Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
Get ready to turn up the heat as we dive into August. While there are only a few weeks left to perfect those tailgate recipes, summer isn’t over yet! Two things we’ll be making this month are Chile Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops and Bell Pepper Kabobs. Then, relax after a cookout with a cool dessert cooked on your EGG - Ice Cream Sandwiches! You can mix and match your favorite cookie flavors with ice cream flavors. Simple, yet delicious!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

    Throw that sucker on the EGG. You will be OK. Get the temp stabilized and keep an eye on it. You may have to semi baby sit it by not letting the dome temp to drop..

    KK, Is that one chunk of meat, or total package weight? I ask because I've never seen a 16 pound butt, but I am used to "2-packs" from Sam's; total weight 14 to 16 pounds. If what you have is the latter, no problem.

    KK, Bob has made a good point.....I have never seen a butt that big but thats not to say you can`t get one.
    A chunk of pork to be pulled of that weight would take you 32 hours at least to cook.....[p]Cut her in half and your looking at 16 to 17 or so hours.....[p]Mop!
