    Thats one way...

    PS legs up, drip pan with spacers (foil balls are fine), grid with butt

    Dome stable at 250 to 275, add smoke wood and wait for clear or blueish good smelling smoke. Add butt

    Start checking for tenderness at about 185 - 190, when you bone starts to come out clean you are done

    There will be a stall

    Don't sweat it. Butt is about the most forgiving cook there is on the egg

    Have fun, enjoy, and post pictures

    As said above there is all kinda different ways to cook a butt. I go hot and fast, 325-350 dome and a 9lb butt will be done in 7 1/2hrs or so. No more overnights here.

    4:30 AM Update.... cook time at this point is 8 hours. Temperatue is holding steady at 215 - dome. Internal meat temp is 163... Getting close - at this rate, should see 185 around 7:30 AM....
     
    Will check back in after the sun comes up.....

    @Cajunpride2012 Sounds like you are in the stall-don't be surprised if when you next check that the temp hasn't gone anywhere and may have dropped a few degrees.   You should have a few hours of cooking still in front of you.  Enjoy the eats!

    got mine on the egg this morning at 6 a.m., going 285 (legs up, drip pan with apple juice) until the bone slides out. 7 pounder. sounds like you're just about there.

    Don't forget to let them rest after. I always wrap in foil for 30 minutes minimum and up to 7 hours FTC if needed.

    OK - I'm done and no doubt tired after pulling an all nighter. As mentioned earlier, I am calling this my Black Berry Bourbon Butt. I mentioned what my injection consided of along with the rub and if I had to change anything , I would have added more Bourbn. Overall, I would give it a 9 out of 10. The Bark was excellent and the texture of the meat was perfect. Overall, the total cook time was 13.5 hours at 225 - 240 dome. Legs up, drip pan (no water), Hickory Chuncks with Royal Oak Lump.
     
    Enjoy the pictures and thanks for the advice...
