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!

    2 small bunches fresh cilantro

    all put in hand blender chopper then rubbed on pork shoulders

    add in the egg magic, (which is happening right now) dome temp 225-250 going on 14hours

    then add a mixture of roughly the same, to taste after it is pulled.

    Looks scrumptious! I am a big fan of pork butt, may have to give this a try.

  • Sorry for all those that asked. Didn't get any finish pics. Had to run home at lunch break to pull them off the egg and didn't have time to get pics.

    They turned out wonderful just like they always do on the egg. Pulled at 195 and coolered for about 4 hours. Then pulled and served.
