Making a good thing even better?

In the past(pre-BGE), I have roasted pork shoulder/butt in a conventional oven. With this method, I've poked holes in the meat and stuffed in garlic, green onion and various other goodies. My question is can this kind of thing be done with pulled pork? With the longer cooking time I don't want to overwhelm the meat with an intense garlic flavor. I would like to impart a slight hint of garlic thru the meat however. [p]Does anyone have any experience with this kind of addition to the pork butt?[p]I'm thinking some hot peppers would be nice in the meat too :)[p]PP

    Pig Picker, IMHO, that is still a good cook, but a slight deviation from real southern pulled pork. I think your leaning more to a pork roast type cook. If it pleases you then do it. The BGE can cook almost any conventional oven bake or roast. Only better! :-) Try it and see! You will do no wrong and thats the fun part of it. Well, almost no wrong, I almost blew a pizza last night when I came in to check the computer for messages. Still a good pizza..Maybe KennyG will post the photo..

    Pig Picker:[p]I have done butt with insertions of garlic and have enjoyed it. Garlic takes on a different character when it is completely cooked. If you like it cooked in the oven, you will find it enjoyable when done in the BGE.
