This is day two of the trifecta marathon. My butt has been on the grill since 8 last night. I went after a very low, very slow cook and got it. I went to bed 'round
midnight after watching the Williams sisters finish off Davenport and her partner in the Australian Open doubles finals. The egg was holding about 225. When I
got up this morning the dome was down to 200* and the butt was about 150*. It is now late morning and I have nudged the egg's temps up a bit, shooting for
225*. The butt just got to 160*. I am actually happy with these low temps. I have been trying for months to figure out how to hold the egg below 225* and I finally got it.
I'm cooking a 7-8 pount butt and I'm in no hurry.[p]Later today I'm prepping the ribs with Cat's sauce and heading back to the Amish market for those potato rolls and whatever else looks good. I'll probaby put
the ribs on tonight, then go play midnight volleyball. [p]BTW, I wonder if the Sports Illustrated jinx still works. If so, look for the Giants to lose. They were on this week's cover. [p]Char buddy
