Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

First Overnight

edited June 2013 in EggHead Forum
So, I have either neighbors coming for dinner or a trip to a housewarming party for a coworker of SWHBO tomorrow. I definitely have in-laws coming into town midweek, so they can go to a kindergarten celebration for SWHMO Jr. on Thursday.

Added up, it leads me to having two 7.5 pound butts on the egg for my first overnight cook. One has Bayou Dirt (local rub), one has plain kosher salt and ground pepper.

Now, have I had more red wine image than is necessarily recommended for somebody trying something for the first time?
Undoubtedly.
Regardless, the egg has been sitting at 260 for about an hour. It is loaded with WGWW and a good bit of pecan and apple wood for smoke, and there is a drip pan filled with 2 beers, plenty of water, and Todd's Dirt.

I will update in the morning. For all those who have posted while I'm trying to get this straight, I apologize. Please see red wine levels, as noted above!

    As long as you don't run out of ice or bourbon you should be fine...

    Your butts are another matter...

    ;)
    You'll be fine...

    Like Hap said Bourbon is the key. I am betting with this being your first overnight there won't be much sleep in your future. :D All will be fine

    Pork butts are about as no brainer a low and slow as you can get...

    Enjoy the experience and rest assured they will be great. Better than anyone you're serving them to has had before.

    Thank you @hapster and @mattmam4969! Firsts of anything are stressful, but I'm lucky that this is a big gift from the Mrs, and since she's been very happy with the food of the egg so far I have a decent amount of rope.

    Temp at 260 when I went to bed last night, around 11:30. Temp at 280 when I got up at 6:30 this morning. Love the egg!

    Internal temp at 195, probe sliding like butter, little wiggle in the bone. Probably pull in around 30-40 minutes, and then FTC for 4 hours.
