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!

    I used the the foil method a lot this past summer...  Usually using Triggs method.. or apple juice and brown sugar...    However..  I've had way better success smoking them without foil for about 4 hours or so..sauce them up for the last hour.   Way better flavor in my opinion... never had an issue with them not getting as tender as we wanted... Fall off the bone or just slightly before.

    what temp were u running????
    This is the same IME. I have done 225 275 and 350.. All came out great and the only real difference was time.
    Medium, and XL eggs in Galloway NJ.  Just outside of Atlantic City.

    I'm hijacking your thread, since I've been using all day as a guide!

    Made my own rub, instead of brown sugar, I sent turninado through the Vitamix to get a fine powder.

    Rubbed them, put them on the egg at 250 for 3 hours. A handful of Apple wood, and a couple hickory chunks.

    Pulled them of at 3 hours and placed in a large foil pan. Hit it with a bottle of apple beer, covered tightly.

    I'm going to let them go an hour in the pan, then I'll put them back on the rack, sauce, and cook another hour.
