Two eight pound butts went on at 7pm Eastern. I have 18 beers, half a handle of Jack, a drinkin' buddy, and the day off tomorrow. I bought a probe thermometer today with a wireless receiver. Working great. I have the BGE tuned in at 225 and my neighbor accross the canal has already called requesting a sandwich. My backyard smells awesome right now!!!!! More updates later.

Meat is currently at 110 degs at 2 hours.

    18 beers times 16 pounds of butt, carry the 7pm, plus one thermometer divided by one drinking buddy equals you are gonna pass out before that puppy is done

  • Thanks!
    I have been looking for that formula for a long time. Does it change if you buddy is the opposite sex (maybe a friend with "privileges")?

    Even if I sleep 'till 11 I am still OK time wise. (I'm searching for excuses already.)
  • Bro, just party like a rock star and enjoy

    1:05am meat holding at 165 degs. Egg pinned at 225. I have had this thing since April and I am still impressed everytime I cook on it. I have never had a grill that holds temp like this.

    I can't believe USC lost to Org ST!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I need the Gators to beat Ole Miss so we can move up. Look out agian Dawgs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1:51am going to bed. Pork temp around 168degs Egg still holding steady at 225. I hope this works out! Update when I wake-up. The wireless receiver is on my night stand.
  • That is right about where I went wrong. About 3 am, meat in the mid 160's, temp holding pretty steady. You do have the advantage of a wireless receiver though. Goodluck.

    7:41am and am ahppy to say I have not screwed this up ..........yet. Egg temp has fallen to just above 200 degs so I had to open up the dampers a little. The pork is at 183 degs and climbing. I hope to have this baby ready to go by 11am. Wish me luck!!!!

    Congratulations, sounds like a success. Maybe bump that thing up a little higher than 225 for an 11am finish, if you come in early you can always wrap/cooler it
