Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Pork Belly

Want to make some bacon, but can only find frozen pork belly. Will that suffice?

    Yep. Leave it in the cryovac in your fridge for a day or two. They freeze them because short shelf life.

    I've read to get fresh, when you can.  Obvious reasons.  But I've seen both on the interwebs.
