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

Was it a pork chop or was it a steak?

Brined up some 3/4" pork loin chops yesterday for one hour and cooked them up like steaks (750+). These things were so juicing I thought I was eating a medium done steak, I'm talking fabulous. I even goofed up, my internal temp hit 165 when I was shooting for 145. The searing for 3 minutes a side held in all the brined solution. Next time I'll try 3 minutes, flip, and dwell for 5 minutes or so. [p]This brining concept is just as easy as marinating and I can still add in any seasonings I want to the brine for flavor. Up until yesterday I thought all pork chops were bland and dry, not anymore.[p]CC

    ColoradoCook,[p]I had a lot of trouble getting chops I liked off the Egg until CW set me straight with the high temp method.[p]Here is a link to a rub I really like for chops, if you are ever looking for something different. I tried the beef one on steaks too. It was good but not as good as the pork on chops.[p]Keep em Smokin,
