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! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Celtic Wolf - I submitted this last week and did not get a reply so I am trying again. Hopefully, you will see this and help me out...

I remember that you posted sometime back that you were using some configuration of TJV's EggAccessories to maximize the number of butts you could get on a large egg. What combination of grids. extenders, etc. do you use to stack the butts?

I have committed to cook pork butts for a homeless shelter for both the Memorial Day and July 4th hoidays and I need to achieve MAXIMUM BUTTAGE for each cook.

Thanks,
KC

    Just the standard setup. spider with pizza stone on spider. Drip pan on spider. Main grate and the grate on the adjustable.

    No offense but you may want to re-think your commitment. Are you equipped to handle that kind of cook? If word gets out they are feeding BBQ(and it will) to the homeless you could be looking at 100+ to feed and quickly. One Egg is not going to cut it.

    So what is the problem? Ask your local dealer to lend a couple of BGE's and ask your church to step up and buy the butts. Everyone will do it, (if you ask nice) and the dealer will sell a few eggs to the locals and the church will continue to reach out to the homeless. It's a win for everyone.

    It's a lot work to pull this kind of thing off, especially if you have never done it before. It's not a I'll show up and cook kind of thing. I am sure the shelter will supply the meat. That is not really the issue. The issue is the sheer number of "homeless" people that could show up.

    As for the local dealers "donating eggs" you must live in an area where the local dealer actually has eggs in stock to do that. Most don't and those that do aren't going to mess up there inventory without some kind of potential return on investment. Not sure what kind residual business a dealer will get from a homeless shelter.

    Not saying he can't pull it off, but there is a reason why catering is a major investment.

    Thanks for the info. I am not the only person supplying BBQ for the holiday. Others have committed to cook as well so I will cook as much as the Large will hold!

    Thanks again.
