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

My First Overnight Smoke on the EGG for July 4th

Smoked two pork shoulders and one boston butt. All weighing in around 22lbs. Rubbed them down with a brown sugar/yellow mustard mix and sprinked them with my dry rub. I tried to keep the dome temp stable @ 250 for 15 hours. Fell asleep for 6 hours and woke up to 180 degrees. I believe the eyes on the daisy wheel were closed too much.

Outcome: They came out great for pulling as I took them off the egg at an internal temp of 190. Wrapped them up in foil and did the 2.5 hour rest in the cooler. They just melted!!

Here are some pics. Any pointers for next time, please share. I believe I did a good job but I'm sure I can do better.
