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!

Apricot Pork Loin

Cut a 9.5 pound loin in half and then "jelly rolled" that out flat. Seasoned inside and out with Dizzy Dust and loaded with apricot preserves as well as covering in bacon. Cooked indirect on raised grid at 350 dome for about 1.5 hours with some apple wood chips for flavor. Very good cook but little disappointed that almost all the sweet was cooked out and liquified not leaving alot of apricot taste but still VERY juicy and would try again in the future.

    Next time --

    Use a [pre-cooked] mixture of wide rice and rice as a base, stiffened a bit with an egg. Put a few slices of pre-cooked bacon inside the roast... than line the guts with fresh or rehydrated apricots, topped with apricot preserves.

    Roll, tie off and be sure to tie the ends off tight... It will hold a bit more of your apricot... the rice/egg help as a binder, and absorb some of the "juice."

    Good luck!
