Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

First pork butt is rolling (pictures as we go)!

At long last, the first pork butt cook is underway!  I'm at ~300 dome, slightly raised grid, two butts rubbed down with Bone Sucking pork rub, apple wood smoking away.  Butts went on about 9:30 and are currently around 130 internal.  Only interesting thing so far is that my apple wood chunks (about 5 slightly-smaller-than fist sized pieces) burned up in the first two hours and all my smoke turned clear.  No worries....pulled the grid, lifted out the PS and dumped on a few more chunks....back to nice white smoke!  I'll post more as the day goes on.  Planning to foil at 160.
