Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

One butt not enough? Two too much?

Here are the facts:[p]6 Adults and 6 kids ages 7-13.[p]Two butts (bone in) each 8 lbs.[p]Serving with tortillas for tacos, also tamales, beans and salad.[p]One doesn't seem enough, two seems like over kill.[p]What do you think? Do you use a per person factor to determine the butt to guest ratio?[p]Thanks!

    Stuart,
    PP freezes well.
    "To Much"...Never. Cook 2.

    Stuart,
    Make them both, I've found that the meat disappears much faster when served with tortillas vs buns. And left over PP just doesn't last very long. -RP

    Stuart,[p]Too much, what is this you speak of????[p]Whenever I cook large cuts like butt or brisket, I always imediately take a hunk and Foodsaver for the freezer. Never know when you may want to pull it for a sandwich in the future or use it all up in a Brunswick stew. Empenadas or even a quick cuban sandwich are easy "leftover" meals and probably better than what you could go pay for at a restaurant for $8 at lunch time.
