Update on my First BGE COOK

Well, all is well in eggland. I was alarmed after I checked the butt and shoulder at 7 hours and the internal temp was 160 degrees, but I just checked again at the 12.5 hour mark, the dome is still 250 degree's and the internal is at 165. What a bark, I had to try a sliver and man, what flavor and moistness. I think I'm going to get a couple hours sleep and get up at 3 am and up the temp to about 300 to finish it off hopefully about 5 or 6 am. Then on to the ribs. I can't believe I still have about half a load of lump in the egg at this point. This is the way BBQ'ing was meant to be. I'll post pics of the finished product hopefully tomorrow. So, I'll raise my glass of Pale Ale to all fellow eggers and wish everyone a very happy and safe 4th of July. [p]John

    JohnL, way to go...all is well in eggland at your domain. Let us know the finals..:-)

  • JohnL, Alright--okay--sounds like you are off to a great start. A little piece of advice--don't crack the lid too often, It allows too much of that great smell into the air and Mother-in-laws show up all of a sudden, with no warning, with a plate in there hand and a lustful hungar in their eyes. Can't wait to see the pictures.
