Butt all rubbed hitting the egg early!

Sliced a bit on the fat cap for max bark. Dizzy Dust and Raging River rubbed on yellow mustard base. More pics to follow. I am hungry already!

  • @Chubbs mine is about 8 lbs, too.  How is yours coming along?  Mine hit the egg just an hour ago.

    My sure you saw my thread. Had my first bad butt. Nightmare from the start. Picked up from butcher and he trimmed entire fat cap off. Got new gasket and high que grate on egg. This was first low n slow with high que. vent settings are way dufferent. Had done dials in for an hour at 250. Putt butt on at midnight. Monitored egg for an hour. Stayed right on 250. Woke up at 7, done at 350 and IT temp of butt at 212. Not good. Tasted decent at best. Got some playing to do to get used to high que. good luck with yours. Hard to mess up a butt but I did somehow. Guests still loved it but I was disappointed.

    Got two Butts rubbed up with some Bad Byrons getting ready to hit the EGG for a low-n-slow. Hickory chunks for the smoke.
