    I have it sitting on the PS, which is also covered in foil. I am a suspenders and belt type of guy. I started using these pans years ago. Works awesome.

    Why is this in the off topic thread? Seems right on point to me.....and can't wait to see the finish.

    Pilot error (again) is the only thing I can think of.

    Having fun with a cook. Hoping it turns out. 3rd one I have done. First was awesome, second one, I actually forgot about. (It is where I am at in life) Mind fade is always exciting.

    Hoping all is well with you and you have recovered well from the Hurricane.

    Still have many trees down with no company available to remove yet. They haven't even begun to pickup the debris. Hopefully the season stays quiet from here on out.

    Glad to see you are ok. I am sure it will take some time, but I am thankful our friends in Florida is on the way to recovery.
    Hoping the season is over for you.

    That's gonna be great. I'm planning to do a similar sized one this Sunday so I'll be interested to see how long this one takes to cook. Good luck!

    I think it is going to need at least 5 hours.

    @shtgunal3

    Depends on how it turns out. If super tender and decent bark, I will slice it up, otherwise, pulled and shredded. Either way, it will end up on bread with a horseradish cream sauce and bleu cheese crumbles.

    Thank you for the kind words.

    Total mismanagement of the English language. Pilot error.

    I really love the MiniMax, I will only get rid of it when it is broken, and replace it soon thereafter with another BGE MM.

    Sounds good man. One of our local grocery stores has chucks for $2.99 a pound right now. I'll probably do one this weekend.

    When you say company....are you speaking of friends and relatives or Tree services? :)

    I did not think to do so. It was well marbled throughout, CAB, if that helps.

    Ron there is nothing like working from home and keeping and eye out on the egg. The aroma stimulates clarity amongst what is important (and not) about your day

    . Cook on my brother....and enjoy. .....and would that bread you speak of happen to be of the Hawaiian persuasion?

    Aloha Brother Robin! It most certainly will be.

    We have the windows open today, 73F outside, and the aroma running throughout the house. Making me sooooo hungry.

    6 hours 187F IT, still getting some resistance in using the tooth pick. Thinking 7 hours and it should be done. Cow always wins.

    Just pulled, 6.5 hours 196F IT, zero resistance with a toothpick in the center mass.
    Resting now for 20-30 mins. The new serving up. It is super moist and very tender.
    Stole a bite, did not suck.
