I cooked up a Boston Butt two nights ago, left it unpulled and put it in the fridge overnight. Then I took it out and took it to a party today. I followed the good Doctor Spin's advice and cut off fist chunks, put them in ziplock bags and microwaved for a few minutes at low power. [p]I've never had pork sandwiches that good before and nobody else at the party could remember anything like it either. [p]I'm already planning another Butt just for the 'mediate family next week.[p]I also did pizzas for guests a few nights ago and for the second time our guests decided on the spot that our egg looked like a minature reactor. Polders on the front and smoke coming out of the top gave it that appearance, I guess. Anyway, they made fun of it until they got a taste of what the egg could do, then they became more respectful. [p]Any other newbies getting this reaction from friends or family?

    char buddy ,[p] Guess I've had my BGE too long to be called a "newbie". However, I still try new things all the time. In fact, just about everyone on this forum probably still has friends that come over to try a new "Eggsperiment" and can't believe how well the BGE worked in preparing it. Every time I make something new or different for my friends, they always have that reaction -- especially if he food is something they don't normally associate with "grilling". (You want to put *dough* in that thing?)[p] Yesterday I helped out at a volleyball tournament. Brought my small BGE along and filled it up with bratwurst. There were a lot of very curious people watching me lug the little sucker across the parking lot . . .[p]MikeO

    MikeO, Someday I will read in the papers where the "bomb squad" relieved some poor BGE owner of a small or mini and blew it up in a bunker!! LOL
