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!

I put two butts on last night (about 9:00pm, each about 2.5- 3 lbs from Sam's club). By morning, temp fell a bit to about 180* (coal only needed a little stiring). Its now 10:30 and they look great! Dome temp about 250* and internal temp is 172* and I'm planning to take them off when internal temp reaches 185*. [p]Any thoughts? I've heard many different thoughts about when a butt's done (from 170 - 200 degrees). Please advise![p]Smokey

    Smokey,
    195-200* will give you pulled pork. 185* will be more toward sliced.

    Smokey,
    Try twisting a fork in it. With practice you can feel by sliding the polder probe in and out. It should slide in and out very esily. If there is much resistance, or "grab, then get closer to 200. Each butt is different.
    Enjoy!!

    Smokey,
    A bagel would be grand. Those bloody mary's you mixed up at the fest looked mighty nice too.[p]Enjoy.
