Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

The 17th Annual EGGtoberfest was amazing - here are the highlights Click Here

    That's a full load of lump. I thought you were only supposed to fill it up to where the fire ring starts. Am I wrong? Do others fill it up that much for a long cook?

    Also, approximately how much wood chips did you use and is it spread all through the lump?

    jimi,

    Shane cooked a whole shoulder. A similar cook for me went 32 hours. I always go at least that much for a long cook. What is leftover is just as good.

    Thanks Elizabeth
    This is my first bag of Maple Leaf that wasn't all small chips and dust.
    Bought it from a new supplier that doesn't kick the bags across the parking lot before putting them on the shelf :laugh:

    The guys at work are great for feedback, we are always feeding each other :)
