Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s almost Halloween and if you’re cooking on your EGG, you may end up with more people knocking on your door asking for pork chops than candy! In case you’re willing to share and want to please a crowd, we recommend warm Margherita Pizza, FGL’s Lemon Pepper Wings or our favorite, S’mores in a Cone!

If you missed the 17th Annual EGGtoberfest here are the highlights Click Here Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here butts are cooling off...

Good Morning.[p]I put about 14 pounds of butt on last night. This is my third pulled pork and is the first time I have seen these types of temperature fluctuations.[p]The dome temp has been "stable" from 200 to 240 degrees. Meat has been doing exactly as expected until the platue was reached.[p]About an hour ago the internal temp read 181. Dome spot on at 230. The internal temp dropped to 179 and is now 177.[p]Questions:
1. Is this important?
2. Could this be secondary to poulder placement?
3. I have plenty of time for the cook, but should I increase the dome temp counter?
4. Should I find something better to do with my mental energy? ie go get another cup of coffee and chill out :>
Thanks for any thoughts...[p]Jay
