3 Butts on the Large

edited 7:03PM in EggHead Forum
Just put three butts on my Large BGE. Making pulled pork for a large party Friday night. A bit of water soaked apple and mesquite wood for flavor with a drip pan of cranapple juice. Butts rubbed with my own rub I call crystal meth. I expect it will take nearly 24 hours at 235 with around 24 lbs of meat.

I will post some pics later.

    Hmm, I think they will be done in time for breakfast... or maybe brunch.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Hey Hey Hey, I'm with JoJO, I resemble that remark also. Now here in TN we have heard the story of peeing on an electric fence but we still have to try it for ourselves just to see. :laugh: :laugh: Mike

    just put 22 butts on 4 eggs,, should be done around 1pm Friday..

    it's 1.5 hours per pound of each butt not total weight.
    otherwise I'd be here two days.. too long to wait when you guests are all armed to the teeth... :S
    :unsure: :blink:

    1) 1.5-2 hr per pound estimate for each butt, assuming they are not slammed up next to each other.
    2) Chips do not have to be soaked when cooking in an egg.

    3) Next run try it without the liquid in your drip pan. I'll bet you can't taste much difference. You definitely do not need the liquid to retain moisture in meats cooked in the Egg, and personally I've never been able to taste any difference from a flavored liquid, but maybe others can.

    Good luck - some happy people are going to LOVE you tonight !!! :woohoo: :woohoo:
  • I just hope your neighbors didn't have their windows open all night being tortured by the scent! Then again, you guys might not be as crammed together down in TN as they try to put us up here in NoVa.

    16 hours later. Meat is at 187 and 190 internal. Nice looking bark. Egg still running at around 135-140. I'll pull it between 195-200 and let it rest in a cooler for a couple hours before pulling it.

    Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. Pictures to come later

    I use the liquid in my drip pan because I don't like the smell of fat burning after dripping into a hot empty pan. I agree that it probably doesn't add much flavor, if any - but it certainly isn't hurting anything and costs very little.

    I think I would go ahead and pull it on the next few minutes, thats just me. If you are going to wrap and cooler it, it will climb a couple of degrees prob.
