We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers
for a backyard grill out, some brats
before a baseball game or searing a steak
for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

Hi guys, I've been out a while. My computer fried and I just became a grand paw.
I built another computer and worried my daughter to death until she sent me home so I guess I better get back grillin.
I bought 2 Boston butts.
I am going to brine them tonight in
1 gal of water
a really full 1/2 cup of kosher salt
almost 1 cup of brown sugar
Can't decide whether to rub them with Magic dust or Ray Lampes big time bbq rub in the morning.
As they are cooking I will spray with Ray Lampes whiskey spray mop but only when I have to open the egg for adding wood or some other good reason. I'm still not sure if I want to spray them with that or just plain apple juice any thoughts on that?
For smoke I'm thinking Cherry and Jack Daniels smoking chips #7. I have never used that stuff but it smells really strong so I'm thinking I better go heavy on the cherry and light on Jack Daniels chips.
When it's done I'm going to pull it and toss it with Lampes big time bbq sauce.
(You'll never guess who's cook book I bought to read while my daughter was having her baby) 15 hours later 9lb 3oz boy.
My last pulled pork was Carolina style and it was very good, this will not be Carolina style but I hope it will be very good as well.
Unless somebody stops me thats my plan, I'll do pics tomorrow.
