Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Thought was stabilized when went to bed @240...woke up 7 hrs later and dome temp was 290. 9 lb butt already at 175 not even 11 hrs into cook. Gonna have big impact on end result?

    Not at all. Somewhat higher temps will actually yield better results on butts and briskets. I usually cook shoulders at about 275-280 dome. On my last overnight (a butt), my dome was 350 when I woke up. I freaked out, but forum members talked me off the ledge, and it tasted great. You can go a little lower if you want to slow it down, but it may stall for several hours. Once it's done, you can FTC for at least five hours without a problem.

    You won't have any problem at all.  Pork butts are very forgiving.
