Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

Help me nail my first butt!

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.
