Getting ready to start my first picnic butt on XL BGE. It's 9.5lbs. Counting on 2 hours per pound. Rubbed it with freshly ground black pepper, kosher salt and light brown sugar. It's my third butt ever, and my first without using a complicated rub. (By complicated I just mean a lot of ingredients.)
I stuffed the egg with as much coal as I could fit. I'll keep this forum posted. Hopefully I will have a succesful smoke.
