Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Newb here- looking to do 1st slow cook

Hi all.  The wife got me a BGE for Christmas and I've used it 6-7 times so far and have loved it!  

So far I've cooked pork (tenderloins and chops) and chicken (breast and halves) only... using direct heat.  I decided to get the wireless thermometer, which arrived earlier this week.

Here's my setup:
  • Large BGE
  • Electric starter
  • Fogo premium hardwood lump charcoal
  • Maverick ET732 wireless thermometer
  • GBE Plate Setter
I'd like to try my first slow cook.  Any advice?  I assume I should get a Boston Butt.  Here are the rubs that I have:
  • Dizzy Pig- Dizzy Dust
  • Chef Troy's Spice Mix- oregano, garlic, black peppr
  • 3 Beer BBQ Rub
I'd like to have this ready for lunch tomorrow (before my Panthers take on the 49ers).  

I know there's a plethora of recipes on the board, but being that it's my first time, any advice to a newbie would be much appreciated!
