  • Re: 2 Butt advice needed

    So glad I asked you guys!  I've not had a cook like this before - but, then again, this has been a first on a number of fronts:

    The egg held rock solid at 249 degrees all night.....from 11pm last night until 7:30am it held exactly at 249.  I've never had one hold so steady all night.  I'm using Wicked Good lump for the first time - and, I have heard it does burn more steady....maybe that's it.

    Then, all of the sudden, the egg jumped to 300 degrees even though I hadn't opened it or touched it.  That's when I checked and one of them was reading 190 degrees. 

    Now, the egg is back down to 250 degrees and the butts are both reading 180 degrees.  I've not had a butt go up, down and back up again.

    Glad I asked you guys - I'd had been so disappointed if I pulled it early.  I have some "Northerners" coming in for dinner and they need to see how we do it!

    Thanks, again, for the advice.
  • Re: 2 Butt advice needed, my LBGE has stabilized nicely at 250* and the two butts just went onto the grid with a bunch of Hickory chunks smoking away!

    I took your advice, R2, and put the biggin' in the back.  Rubbed one down with yellow mustard and Raging River and the other with Dizzy Dust.

    I'll watch the Seahawk's smack-around the 49'ers for a little while longer and then off to bed!  Can't wait for dinner tomorrow!!!

    Thanks for all the advice, folks!
  • Re: 1st Low-n-slo Pork Butt tonight

    After more than 15-hrs at 250 degrees, the butt just won't seem to get above 190 degrees.  I'm worried about drying-out the butt by leaving it sit and just smoldering much longer.  Does anyone disagree with my pulling it and letting it finish-off wrapped in foil in a cooler?
