Pricecutter had pork butt's on sale for 1.19 lb. and I picked up some. Have never done one and have noticed Pork Butt Mike seems to be the affienciando on these. Mike , just looking for some tips and I also noticed you have mentioned Thirdeye in a past post and was wondering if your's was simular to his advice. I would apperciate the guidance from anyone. This is a cook I have wanted to do for some time and by the posts of completed cooks I'm looking forward to this one.
Thanks :unsure: :lol: :cheer:

    If you know how to control a burn it's the easiest cook you'll ever do. Lacking any other advice, just go to The Naked Whiz site and follow the directions! I haven't been Eggin' all that long and here's the result of my first attempt. Happy cookin'!

    A pork butt cook is another area where the egg really shines. I build a good fire, new lump and plenty of it. I add some smoking wood(hickory) and stabilize at 250F. Then I add the rub to the butt, some yellow mustard, and some more rub. Then I throw on the butt indirect with a drip pan(to avoid fouling the lump). cook until 192F, foil, and put in a cooler filled with towels, at least an hour; but up to five. HTH.
