I am cooking some Butts for my Moms birthday tomorrow. I have never cooked a butt on the egg before but I have been doing a lot of reading and feel pretty confident. I ordered the AR last week and was not expecting it till Monday, but low an behold, it showed up on the door step today! Saturday! Thats service! Now since I have the AR and have never used one of those before, I thought I would double down on new adventures and break in the rig as well.
The reason for this post is to make sure I have the rig set up properly:
I have the round ceramic stone on the lowest level of the AR and no spider. I then placed the BGE grid on top of the AR. I read the instructions from Tom but want to make sure I got it right, it seems pretty high in the dome.
Does that sound right?
Im smoking two butts about 8 pounds each, a little dizzy pig and thats it. I plan on putting the butts on tonight @250
dome and will have my iGrill monitoring grill level temp and internal temp of one of the butts. I am checking my thermo as I right this. Cleaned the egg out and filled it to the top of the fire ring with fresh lump.
Wish me luck!
