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!

Pork Butt Perfection

JRWhiteeJRWhitee Posts: 2,668
Not that pork butt is difficult but todays Butt turned out excellent. I got the two 7 lbs Butts from Costco on Wednesday rubbed with Fat Boys Cajun Rub Thursday, wrapped and refrigerated until Friday morning. Started the Egg at 5:45 am this morning with some Hickory chunks clear smoke by 6:30 and Egg at 280 put on the Butts with some bushes baked beans in the drip pan. The beans were pulled after a couple hours and refrigerated. At 7:15 and Egg was at 310, closed the bottom vent a little and by 8:00 Egg was back at 275 where it stayed until 4:30.  Butts were at 205 and probe went in like Butter. This was some of my best Butt yet but I always say that....Then I heated up the bean and we feasted

    Looks great.  I have my first butt on the BGE now.  Almost ready to pull it off.  Applied some homemade rub prior to putting it on the BGE yesterday at 6:00 pm.  Cooked it low and slow (200-230).  I hope it comes out as nice as yours. I should have put my beans on like you do.  Oh well.  Next time.

    Those look outstanding. Are they bone-in or boneless? My Costco only sells boneless.

    Never seen a bone-in butt at our Costco, but, they still taste good!

    @JRWhitee, that looks like some great eats!

    They were boneless, thanks @jaydub.

    Nice looking cook. I did a 7# butt on the Egg myself at 225 and it took about 15 hours vs your 12. That beer is looking real good just about now too.<BR><BR>
