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

Here goes!!!

OK,[p]I've read, & read,& &read, & studied you guys & hoped & prayed, & worked very hard to earn the confidence of Humpty. His Eggness thinks I am ready for the big leap. It is 8:00 PM here in Oregon & I have vacuumed Humpty, I have seperated the charcoal into big, medium, & little. I have stocked the firebox. I have marinated the chunk-O-chest. I have followed Nature Boys directions to a "T". I have a 6.26 Lb. piece of beef & it is now or never. 15 Hours or so from now we will know if I have earned the right to call myself an overnite cooker. If there is a God he will smile on my feeble attempt & maybe, just maybe the folks who show up here tomarrow for their 4th of JUly Brisket will leave with a smile on their face. [p]Boy, I hope this works!!![p]Mañana

    Mañana Mike, well here's hoping all goes well. Here in Atlanta, it is raining. I started my Boston Butt about 4 hours ago and an hour into my temp dropped from 220 to 160 when the skies opened up. I made me a breathing raincap from a two pound coffee can with 16 1/2" holes drilled into it. I put that over my daisy wheel, opened the bottom vent back up and I now have it back up to 250 (and trying to get it back down to a steady 220 before I go to bed). It's still raining but it appears to be going fine now. Hope your cook proves as good.

    Mañana Mike,
    Come on Mike, give us an update. I am sure things are ok, but would like to hear about it. All you have to do, is have a look at the temp & tell us whats happening.
    The suspense is killing us.[p]Earl
