Posted earlier to say that I just got my Big Green egg. Really, really loving this thing. This thing has not cooled down since the first fire was built on it.
So far I cooked burgers for lunch (really juicy and good). A couple of pork tenderloins for dinner (the smoke ring showing was impressive). Yesterday at about 07:00 PM (which was probably too early) I went ahead and put on the pork shoulder I bought in anticipation of getting the egg.
Got up at 0200, half expecting to find a charred mess and my egg is still holding steady at 250. The current meat temp is 176. About to go back to bed and I'll check this thing in the morning.
I am hopeful that as you guys have said that this boston butt will be a forgiving cook since I am still trying to learn what I am doing.
I attached a picture of the butt when I first put it on the egg,
Thanks for the inspirations guys!
P.S. Note the never to be used again propane/infrared and Weber grills in the background. Anybody wanna buy a couple old grills... cheap?
