I have an 8.71 lb bone in pork butt that I want to cook in my lg egg for the first time. I want to eat at about 1pm on Monday. I have several questions.[p]1. What should my egg setup be (I have a plate setter and a v rack - do I need them?) What about a drip pan?[p]2. How long and at what temp should I cook it at? I have read several posts ranging from 225 to 260? [p]3. What does the internal temp of the butt need to be before it is ready to eat? Can anyone tell me where I can get one of those thermometers that the probe stays in the meat but the gauge can be placed outside the egg?[p]4. Rub - I don't think I want to use a rub. My cousin cooked some pulled pork once and all he used was apple cider vinager and pepper and it was great. Any thoughts about this.[p]Sorry so many questions - I just want this to turn out good![p]Thanks in advance.[p]Jason
