I'm still pretty much a newbie to the Green Egg and thought I would seek the advise of those with more experience.

I would like to cook pork this weekend. Any suggestions on a cut or recipe? Shoulder, butt, loin, etc, etc.

Thanks in advance for your input! Dave

    Tenderloins properly seasoned and cooked are phenomenal..

    I love pork steaks too. If you are unfamiliar with them they are steaks cut from the Butt. Just coat them with your favorite rub and slather them with your favorite BBQ sauce near the end.

    Great will grilled sweet taters

    For Barbecue it's butts(bi). Nothing else cooks up as wonderfully moist and delicious.

    In general, whole loins are hard to beat. They are extrmely versatile. Cut them into chops, roasts, etc. Use for pioneer/canadian bacon. Roulade. Endless possibilites.

    I did a butt last weekend for the first time and it was some of the best bbq I have ever had. The best part about it is that even after everyone went back for seconds there was still enough to eat leftovers during the week!

    Pork was made to be grilled or slow cooked, so it is hard to choose a favorite.

    If I could only do one more cook, it would be a tenderloin, using the Kentucky Bourbon Pork recipe in the cookbook section. I have been using it for about 15 years and it is still a favorite.

    That said, I also love a double cut, bone in, chop (just the loin section -- not the T-bone) that is cooked with most any rub and a little smoke.

    Be sure you have a good thermometer and do not overcook. Pork is safe at 137. I usually shoot for 140 minimum, recognizing that the temp will increase after I pull the meat.
