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!

stall question

at approximately what temp does the stall occur.  My butts stalled at 154 for at least 2 hours this morning, now i'm approaching 180.  Is there another stall coming?

    Stall usually around 160*F and lasts (in my experience) for much longer than two hours-but each hunk has its own characteristics-and yes, I have seen another stall around 180 for a couple of hours, but not in all cases.  I run with around 250*F(+/-) on the dome as you can power through a stall with a high enough cook temp-search "turbo butts".

  • thank you, kind sir.  it may have been more than 2 hours at 154...was that temp when I awoke and stayed that way for a good while.  I plan to power through if a second stall emerges...still have chicken to cook, followed by hot dogs.

     This is what most eggheads refer to as the plateau. They do occur at different temps. I have known some who have reported seeing two diff plateaus during one cook. Enjoy your turbo butts. I cooked three 8 pounders a few weeks ago, in 6 hours. They were very good!
