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

overcooking a butt?

How long can I leave my 8-pound butt in the heated egg (225-250) after it has reached 205 degrees? The butt is at 197 right now, and I expect it will reach 205 within an hour or so, but we are not planning to eat for about six hours. I know I can wrap the meat and put it in a cooler for about three hours (I've done it before), but how long can it stay in the egg without drying out?[p]
