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

First Cook Begins

<p />Well, here's the start of my first cook on my new BGE. I first bought 2 boston butts, but later decided to freeze one of them and do a whole shoulder instead. So, In the above pic I have a 9lb boston butt and a 10lb whole shoulder rubbed in Elder Ward's rub and awaiting the BGE. They are in the V rack and the BGE was stabilized at 250 dome, and those big hunks of pork went on the Egg at 11:00 am. I'm planning on finishing them at 300* dome after they reach 175 degrees. I'm thinking about 3 am they should be ready to turn up and hopefully finish at 6 am. After they are finished, I'm putting on 6 racks of St. Louis style ribs and hopefully have everything ready about noonish.
Man, even after only being on the Egg for an hour, the smells coming from Humpty is amazing. I'm a homebrewer also, and have plenty of good, hoppy American Pale Ale on tap, so a good time should be had by all. I'll post some finished pictures hopefully sometime tomorrow. In the mean time, If I run into problems, its good to know all you guys are around the computer today for help. I'll be monitoring the forum as well.[p]Happy 4th everyone,
