<p />Well, just give you late niters/early risers an update on my "Easy Peasy" Butt Cook, let me bring you up to speed.
When we last talked(3:27am), my buttz were doing well and so was I
Seems Like I have things "well in Hand". After some words with my beloved about why the "thingy" (remote thermometer!) keeps beepin and one more shot of Der Jaeger, I promise to go to bed and check our egg (son) in a few hrs. So, at 8:30 am I jump out of bed and ask as she wakes,"What that smell?" She reassures me that around 6:00am, she went to check the butts and saw that the fire HAD GONE OUT.

    JimboBQ,[p]Sorry to hear aboot thy pines....VERY windy here still!
    What's your update?

  • Eggvis,
    I haven't followed the whole story, but the meat is gonna be just fine. It isn't blasphemy to finish in the oven. The real work has been done in the egg. I usually wrap in foil if I go to the oven. [p]If you need them done at a specific time, you can hurry matters a bit by upping the oven temp. [p]Mike in MN
