Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

New Egger in Pittsburgh

Hello all (or Y'inz as they say around here).  I recently got a Large BGE and have been cooking up a storm on it (pork butts, briskets, ribs, whole turkeys, swordfish, etc).  Although I haven't taken many pictures I have one from a cook a few weeks ago.  I did an over-under with a pork butt and packer brisket.  I am one of the new guys that got in on the grill extender and am looking forward to doing the over-under again without the packer hitting both grates.  I attached a picture of them right after it went on the grill.  I smoked it with a mixture of cherry and peach.

The next set of pictures are of a small beef rump roast (~1.75lb and 2" thick, a slice most likely).  I put a rub of ground espresso, brown sugar, tien tsin peppers and garlic.  It was smoked (225ish at the grate) for about an hour and a half until it reached 130 IT.  Let it stand for 20 minutes and sliced it thin.  I haven't done a rump roast yet and was impressed.

Looking forward to more adventures!

    @PGHegger I was fortunate to get one as a gift from family (out of state).  I haven't been to local dealers in Pittsburgh, there aren't too many, which is a bummer.

    @Tjcoley The first round didn't, but the second just might have to.  I need to mix up some slaw.

    I have a pork butt in the fridge now with a rub waiting to go on the egg tomorrow.  I'll update with pics and description when I am done.
