Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I am sooooooooo proud!

Would you believe I finally figured out how to cook a Boston Butt? It has taken me a year of tinkering, (I know, I'm a slow learner) but today I finally managed to cook a 6 lb butt without having to tend it! I purposely started it early this morning, because the last time I tried this I ended up losing waaaaaaaaaay too much sleep. Yesterday, I covered the meat with JJ's rub and wrapped and put in fridge. This morning, with all due respect to Elder Ward, I dumped the last of my bag of lump in humpty and lit one cube in the center. I didn't distribute or mess with placing the charcoal. I put 2 fire bricks in flat and placed the meat in the v rack over a drip pan placed over the bricks. Stuck the Polder in and set the slider open about 1/4 inch (on a medium) and just cracked Daisy. Threw a handful of chips in and closed the lid. I didn't look for about 30 minutes, but it was holding at 225. An hour later 250. It has stayed there all day!!! This has NEVER happened before. I have made this way too hard. I would play and adjust and fiddle with everything moveable, and end up getting up in the middle of the night to restart charcoal. Is it supposed to be this easy, or am I just lucky today? Have I finally arrived? Can I play with the big boys now?
