I used all EKG in my MO SMaSH recipe with one 60 minute addition and then the rest from 20 minutes forward. The BU/GU balance was great even with a good amount of hops. I did hop burst my caramel ale which also has the BU/GU balance desired.
Basically don't fear hop bursting. Read up on the method and try a recipe (or several) and see how you like it. It def. has a place in brewing.
Yea I will try this hop schedule see what happens.
