Results of "Quick" Cook Pulled Pork

Thanks to all who responded. I cooked at 275, the shoulder (it was not a butt but the 'picnic' cut) went on at about 10:45. At 6:15 it was just over 200 internal, looked like a nice bark, the little bit I pulled off to taste tasted just like yummy 'q. I'll pull it and re-heat it in a little barbeque sauce tonight. One note, the picnic seems to have more fat than a butt, and I think cooking times are shorter anyways. I bet a five pound shoulder wouldn't take the two to two and a half hours per pound that butts seem to take. More like an hour and a half to two hours per.[p]David B.


  • David B.,[p]Good for you :)[p]Hay, BTW.... did you sleep well ? I toss and turn on those overnighters still. I have about 6 or so under my belt but I guess not enough to feel super comfortable.[p]Of course... that is probably a good thing.[p]Congrats on the cook... and Happy Egging.. BB

    BB,[p]I quickly became sold on the eggs ability to handle overnighters without my intervention. As a matter of fact, this overnighter was the coldest outdoor temp yet, and the egg was a champ! My first overnighter, I got up twice to check the fire, my second once, ever since then I just sleep. I once saw a poster on complain that people shouldn't buy ceramic cookers because they make 'q too easy. I don't have any real desire to make my cooking hard just for the sake of harder work. I only care about the finished product. I guess that's my way of saying, go ahead and get a good nights sleep, that's why you have any egg!
