65 # Butt



  • So jealous of you Stoker guys, I just can't justify the cost for 8-9 cooks a year. If I'm only cooking one or two pieces of meat I can handle it.
    If you don't have to go high tech, (and I don't have to), but you want the peace of mind that all is fine on the overnight cook temperature, I would recommend the Auber controller.  After reading all the NakedWhiz controller reivews, I though it looked like the most value for least money, and I have been very pleased with it.  I think it was about $155 or $160 with shipping.  It is nothing fancy, no wifi, but easy to use and very precise.  It does not have a "ramp" mode, so you do unplug it if you open the lid (which I try not to do anyway), but when you plug it back in it saves and goes back to last setting so you don't have to reset.  I found the price reasonable in exchange for a peaceful nights sleep--this is particularly true when I am cooking for some group function--did a couple's wedding shower recently, so needed to have everything on schedule.

    I find the ramp mode useless anyway. I just pull my blower from the Egg and close the lower vent. Then pull and rotate butts or whatever I need to so. Close up the Egg and wait to stabilize and then put the blower back. One thing I like about the Stoker is it has 6 ports and I can expand. I had 3 temp probes, grate temp and a fan running the last two days. Very helpful. Guys - I have 8 tins of pulled porked in the fridge. Tasted great. Anyway, we serve tomorrow night and I was planning to reheat in the oven. Should I just as water to each pan and reheat covered to prevent drying out? Thanks.

  • I disappointed. I clicked on this thread wanting to see a 65# butt ;)
