Had my egg for about 8 years but have never had the time or "know-how" to smoke a butt......I live in barbeque country so it easier to just buy one every now and then. But now retired, bored to death, and want to give it a try.
So just a couple of basic questions: I have looked at the recipes and so forth but there are so many different ones I don't know which to do.....so, what is the very simplest way to prepare and cook a butt? What temp do I pull it?...have seen suggestions from 165-225!
I assume I can put the butt on the egg with a drip pan to catch the grease and deflect the heat. And I have seen where I need to "rest" it afterwards.
Anything else I should do on this first butt? And, like I said, please keep it simple. I'm not trying to win a contest with this thing.
