We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

First Butt....not perfect.....thoughts on what I did wrong

Alright guys....cooked my first butt on Sat....it was good but wasn't as juicy as I thought it should have been. 

Here is what I did...

-Took the butt out of the freezer on Monday
-Friday night put the rub on and put it back into fridge
-Sat morning got the egg dialed in at 240 and put the butt on. (Before putting the butt on I injected it with apple juice and apple code vinegar)
-After 15 hrs of cooking it reached an internal temp of 195.  Due to the time we dug into right away.  The pork was good but it was a little dry and it didn't just fall apart like it should.

I think I know where I went wrong but I wanted to get everyones input here.
