Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Multiple butts and a hot dog question

Hello all,[p]I've done a few single Boston butts with great success. I'm planning a feed for tomorrow evening and have two 7.5 lb. bone-in butts basking in JJ's rub in the fridge right now. Does an extra butt add much to the total cooking time? I'm goint to stick them on the Egg between 8 an 9 this evening. Guests will start to arrive about 6:30.[p]Also, in the event of a larger than expected crowd I'm going to have some hot dogs on hand. I haven't cooked them in years, much less on the Egg. WHat should I do as far as temp/cook time goes? I'm assuming I'll be doing them direct.[p]Thanks,
Mike

    MikeInMdsn , Both butts will cook nearly the same..the smaller of course will be done faster. I would add about 10% to my gestament..and if done quicker your o.k. Just foil wrap, and place in a empty cooler chest. Toss a towel over em for added insulation and they will be ready when you are.
    Direct with the wieners at around 400 to 500F is sufficient.
    Have fun..
