We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

What happened with my last pork butt?

Cooked an eight pound pork butt over the weekend. In the egg approx 18 hours at a dome temp of 220 to 250. I took it out of the egg when the internal temp hit 186-187, because people were getting really hungry. Although the taste was wonderful, the consistancy of the meat was closer to roast pork than "pulled pork". I didn't wrap and keep the butt in a (warm) cooler like I usually have done in the past. Was it this or something else that kept the pork from being hand-pullable? Always trying to learn from each and every cook. . . [p]Thanks,[p]PJ
