First butt on first BGE mini

This is my first BGE and I got the mini. I smoked a 6.7lb fresh picnic that I deboned and trimmed. I stuffed it with sage and rosemary then rubbed and rolled up. It was smoked for 6.5 hrs with the new mini plate. It turned out great! Love the mini.

    Man, you nailed it. I failed at my only attempt. What is your drip pan?

    A double layer of tin foil. I bought the industrial 1000 ft roll. Last forever and builds your upper body strength.

    What temp did you smoke it at? I tried to turbo or nitro mine and the grease got the fire rocking. Charred the bottom. I use mini woo and ceramic stone wrapped in foil

    My grill thermo was half hanging out and reading 250. I stuck my thermo pen through the top vent and it was reading 245. I trimmed it lean when I deboned it and my tin foil pan held all the drippings.

  • I haven't done a butt with my mini yet and I'm clueless why that is.  Well done!
