Wow! This BGE is da BOMB on butts

My first one on the BGE. Very pleased. I've cooked plenty of them on a pit and a gasser but, hands down this was the best. Here are thei details: started this 10 pounder at 700 am with an internal meat temp of 44 degrees. Rubbed it with a light coating of worstshire sauce and then TX BBQ grand champion rub. Tied it up and put it in the egg with plate setter. Temp range during the cook was 235 to 310 degrees. I'd say the average was about 260 for the lengh of the cook. I took it to an internal temp of 200 degrees and it about 13 hours to get there. I never opened the lid during the entire time. This butt had nice bark and the meat was super moist. On other cooks using a smoker pit or a gasser I've always wrapped them in HD foil at about 160. Not this time! I will never foil wrap one again. You just don't need to do that on the BGE!!!

    Man how does that meat not fall off the grate?

    It actually stuck to the grate a little. I took a spatula and broke it loose before removing it. Any way to keep them from sticking?

    A well seasoned cast iron grill works for me

    Looks great!  Really nice finished color on that butt.  Nice work! 

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.
