OVEN Pork Butt.. Ask me why

The XL egg is frozen solid, that's why. 

We had a hard freeze here in Dallas this past week. Lots of rain and snow and ice. I picked up a 13 pounder yesterday, walked outside a few minutes ago to crank the egg, and the damn lid is closed solid.

I tired using a butter knife to pry the gasket - no luck.

I tried to light the coal from beneath, even used my wife's hair dryer to help stoke - no luck.

My family will be here tomorrow at noon, so I either need a quick fix to get the egg open, or off to the oven she goes.

Any help or pointers on the over route would be helpful. I figure the oven route would be similar to the egg.. in a large turkey pan, v-rack, and cider in the bottom, 300 degrees should have me at 190 by noon. 

Thanks guys. 

Jason
