It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

turbo pork butt

Well this is my first attempt at a turbo butt cook, got dome temp at 320 to 340, its cold so kinnda moving betwen the two, not to concerned about that. Going for IT of 200, does this sound good? Also I have it foiled, I heard no foil no turbo, guess I'll see what happens.

    Turbo butt cooking starts with cold meat --  cooking as low as you can, while exposing maximum smoke to the butt until you reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, at that pojnt the butt gets wrapped in a few layers of foil to seal the meat up and prevent it from loosing any juices.  Back on the grill -- at that point you can bump the temperature up to 300 or 330.  Continue cooking til a 200 degree internal is met !

  • Well next time I will do it right. This time I will chalk it up to a new experiment.

    @chris123stock- begin with the end in mind-if it turned out well then just remember how you got there.  Turbo is a high temp cook method that can vary by many variables.  Just learn from the journey and change up as you want.  The beauty of the BGE is that almost any road will get you there.  Bottom line-enjoy the journey!

    Given the highntempnthe whole time, how about "Hot Butt"? ;)

  • I think the term I will use is foiler, it sounds devious and mysterious lol, kinda like a vilan in batman or something, I guess its like I wanted to do the right thing and BAM I did the opposite like a bad guy. Ok that a load of crap but WTH it sounded good to me. Foiler is my term. I know im not the first to screw that up, just the first to admit it.  8-}

    If it turned out great and everyone that got to eat it was happy I would say that is a great cook! Far from a screw up. Most of my guests could care less how I got there if the end result was tasty! I almost always tweak recipes to make it work for me and the people I am cooking for, unless I want to copy the recipe exact and I usually say so. Many ways to create great food on the egg and you just discovered another one!  =D>

    Yes I know you dont really screw up if its good, and no one is throwing up or a wicked ass case of diarrhea. I love to try new ways and talk a whole mess of trash. Also this might be just me, but during thr FTC I use country music in the cooler? Have you ever tried this?
