It’s almost Halloween and if you’re cooking on your EGG, you may end up with more people knocking on your door asking for pork chops than candy! In case you’re willing to share and want to please a crowd, we recommend warm Margherita Pizza, FGL’s Lemon Pepper Wings or our favorite, S’mores in a Cone!

If you missed the 17th Annual EGGtoberfest here are the highlights Click Here Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Okay folks, tonight will be my first overnight cook: a 7.5 lb butt. Target chow time is 6:00 pm CST tomorrow. Any assistance in helping me nail this butt is appreciated. Current plan: -I'm thinking about going 275 dome (no grid thermo yet) and planning on 1.5 hours per pound. -At that temp, if I put it on at 3:00 am, that should give me plenty of time to spare if I run into trouble. If I finish early,I can just foil and cooler it. Logical? -As advertised in other threads, mustard, DP, and not planning on injecting. Should I? Any thoughts, tips, guidance, and/or off color jokes are appreciated. I'll post pics along the way so you can share in the glory that you helped create.
