Hi group!
New here, got my Egg a few weeks ago and love it!! Today it's my first try on a PP. So excited :-)))))
Egg seems to be stable at 220 now and I will sit here just watching and enjoying the next hours :-)

One question: Do you mop your PP (closer to finish time) or just leave the lid closed until meat temp has reached desired value (200?).

    I just Leave the lid closed until it reaches 200.  When it is done I take it up and double wrap it in foil and let it rest for about 30 minutes approximately.  Then I shred the meat in a stainless steel bowl with two forks because its pretty hot still.  During the 30 minute rest time I am finishing up the sides for the meal :+)

    Happy Egging, Pharmeggist

    Thanks, Pharmeggist. So no mopping for me today, too :-)

    I agree... no mopping necessary. I did a couple last weekend. I FTC'd mine for about 4 hours. When I unwrapped them for pulling the IT was still 160.

    And, BTW, welcome to the lifestyle.
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I did my first butt a few weeks ago and I did not mop it and it turned out great.
