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

Saturday Results - First Butt with pics

With thanks to @ChalieTuna and @Mickey - I attempted my first pork butt this weekend.  The results were good with some lessons learned as well.  I have a new appreciation for the Thermapen.  All of the buy suggestions on this site for that tool are right on.  I think the next time I try this I will increase the amount of rub and seek to be more patient before going to the foil cook.  Also, I need heavy duty aluminum foil.

Here are the results

The pork, the sides (layered salad and slaw from a Dillard House Recipe) and finally the plated - sorry photo wasn't so great and I was ready to eat.

The result was the family loved it - my two little girls used every excuse possible to say "pork Butt" never just pork.

I found a mustard sauce and vinegar sauce that I made Friday night and like the Mustard best - a simple mix from About.com.
