Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

Mid Week Low & Slow

hapsterhapster Posts: 7,204
Heading up to NW PA for a golf putting with all the guys from my wife's side of the family. Leaving early Friday morning.
I've gotten requests to bring my egg LOL. Not gonna happen. Going to do the next best thing.

Going in a little while to pick up 3 bone in butts. Going with Bad Byron's and oak. Cooking them tomorrow evening into Thursday morning, pulling them, and putting them into the 2gal zip lock bags for traveling. Going to get some simple hamburger rolls as well.

Can't wait... BBQ, big fish fry of lake perch, golf, cigars, bourbon. Weather looks great, sunny in the low 70's with lows in the 50's.

    to me the next best thing would be a 2nd smaller egg to travel with.  I guess your plan works too.

    Since I don't have a travel egg at this point; though I may convince the cousins to get one for camp...

    Here are some pics of the cook beginnings. Currently the grid is 252 on the Mav and the oak smoke smells wonderful.

    First test of a low and slow for the new lump.

    Loaded and lit... About 21lbs before trimming and smoking

    Thanks... pouring rain, so no sticks yet. And it was kind of busy night so I didn't even get a chance to sip anything either ( not that it'll help, my liver will likely take a beating this weekend)

    I think I am into an extended or 2nd stall currently, no worries though

    Looks like a great cook in progress.  Jealous of your weekend - sounds like a lot of fun.  Enjoy it!

  • Man!  That looks good. That is some serious action for a mid-weeker.  Enjoy the weekend!
  • hapsterhapster Posts: 7,204
    Thanks everyone...

    Going to pull them in a little while after about 4 hours of FTO... (in the oven, not turned on)

    Trying something new... going to mix in some finely chopped Vidalia onions, maybe just do half with and half without. Sauce is a 50/50 mix of Famous Dave's Rich & Sassy and Devil's Spit.
