This weekend we went on our annual church campout at Santa Yenez group camp ground. Unloaded the Large Egg and loaded it up with 14.7 pounds of pork shoulder for some pulled pork. At 2:00 pm Friday I loaded it with Mesquite lump to within three inches of the grill. This was hugh lump. Logs and limbs cut up. Yes I used my large to small method. This was the bottom of a forty pound bag. I must have had a good 10+ pounds in there. At 2:00 Saturday(24 hours later) I pulled the pork and the people next to me forgot their charcoal so I grilled their burgers and hot dogs. Then at 7:00 pm I loaded up 12 lbs of brisket flats for Sundays supper which I pulled off at 6:00 am Sunday morning(40 hours total so far). Then I grilled Italian breakfast sausage and hot links for Breakfast while frying bacon on the gas camp stove. The Egg idle at around 250 until noon when I grilled 12 Price club burgers that weight in around 3/4 lb each. Later around 6 pm while we were eating Elder Wards brisket the neighbors cooked 2 pork chops and a 12 inch trout that a 5 year old girl caught. At 10 pm when I hit the sack It was still hot(56 hours). Sometime during the night the egg went cold. This morning at 6 am
Monday I grilled the rest of the sausage and hot links then opened the bottom vent all the way and removed Miss Daisy to get rid of the rest of the lump. I needed the space to pack the accessories inside.
At 12 noon I finally put out the last of the coals there might have been a cup full left. That was 62 hours of documented burn time during which it never got below 250* and 8 hours that I am not sure when it really went out. If I had not been short on time and blasted the rest this morning there is no telling how long it would have burnt. I have never got this lenght of burn time with anything other than lump Mesquit. The last and prior personal record was just 36 hours. [p]If you got smoke em and smoke em and smoke em,[p]Elder Ward
