Here's what I offered:[p]Potato Roll
Butter on both sides of roll
Lechon Asado (Cuban pulled pork)
Healthy squirt of Mojo
Sliced pickles and pickled onions (bread and butter style)
Swiss cheese[p]I smoked 17 lbs. of butt for the party. We had 42 people starting at 9:00, and a bunch of other H'or deuvers and the pork was gone when the company had all left by 2:30.
