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

Coffee rub, and turkey breast. Oh my God!

Since we went to my sisters place yesterday, we had no leftovers. So, I snagged an 8lb turkey breast, brined it, applied Mickeys coffee rub, and cooked indirect at 350-375 for just over two hours. It reached 170 quicker than I expected, but I pulled it, loosely covered it with foil and let it rest for about 30 min.

I cut into it, said several creative curse words, danced around a bit and looked around for someone to high five. Possibly the best thing I've made ...ever.

Brining is unbelievably effective. I can't believe I've looked past something so easy for so long. The coffee rub is also ridiculously good. Tough to describe, but delicious.

Nolaegghead, thanks for your brine recipe. Mickey...whoever you are, your rub is bananas.

What a meal!
