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!

Butts Great, Ribs Okay

My Boston Butts always turn out great, but I could use some advice on the baby backs. I cook the Butts about 2 hours per pound, indirect, at 250 degrees, with some hickory. I rub the butts and ribs down with mustard then season with my favorite dry rub - I remove the membrane, then cook my baby backs with the same temp using the 3-1-1 method, but they seem a little tough to me. Are any of you guys using tenderizer or any other tricks to get them less tough? Don't get me wrong, they taste great, nice smoke flavor just a little chewier than I would like.
Also, here is a shot of this past weekend's boston butt after the pull.
