Longtime lurker, first time poster here. I have a medium Egg that I have done overnight cooks on before, but I have a unique problem that my previous searches have not produced any answers. I volunteered to cook a butt for New Years Eve, my problem is that I work the day before (24 hr shift) so I won't get off work until Sat morning. So cooking Fri night is out. My plan is to do the cook Wed night-Thurs afternoon/evening. So my questions are:
Has anyone ever done a partial cook? Where I would do some of the cook Thurs morn-Thurs afternoon, then take it off, wrap in hdaf, let it cool, put in fridge, then put it back on the egg Sat morn and finish the cook and be ready to eat Sat eve?
Should I just stick to my plan and do the whole cook Wed-Thurs, wrap in hdaf, keep whole, then warm it up in the oven Sat afternoon, then pull it?
Thanks for your help.
