Well, I finally recovered from my marathon cook and the Birthday BBQ!
Cooked 8 boston butts a total of 71.2 pounds. Pulled off over a 2 day period cooking 4 butts per burn. Each cook started at 6am and finshed no later than 10pm that night, finishing each butt around 190*. Maintained solid tempatures of 230*-250* on the top rack and 205*-225* on the bottom rack. With a full firebox loaded to the bottom of the drip pan, had to add more fuel after 9 hours, all that meat just soaked up the heat. These babies pulled apart like silk it was a beautiful thing, yielded approx. 40lbs. Served along side of BBQ beans, cole slaw, deviled eggs and fresh potato rolls. Had 3 different sauces from the Willinghams bbq book and everyone was in hog heaven, well at least thats what said! 75 people ate all they could and still went home with some treats for later. My wife was so happy about everything and all my hard work she authorized the purchase of a 2nd EGG!!! Life is good.[p]Greg

    gww,[p]Congrats on the cook, sounds awesome. So does your wife. She sounds like a good woman, hold onto her. Mine bought my first egg for me two years ago and she hasnt regretted it since. She loves egged food. Still working on her for that second egg, she may surprise me again, who knows. Congrats again on the cook, sounds like you done yourself and your egg proud.[p]Troy

    gww, wow, thats a cook to lay back and enjoy..I echo Troy in his sentiments also..Be sure and check out that post down below somewhere on the BGE source. Price is the best I have seen yet. And free shipping. Grab while you can.
    (Since this is a BGE forum I can say that (big smile)

    gww,
    watch out! It could be a trap! She might have plans on you doing 150# of PP next time. :-)

    Wise One,[p]If thats the logic his wife is using, he needs to plan a party where he needs 300 pounds of Pulled Pork and see how many eggs he can get out of it, just a thought.[p]Troy
  • gww,
