Cooking Shoe Leather on the Egg Revisited

Yesterday's shoe leather on the BGE turned out fairly well. At any rate it was edible! Husband did the chuck roast for about four hours and it did produce a pulled beef kind of thing.[p]After we ate husband did a pretty productive experiment for him. Instead of shutting down the lump charcoal he waited to see how long the BGE would maintain the temperature he wanted. Lasted for quite a long time and now he feels he has learned enough about controlling temperatures to do a truly long and slow.[p]Many thanks for everyone's replies.[p]Chris in Pearland, TX where TS Ivan is threatening us

    Spring Chicken,[p]We ended up doing our shoeleather in one of those clay roasters. Took about 4 hrs and came out pretty good. Not the most flavorful, but we made slits all over it and stuck in garlic and fried up some hatch chilis with it. All's well that..well, we ate it.[p]"I SCHPIT ON YOU, IVAN"[p]mShark in Foat Wuth
