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

Pork picnic roast is reaching temps really fast (11lbs

I bought an 11lb pork shoulder to smoke this weekend.  Skin on, which I removed, and trimmed of the bad fat and silver skin.  Injected with a recipe from Big Bob Gibson and put on the Egg at 4:25am in Missouri.  
6 hours later I'm at 178 internal temp.  I'm using a freshly checked for calibration Maverick which has had the grate temp at 250-280 the entire time.  Haven't opened the egg to check temps with the thermapen.  It stalled for a while at 157 or so, even dropped in temp, but now is steadily on the rise.  
This seems like a quick cook.  Given my recent post of wanting to compete next year in a BBQ contest, I'm curious why it's going so fast? Or maybe I'm underestimating my next ~30 degrees?
