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!

Cooking a butt Sunday morning.

Roughly have 9 hours to play with.

When I get home from church I will adjust temp prn, do not want to foil until I pull and FTC if need be.

    I tried this method once and it turned out really good:

    Time sounds about right to me.  Only thing I would suggest...I wouldn't rule out foiling the butt during the cook as option to speed it up if time is getting short.  I don't think you will need to...but it's a good option to have if you need to speed it along.


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    @MCN- the last one I did was a 9lbs and I did it at about 275 (@ the grid) until I hit 120 or so and then bumped to 350 it finished in 7 1/2 hrs roughly. I kicked it in at 120 because I read hereg (I think) that is where smoke absorption is done. Was prolly the best one I have done yet without foil. I am in the ditch the Italian dressing camp too, but what do I know. You should try a good slather of srichacha sauce and BB butt rub. Awesome if you like a bit of heat in you bark.

    I did a 7 ½ lb butt on my small a couple weeks ago at 275° and no foil, same temp the entire cook and it was a touch under 8 hours. It turned out fantastic. Pulled Pork and Brisket kind of weekend.

    Doing the exact same cook MCN, except trying injecting teriyaki instead of Italian. Can't remember where I read that one but going to give it a go.

    That's roughly 10 hours.. Some cuts take longer... IMHO. Might start earlier or Turbo. I know little steven disagrees but I like to ftc a few hours.
