It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

@Skiddymarker - I respect your decision not to use a Rutland. Everyone needs to do their own research and then make a decision they feel comfortable with. My comment on acetone was more geared toward meaning it was unnecessary to use acetone (paint stripper much easier), more than I don't want chemicals soaking into the ceramic. I'm glad we all have different ways of doing things or this forum would be mighty boring. Cook on my friend!!
Personally, I wouldn't bother with the 450º/300º thing. I'd bring my egg up to 350º and hold it steady there. I did (2) 9 pounders a few weeks ago at 350º and they reached 195º internal meat temp in 5.5 hours, perfect for pulling. If you only go to 185º internal for slicing as the recipe calls for, you're probably only talking 5 hours total @ 350º.
