Butt and Stew Review

Just thought I would take a moment to praise JJ and his rub and also Red for his Brunswick Stew. Made a batch of JJ's rub and put it on a medium size butt, which was then heavily "slathered" in Grey Poupon mustard. It went on the Egg just after dawn, when I returned about eight hour's later I found the dome temp. had gone up to 300 and the polder temp. was 203 with the alarm just howling. It was then taken off and aloud to sit for a couple hours. [p]With the leftover's Red's stew was made, this is undoubtedly some of the best BBQ and stew I've ever had. To top it all off "I made it".
Next time I think I will try cooking bread with it, have some sour dough starter that need to be used. Anyone have any experience with sour dough starter, need all the help I can get.[p]Mark

    Mark,[p]Use caution with breads in the Egg. They absorb smoke really easily and if you don't like smokey bread you may not like it(same with potatoes). I always avoid wood when doing pizza and try to get the Egg pretty clean to avoid any extra smoke, 10-13 min at 600 deg with the plate setter and pizza stone in the Egg does the job pretty well. Glad the butt came out - see, its easy to do and you can not hardly screw it up. Congrads!![p]Tim

    Dr. Chicken,[p]Why not post it here for all of us to enjoy? I would be very interested in reviewing it myself. (Please)

  • Mark, it's better than you had imagined I'll bet. You can post your certificate for your Masters Degree in Butt on your deck. KornGratulations.

  • Bob,
    It ain't "Q", but I've got no problem with that! I'll get it done this afternoon!
