Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

mini low/slow setup with a Party Q

The wife and I went on our yearly fly-fishing trip last week and took along the mini.  I’ve used my homemade raised/indirect setup on several occasions for raised cooks but never a low/slow indirect and was skeptical on how it would work.  I hand selected my royal oak and packed it in up to the top of the fire ring along with 24 hour whiskey/water soaked pecan, cherry and hickory chips/chinks.  I used Bobby Flay’s pork rub four hours before the cook.  <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />


Lit the lump and hooked up the PartyQ (with fresh batteries) and set it for 230.  You’ll notice on the one pic where the Q is registering only 74 degrees.  On my larger eggs I like to get the heat close to temp before installing the Party Q.  I decided on the mini I wasn’t going to ever let the lump get ahead of me as I wasn’t sure how long it would take to get the temp back down if I had a high overshoot which is very easy to do with a mini.  The highest I ever witnessed it getting was 241 and that didn’t last long.


The boneless pork butt was  3.6 pounds and I pulled it when the maverick indicated an internal temp of 195 after approximately 12 hours in the egg.  Let it set for a couple hours double foil wrapped and wrapped with a large beach towel. 

The wife thinks I’m a BBQ god!  I’m just glad I didn’t screw up our lunch.

When in doubt add more pepper.
