I just did it once again, I should say that it took 16 plus hours, I did a low and slow 8.5 pound Boston Butt to an internal of 205 degrees and kept it in the egg for an additional hour. This procedure is well worth it. The additional hour of cooking rendered out quite a bit more fat. The Pulled Pork was still moist and flavorful and the pulling was quicker because of less fat to pick out. I will be doing this when I have an extra hour before lunch.[p]Try it and please let me know what you think.


  • Fireball, What's wrong with pork fat?[p](just kidding, good idea.)
