Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s almost Halloween and if you’re cooking on your EGG, you may end up with more people knocking on your door asking for pork chops than candy! In case you’re willing to share and want to please a crowd, we recommend warm Margherita Pizza, FGL’s Lemon Pepper Wings or our favorite, S’mores in a Cone!


If you missed the 17th Annual EGGtoberfest here are the highlights Click Here Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Pork Shoulder Injection

First - a quick story. Lately, my neighbors have gotten into the habit of stopping over as soon as they hear the cover come off the Egg or smell any food on it. Gotta love the Egg!

Anyways, after my neighbor stopped by yesterday from the scenario above I agreed to make a pork shoulder on Sunday to share. 

Thinking of using Big Bob Gibson's injection w/ Dizzy Dust. Big bob gibson's injection recipe below - have never tried it. What do you all inject with (if you do)?

3/4 cup apple juice
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup kosher salt, finely ground
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce

    I used Myron Mixon's Hog Injection from his Book "Smokin with Myron Mixon"
    Hog Injection
    4 Quarts Apple Juice
    1 Quart Distilled White Vinegar
    5 Pounds Sugar
    2 Cups Salt
    1 Cup Monosodium Glutamate such as Ac'cent.

    In a large stockpot, combine the apple juice and vinegar over medium heat. Stirring continuously, pour in sugar, salt and monosodium glutamate. Stir until seasonings ar completely dissolved. Do not boil. Remove from eat. If reserving for later use, let the liquid cool; then pour it into a large bottle or container. Store refrigerated for up to 1 year.
