Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Put 2 Boston butts on the XL 22.44 lbs.......rubbed with Richard's Indian River Rainbow Pepper ( A delicately balanced mixture of Peppers: Black, White, Brazilian Red, Green, Szechuan, Coriander & Crushed Red Pepper) and Death by Garlic....On the Egg 250* dome at 9:30 pm tuesday.Smoked with hickory wood chunks & the dripping pan filled with water


Pulled them out wednesday, when the internal temp. reached 195* , around 2:30 pm, a 17 hours cook during which the XL kept a perfectly steady temp.


Let them rest for a while & then pulled, they were so tender, reserved one for later & proceeded to add the pibil ingredients to this one


Ingredients for the pibil marinade: Achiote paste, garlic, chopped, orange & lemon juice, white wine vinegar,mezcal (without the worm :P ), bay leaves, cumin, thyme, fresh oregano from the garden, S & P. The addition of citrics gives the marinade a sweet & acidic taste.


Added the marinade to the meat, wrapped in banana leaves & reserved



Had a glorious sunset waiting for the guests


Kept the egg just warm, added some more lump & put the meat back on at around 8:00 pm


Just 1 hour, was enough to add to the already smoked flavour of the meat, the aroma of the banana leaves.It was something else...DE-LI-CIOUS


Made tortas with white bread, mustard, mayonnaise, refried beans, pickled red onions, olives, habaneros & potato salad.

Dessert, for my health conscious friends?? What else but dark chocolate covered bacon.... :woohoo: :laugh:


By that time it was raining quite strong so we took cover under the large palapa. Some of you might recognize Tony "The Money" tequila glass in hand, a regular at my parties, bringing in the precious fuel to keep us going, with Chuy's help.. :laugh:


A pretty satisfied group I thought.... ;)
