Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

My first attempt at smoking--and my homemade platesetter

First with the platesetter. I used this guys idea:

I just added a 14.5 inch pizza stone from publix. Total cost: $34. Hope it works.
Now for the butt. I wanted to do a brisket but after reading all the cautionary tales on here I decided to do a Boston butt. It's 5.4 pounds so I'm thinking about 8hrs at 225-250. I followed this guys directions:

It went on about an hour ago, so here we go.... If I'm doing anything wrong-- PLEASE let me know!
