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!

I was gonna do a low and slow tonight.. but not sure now... opinions welcome:)

dinner has been moved back to 5ish tomorrow.

prepped the egg today and was gonna throw a 10lbish shoulder on tonight and go for a 12-14hr cook... that still only puts it at about noon-2pm range at the latest I think... my shoulders have been finishing quicker than normal as of late at a grate temp of 250ish...

after seeing cazzy post I am wondering if I should just get up early which isn't early for me anymore and throw it on at 300 and see where that gets me..  I could probably still get a solid 8-9hours out of it tomorrow on the egg..

I do need it done by 4pm at least because I am going to cook some salmon as well.


so- low and slow or kinda turbo ?

    Low and slow for best product in my opinion. I love me some turbo butt when I have to do it, but low and slow is still best as far as I'm concerned.

    L&S....but I don't think we all are married to the 225-250F range.  A little increase to 275-280F reduces the cook time, with the benefits of l&s, just sayin, IMHO..Just enjoy cooking by food temp.

  • I'd agree with low and slow.  I'd add if you get a Cyber Q, Stoker, or other temp control device, you can prep the night before and then go back to bed after you get your cook going.  The first few times I worried about all the things one would worry about but after many cooks, back to bed for me.
