Made ya look!! :P

Been a long time since I've done an overnighter, and after working 11 straight days, this was almost going to be a turbo butt on Friday, but at the last minute, I said screw it, poured myself a bourbon and coke and fired up the Egg. Figure the Auber Pit Controller can take care of it anyway. Butt went on at 10.

The temp is so low because I just opened the dome,

Should be a good night.

    It ended up going 16.5 hours. Right now its wrapped up in foil and in a cooler waiting for Mrs. G to get home. Speaking of....I should probably get started on the coleslaw.

    Did you score the top to add more surface area for bark? Either way, I am going to steal that idea. Looks great.

  • what did the butt weigh. just thinking about  size and time to smoke
  • GriffinGriffin Posts: 7,672

    yeah I scored the surface for more bark.

    Not sure on weight. There were two in a package that weighed about 19.5 lbs. Looked about the same size. 250 for first 4 hours, 225 for the next 12.5 hours.
