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!

    Boogie,
    I agree with Keithww. If your temp is steady, go to bed. I remember my first butt, I stayed up all night watching the temp gague. I was so excited. Now after many butts, I stabilize the temp and go to sleep. Enjoy your pulled pork. I'm sure it will be delicious.

    I agree, too. If you really want some major piece of mind, get a DigiQ II. Although I believe the Egg will hold the temp without it, the DigiQ let's you "set it and forget it."

    I build a fire, set the DQ for 225, close the lid and go away. Hasn't failed me yet.
