It’s almost Halloween and if you’re cooking on your EGG, you may end up with more people knocking on your door asking for pork chops than candy! In case you’re willing to share and want to please a crowd, we recommend warm Margherita Pizza, FGL’s Lemon Pepper Wings or our favorite, S’mores in a Cone!

First Butt Question - Smoke chips

Hi Guys,

Doing my first butt today and first real cook on a LBGE.  I have Western brand Apple and Miesquite chips.  I am thinking of using just the apple chips today.  Here are my questions for the eggsperts:

1).  For a 8lbs butt how many chips would you use to give it enough smoke flavor but not too much?  
2).  Given my two types (Apple and Mesquite) would you recommend just the apple or mixing the two? 
3).  Do you recommend having the smoke chips on the first part of the cook only (e.g. the first few hours)? 

Thanks!
