  • Mark B, Sorry to leave positive comments out - butts are really a forgiving long cook, I'm sure you will have excellent pulled pork - I've had to pull mine at 180 due to time constraints and it was tasty as hell, although not 'perfect'.
  • Mark B, I'd change 2 and 5. 2: fat side up, let the fat baste the roast; 5: Let it go to 190, at 180 you are having to "tear" a little bit to pull it. At 190 it's very moist and tender and just pulls apart like your high school girlfriend's ...…
  • ttbq, Enjoy those tri-tips, I did one last night and can't wait to eat the leftovers with my eggs tomorrow morning. Tonight was stuffed green peppers. BTW, I do my tri-tips at 300 for about 45 minutes, ends up wonderfully pink and rich - an alter…

  • Sandbagger, That is a little confusing, but I'm neither a Badger or Gopher fan - more like the Cyclones of Iowa State! Badger was just a nickname I got in college and couldn't think of another handle.
  • Eggtuary, Definitely a whole new world - gets to cooking temp faster and hotter, slow cooks better than any pit smoker, and to boot it keeps the meat moist the whole time. Absolutely love it.
  • Clay Q, Pizza is on the menu for the near future - what I hate is having to deal with making the crust. I was at the Marietta Sam's this week and they were out of pre-made crusts, but it will happen soon...
  • ccrider, thinking about it, but the Maverick has the alarm for when the temp falls out of the range, so I guess I'll learn the hard way!
  • Citizen Q, Living here in the upper midwest my gasket freezes every year. I open it up the same way you did by droping half a fireplace fire starter (wax and sawdust)in through the top. It doesn't start the charcoal on fire but warms the egg up e…
