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

  • Turbo butt question

    I inject with Mixon's hog recipe and let it marinade for a few hours in the fridge.  Then I pat it dry and apply my rub and let it sit for about 30 minutes on my counter.  Next I place the butt in the egg at 325 dome temp and use a DigiQ to keep it there and clip the temp prob onto the dome thermometer.  I put my butt in an aluminum pan to help keep the clean up to a minimum. Once the butt reaches 160 internal,  I foil it with a cup of apple juice in the pan. I pull it off once the butt hits 200 or 205 internal.  Depending on the size of the butt, it should only take 5-6 hours total time. Pics below. All those juices in the pan once the butt is done can be used to keep your pulled sections moist.  You can also use your favorite BBQ sauce in conjunction with the juices.  It's pretty tasty.  I ate pulled pork for a week.  This was a 9 1/2 lb butt.
