Went pretty well. The cook lasted 13 hours - dome held steady at 250*, it was a 8.5lbs butt. My meat alarm went off at 190* at 4AM. I didn’t open the egg from start until finish - I was proud of myself, I’m a bit impatient. I thought it would go a little longer, but I guess the time can vary from 1.5-2 hours/lbs. I’m doing a brisket this weekend.

I was amazed on how much lump was left over. There was a lot.

BTW, everyone thought the pork was incredible!!!!!

The picture isn’t that great, I need to work this...

    It's not always easy going the distance without looking under the hood. It does seem to add to the beauty of it all.
  • :) that pic tells me everything i need to know. crusty outside, tender inside....nicely done, sir
  • Nice cook Robert, when they are done they done. when you do your brisket if you have a point and a flat the point well take longer

    That's a great looking bark on the outside of that butt! Congrats on your success!
  • Thanks everyone...

    Hi Ross, I checked out your brisket link, looks mighty fine. What does the scoring do for the brisket? Does that help the rub penetrate the meat?
