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

Butt and Egg temp. monitoring

This is a theoretical question. I made a phenomal butt about a month ago, and quite frankly, it is time for another. Last one was almos 9# and took about 17hrs at 240-250. I started it at 10pm and was consantly running outside to check the temp of the egg to make sure there was not any wild temp. fluctuations. I lost a bit of sleep. I have since procured a wireless thermometer, which is great for steaks, chicken, etc. But seeing as how I am not going to be worried about taking the temp of the butt for 17 or so hours, i feel I am more worried initially about the dome temp. So I was going to gator clip the probe of the wireless termo to the egg thermo and use another wire thermo probe for the pork temp. This way, while I am in bet at 1am a quick check of the wireless thermo will give me the dome temp.
Question is??? AM I overthinking this, or is this a reasonable solution?
