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

Just got my BGE as a birthday gift and I'm tickeled to death.
Fixin to smoke my first picnic (deboned shoulder) which was tied up with string.
The first thing I did was cut off the string, open it up and liberally put rub inside and out. Before I put on the BGE, should I re-tie it up or just kind of fold it up or let it lay out??

    Tie it back up. It will cook much better as a mass.
    I did one of these and it was pretty good, but not as good as the bone-in ones. The advantage is the flavor from your spices is deep inside![p]Have fun.

Pull off when internal is 185 or so. The boneless versons seem to have less tolerance of taking it to 200. Maybe because the looseness of the meat-in-a-sack allows more moisture loss.[p]It will be good! BTW welcome to the group!!
