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!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

Any Ideas?

...about these guys? Just put on a small butt to cook via the quick method, and noticed these emerging from a potted fern on the patio. Something about their shape just makes me happy. :whistle: Good crop of chilis, too.

Good Sunday, All.

    What is the fast method for butts?

    Alot of folks are going 350-375deg in order to speed up the process. Little if any difference is detectable most times, expecially if you cook at 250 for the first 60-90min with wood chunks then bump it up.

    Pls excuse the hijack LR. The shrooms look cool. The one close up shot looks like you cool pull up a chair and enjoy the shade.

    A couple of hours indirect at 200-250 with very heavy smoke (I used apple and pecan today). Then double wrap in hd foil and back on indirect, but at 300-350 or higher. I can't tell the difference, but it sure cuts several hours off the process.

    I know it's blasphemy, but a couple of weeks ago I ran out of time doing one for work. After about 5 total hours of smoke/wrap time, I dumped everything in the crock pot and went to bed. Folks at work went nuts.

    No apologies necessary. I just told Baja basically the same thing.

    This one is an 8# boston butt 400° start to finish, indirect about 6.5 hours.

    I used a foil tent at towards the end of the cook to prevent the bark from overdeveloping. As to if or when to tent is a judgment call.

    For what its worth I googled edible mushrooms and clicked "images" and found nothing that looked similar. Then I googled poisonous mushrooms and immediately found one that looked like these and the description fits your habitat.
    When in doubt--don't.

    Thanks, Steve. I wouldn't eat, but think I'll remove them.

    Interesting peppers. What kind are they?

    I've always been told that when you don't know the specie the more pure white were always the most probable to be poisonous.

    AC not withstanding.....I'll gladly pass the torch. Don't miss it at all. But, you are just a pup....and a strong one, at that.

    Knock 'em dead, My Friend.
