It's been a little over one year since I've had my BGE. I'm sure lots of you have noticed that I make posts from time to time with questions and responses.
You would think that since I've been around now for over a year that I wouldn't have to ask this question [p]First of all, beleive it or not I have not done a pulled pork or Boston Butt on the egg yet and I cook 3-5 times a week on my egg.[p]So I figured it's about time I try it. From time to time I have seen and read post about how and how long to slow cook a butt. But for the most part I kind of over look post that don't pretain to what I plan on cooking. Until now![p]Now I'm confused. I checked the recipe/pork section and I see that Ben's Pulled Pork 5-7 lbs @225 takes 6 hours to cook and that Brant's Butt 6 lbs @ same temp takes 20 hours. How can this be?[p]Anyway, I'm soon going to head to the grocery and buy a butt to cook for New Years Day. I'm ready to try any method from 20 hours or a shorter cook.[p]I've had nothing but great sucsess so far on all of my BGE cooks so I know I can handle what ever I need to do.[p]Your suggestions for a "New Years butt cooking" is greatly appreciated.[p]Thanks!
