Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

BBQ Eggrolls

We tried a BBQ joint called the Rib Shak while on Spring break in Perdido Key.  The BBQ was not bad but they had a pretty cool appetizer - a BBQ eggroll.  Simply pork, bbq sauce, and mozzarella.  It seemed like a weird idea but we both liked it.

I tried making my own up this weekend.  First I smoked two pork butts.

Injection:  Chris Lilly's recipe
Rub:  Mixed two together (Wild Willies #1 from Smoke and Spice book and Melissa Cookston's basic rub)
Wood:  Cherry chunks and hickory chips
Cooked at 250f, one came off at about 12 hours, the other 14.  Rested in foil in cooler.

Nice bark, good flavor, tender and juicy.

After several versions, the one that was closest to the ones we had at Rib Shak were chopped pork, Blues Hog sauce, Drapers AP rub, and the mozzarella.

Deep fry at 350f - little known fact....Thermapens work indoors ;)

They were crispy and good.

We did several other versions and I will play with this some more.  I could see doing a Southwestern version and something with brisket.
