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!

Reading a thread one time recently it was stated slow cook wasn't for
"A" types.Amen!!First Butt was taken off fire after 24hrs at 196,very good but 200 seemed far off.The dome started high at 300 but got it back to 250 after couple of hours.Set up was plate setter,v-rack in foil pan.Was it the v-rack someway causing the extra long cook?(Butt weighed about six pounds)

    V-rack had nothing to do with it. Each piece of meat is different. I've had a 10lb butt take exactly 18 hours to get to 200º and I've had a 5.5lb take 24 to get to 200º...go figure.
    Part of the "allure of the Egg" is it gives you a chance to sit back and relax. Most Type A people obsess about making the temp EXACTLY 225º and maintaining it the entire time.
