Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Smoking a Boston Butt

Hello, I am new to the BGE. After doing a whole chicken and a pork tenderloin (they were great) I am going to do a 7 lb butt. After reading much of the material on the forum I'm down to a couple of questions. I would appreciate any help.

I am confused on how much charcoal to put in the egg (large size). I have read about separating the sizes but do you use the whole bag (22 lbs)? The next thing is I've read that some folks stack the charcoal up to the top of the fire ring. Also, has anyone tried mesquite?
