Hi all,

I need a litte help planing a BBQ party.
I have a BGE L and a Weber Q300 (gas).

I need to cook 2 x butt + 1 x brisket flat, chicken and ribs???

We are going to eat at 7pm on saturday (25/8).

The plan:
2 x butt on friday the 24/8 at 1pm - allow for 20 hours to cook, done around 12am.
Brisket flat on Saturday at around 1pm - alow for 5 hours cook, done around 6pm (
Then i am counting on 2 spatchcooked chickens the last hour.

I am cooking brisket at 275f (grate), this is to hot for ribs???

On the weber i am planing: ABTs (a good guide?), BBQ Beans, Burger patios.
Oven: Burger buns, sweet potatoes.
Fryer: Pommes!

Mixed salad
Corn? (on the weber)
BBQ Sauces

Red Wine

What do you think? Something i need to adjust?

Griller from Denmark, Europe (BigGreenEgg Large, Weber Q300, Weber Gold 57cm)


  • I am not an expert! But I see the eating time, just no directions!

    275 for ribs would be fine, I like to spray mine with apple juice and apple cider vinegar (50/50).

    I would guess your butts will be done sooner than 20 hours- all depends on temp.

    Good luck and Happy Birthday!

    Happy B'day-Overall plan looks like it will work just fine however, not knowing the size of your brisket flat, I would start that earlier in the day.  You can hold it for a few hours and better to be finished early than late.  Also you may want to recheck your math for the butts, 1 PM start and 20 hours will mean finished around 9 AM Sat.  Check out "turbo butt" as you can save quite a bit of time with that process.  FWIW-
  • Wahoo, that looks like my B-day bash coming up on Saturday(although b-day is tomorrow)
