Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you had a great Labor Day and are excited for the start of the NFL this week. If you’re not a sports fan, you can celebrate National Breakfast Month all September and National Cheese Pizza Day on September 5. We can’t wait to share some awesome fall recipes with you all! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Making the best of an extremely wet day - aka moving the roast to the oven.

So, with yesterday's success on the spatchcock chicken I decided to brave a low and slow with a nice beef roast I had in the freezer. 

Fired up the grill to 250 at 6:30 this morning and put the roast on (indirect with drip pan).  Temp was stabilized quite nicely so the family headed to church.  About halfway through the service the weather decided to change form chance of showers to monsoon. 

When I got home the dome temp was only reading 100 and showed no sign of coming back to life so I pulled the roast and put it in the oven. 

Had recently purchased the Maverick 2 wire thermometer so decided to hook that up in the stove.  Roast is at 176 IT right now.  Going for pulled beef so I'm shooting for 210 or so.  Should be a bit longer at this rate.

Guess we'll go for the low and slow on the egg another day.  Will have to check the weather closer next time.
