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 that beer 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!

First overnight butt

9lb pork shoulder tied up. I rubbed it down with mustard, salt and pepper, onion, garlic and cumin powder. Tried to keep the egg at 250 - 275 but the egg wanted to stay at 300. It cooked for 10 hours. Wrapped it in tin foil and threw it in a cooler. Need to control the temp a bit better next time. I'm asking for a guru for Xmas. Still tasted great.

  • Good looking grub. Just a question, the pic of the egg, are those the vent settings you ran with? My Lbge at 250 is shut a lot more than that

    Try Fast Butt at 325-350...wrap in foil at the 160 internal temp...cook until it reaches 190-200 the butt juice for when you pull the will be done in 5 hours or less...deeelicious...
  • @MrCookingNurse-  That picture was actually taken as I was closing down the egg. The temp reads right at 350. I closed it down much more than what the picture shows. This was my first attempt cooking a butt. @vidalia- thanks for the advice.

    I agree with mr cookingnurse. On my large the daisy is barely open and the bottom vent is about half closed.

    I bought a party q as the pressure was killing me. :-) never looked back since.
    When in doubt add more pepper.
