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!

First post, saying hello with a pork butt

I am excited to say hello and join a community of folks who enjoy the process and results which come from firing up the Egg.  I picked up my Egg a few months ago and have been a bit slow to sign up for an account, but wanted to post a picture from my first cook around the fourth of July when I offered (either with great bravery or stupidity) to home my wife's family of 25 for a cookout.  After 15 hours at a dome temp of 250 24 lbs of pork butt emerged from The Egg at a temp just over 200 degrees with a solid bark.  FYI, I used Chris Schlesinger's rub recipe with the addition of a bit more salt. I learned you don't have to be lucky or good, just get an Egg.  Anyway, thanks for all of the tips I've gathered so far, and I look forward to learning more from those who can't get that darn smoke smell out of their hair.

    Nice, pulled pork is my go-to cook for large crowds. I love that you can finish it early and FTC until everyone arrives and is ready to eat.

  • Thanks for the support and warm welcome

    @Mickey, I am a Massachusetts Egghead.

    @Dougbacker, you are absolutely correct, I picked up my LBGE used from a guy who was unloading it in Maine.  While I understand I am missing out on the warranty, I did appreciate the fair price he offered ($500 for the egg, nest, cover, and shelves.)
