    MickeyT.,[p] Once again, that is for sure, a nice butt you have going.
    We have not done one in awhile, so after looking at your picture, it will be done soon.[p]Earl

  • Chef MickeyT.,
    See I told you it would not be long before we'd have to call you by your right name! :-)))[p]Well done my man! It looks great and I'm sure it tasted just as good if not better![p]Dr. Chicken

    Dr. Chicken,[p]Thanks a lot man. My success with the egg is primarily due to this forum and it's many followers. I have never done a butt before and it was by far (steaks included) the tastiest dinner I have cooked so far. I pulled it Saturday night and used my FoodSaver to pack in individual sammich portions. Pulled a couple out on Sunday, dropped them in boiling water and the rest is history. To quote TimM. "Went quicker than free money" :>) Hard to believe it was so tasty for being an inexpensive pc. of meat.[p]Mick[p]P.S. I will be asking for skinlees pheasant cooking directions later in the week, as a friend dropped one off for me yesterday.

    Nature Boy,
    Or any one else out there in this wonderful forum Im a newbie When it comes to the BGE. My Question is foil or not when cooking some good butt and is a polder really neccesary[p] I never had so much fun in my life[p] Smokin forever Scott

    Scott S,[p]During the cook, foil works well in the drip pan to help make cleanup easier. The meal is cooked uncovered, resting in the v-rack over the drip pan. Upon completion of the cook, the meal can be tented in foil to help hold the heat until serving time. I prefer not to wrap pulled pork in foil as this makes the nice chew of the crust a bit mushy.[p]A polder type thermometer is not a necessity and the cook can be done without it. It is convenient as its use adds the dimension of internal temperature to the look and feel of the meat when judging the doneness of a meal.[p]Spin

  • Spin,

    Thanks Spin

    I can see that Im going to do just fine with my results with every thing I cook thanks to you and all the other vets out there.[p] Keep smokin
