First Boston Butt on new Egg

Hello All. This is my first post. Got a large egg for my birthday at the beginning of August and I am in love. Put my first butt on last night at 9:15 and pulled it off at 10 this morning. It is a 6.5 lb. roast that I am cooking for an office party this afternoon. My rub consisted of sugar, brown sugar, cumin, parsley, oregano, cayenne, kosher salt, paprika, black pepper, and a little chili powder. I rubbed the butt down with mustard then applied the mixed rub. I cooked it at 200 all night and sprayed it down with apple juice about every three hours. I can't believe how well the egg retains heat. It never got over 250 the entire time.

This is the best pulled pork I have ever had. It is so juicy. The outside crust looks a little more blackened than some of the butts I have seen in the forum but it tastes so good, not burnt at all. Also below see the table that my Dad and I built for the egg.
