  • Re: First Boston Butt - advice please

    Probably be more like 1.5 hours per lb @250.  Time is just as estimate, cook to temp and it is done when it is done.

    I usually pull mine at 200, but you will probably be fine at 195, just make sure the temp probe goes in out like it is going in soft butter.

    Use the platesetter and get the butt farther away from the heat source.

    Yes on time per largest butt.

    Butts are very forgiving.  Get a rub that you like and have at it.

    You've got a good plan.
  • Re: Plate setter vs. stone

    Turtle I think most people have the platesetter because it a BGE product and when you buy the first egg you aren't going to know much about accessories from other vendors.

    I have a platesetter and the PSWoo3 and it suits all my cooking needs, along with the woo extender.

    The adjustable rig from gives you the most variations of cooking on the egg.

    Plus 100 on The Commissary.  Never had anything there that wasn't grea tand dweebs is right about the banana pudding.  Buddy of mine lives right down the road and he knows to not even ask me where I want to eat.
  • Re: Hamburger Questions

    1. I always grill everything raised
    2. Baking steel is an option and getting a lot of praise. I have two of them but haven't used them for anything but pizza and quesadillas.
    3. How long for MW depends on the temp
    4. I grill burgers raised direct at between 450 and 500
    5. Dome down

    Just try them different ways and you will figure out how they turn out best for you.  One of the great things about Q and the BGE, most things don't have just one way to do it.

    Good Luck
