Got two bonless pork butts on large egg for overnight cook at 225. First time overnight. Hope it goes well.

    Enjoy the ride. I remember ny first. I think I got 5 minutes of sleep that night. Best is the morning when having a cup of coffee and smelling the aroma coming out of the egg.

    Love the smell of smoking on the egg in the morning

    Well, I forgot to take pictures, but it turned out great.  I checked on it a couple of times, but was done this morning and can't wait for everyone at the party to have some.  If you haven't tried pulled pork and eggs for breakfast.  Highly recommend it.
