Well the Digi Q II and my wife made some great pulled pork. The 2 bone-in butts took 19 hours and ten minutes.
Here are some pics of the butts and the leftover lump.

When I opened the bag of Royal Oak (Argentinian Wood)from Restaurant Depot the pieces were huge. Most of them were fist size or twice that big. I did put the big pieces on the bottom and lots of small pieces. I also used Apple & Pecan wood. I have tons of lump left. Even I am amazed. :cheer:



This is after 19 + hours....

    Pecan is my favorite smoke for butts.

    Those look nice Kim.

    Do I get a sammie from your take on that cook?

    Now you are cooking.Save some of that large lump for future cooks.I purchased some lump that the whole bag contained huge hunks.Seemed great at the time but I found out that it took forever to get the stuff up for high temperature cooking.The dealer that I purchased it from sells those big rigs that you need a truck to haul it.I was a customer of his for about two years and guess what? He became a Primo owner.After talking about the lump sizes he did recommend using the mix of large and medium for our ceramic cookers. I had purchased about 10 forty pounds of that big stuff and later sorted it out to save the big chunks to put on the first layer in the egg.

    look real good do you have to be a member to buy from them or do they sell retail

  • FidelFidel Posts: 10,172
    You have to be a member, but membership is free and all you need to get approved is a business license - you don't need to be in the food business.

    Takes about 3 minutes to get signed up. You can even fax it in and they will have your card waiting for you when you show up.

    Best meat prices anywhere. I get foil, gloves, drip pans, and all sorts of supplies there.

    It is worth a look if you ask me.

    Great pair of butts!! Going to eat it all or freeze some of it?

    I have always used hickory but have recently "found" pecan. I want to try it under a butt. I used it on my roast beef Tuesday and loved the results.

    That sure is some moist looking pulled pork. I would think it tasted great.

  • AzScottAzScott Posts: 309
    That place looks great! My local flyer on their site is showing pork but for $1.11 a pound. Thats cheap.
  • Hey Kim looks like you having as much fun with your small egg as I am. You just can't beat the small. You can cook a lot more on a small then you think and use so much less coal. What can I say I am cheap. LOL

    Was thinking of picking up a mini and leave it in the camper but did not realize they coast that much for a mini so that idea is out the window.
  • vidalia1vidalia1 Posts: 7,092
    I see a mini in our may be a long way off but at least we are talking about it.... :woohoo:
  • FidelFidel Posts: 10,172
    You should use mine sometime Kim - it will put you over the top.

    I love my mini....
