Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

success at low temp!

All the egging I've done so far has been at temps north of 275 or so.  Decided to slow smoke a nice piece of salmon on Saturday and was surprised how easy it was to keep the egg at around 175 dome.  I let it climb to ~200, then added a cold platesetter and a cold slab of salmon, shut the vents almost entirely (just a trickle of air through the bottom and likewise with smoke on the top) and things dropped back down to about 150.  Over the next hour it climbed into the 170-190 range as I opened the egg to check on the salmon occasionally.  Anyway, salmon picked up an awesome smoky flavor and came out great.  Took it to an outdoor symphony concert and served on herbed crackers with cream cheese and capers.  Only a couple of crappy pictures...just to prove it happened.imageimageimage
