Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

How much sulfur smell is too much - pork butt?

I have the egg lit and ready to go.  I was prepping two pork butts with sell by dates of tomorrow to throw on the egg tonight.  Holy sulfur smell.  I opened each pork butt and the smell was room clearing.  While trying to not breathe through my nose I rinsed each butt thoroughly, trimmed the fat off, and rinsed them again.  The sulfur smell is still very strong.  They have been sitting out for thirty minutes.  I am tempted to shut the egg down and return the meat.  

How much sulfur smell is too much?  I don't want to taste sulfur when the butts are done tomorrow.  I also think I need to go stand over the daisy wheel and inhale some smoke to get the lingering sulfur smell of out of nose.  Yuck.
