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

Kroger had Boston Butt on sale last Sunday for $1.49 per pound.  That's a steal these days so I picked one up.  Saved it for today and threw her on at around 7 AM this morning.  Lit the egg up with some Applewood and Hickory at around 6:15 AM. 

In the meantime, we whipped up some homemade buttermilk biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast.  Also brewed a fresh pot of coffee.  If I was on death row, I think I would request Biscuits n' Gravy and Fried Pork Chops as my last meal.  :)

While the butt was smoking away, I went to Lowes and picked up some paint supplies.  Then came home and forgot about the BGE for several hours.  We then proceeded to move furniture around, spackle, sand, paint, etc without even checking on the egg.  It maintained an ideal temp of 235 deg f until it was ready.

Served with a nice creamy SC mustard based sauce.  I swear, that's the best thing about the egg -- your day doesn't have to be fixed around stoking, fighting and adjusting your smoker.  Just set it and forget it.  Hassle free and it produces the most delicious food ever.

The living room color turned out great too.  :)
