We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers
for a backyard grill out, some brats
before a baseball game or searing a steak
for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

First Butt Question - Smoke chips
Doing my first butt today and first real cook on a LBGE. I have Western brand Apple and Miesquite chips. I am thinking of using just the apple chips today. Here are my questions for the eggsperts:
1). For a 8lbs butt how many chips would you use to give it enough smoke flavor but not too much?
2). Given my two types (Apple and Mesquite) would you recommend just the apple or mixing the two?
3). Do you recommend having the smoke chips on the first part of the cook only (e.g. the first few hours)?
