Got the egg loaded up with lump and a starter cube. Picking up 3 8lb. butts on the way home to do an all nighter.(when I was younger an all nighter meant something else) Going to use the number 3 ring instead of the usual number 2 due to the colder weather. We are having a New Years Eve party at church and I am going to impress them with my pulled pork. They have already had the pork tenderloin from the egg and were quite impressed. Hope everyone has a good New Years. Dont forget the black-eyed peas on New Years Day to make sure you have a prosporous 2003. Pigtail


  • Pigtail,
    I take it the #2 or #3 must give you about 250° - 275° dome temperature with the temp rings? My check is in the mail so I can sleep better during the overnighters.
    How far open do you leave the bottom damper when using the #2 or 3?

  • MrCoffee,
    Leave the bottom vent open all the way. #2 will give me about 225-230 but with the cooler weather I will opt for the #3. I really like them and I think you will be well pleased with them. They take the guess work out of doing an all nighter. Good luck with them. Pigtail

  • Pigtail,
    Thanks for the information and that is exactly what I wanted to hear. The rings sound like a real winner and I can hardly wait for them to arrive. First up will be a couple of butts and a brisket if I can find one with fat and without the corned beef salt. Did I mention salt? Never had a piece of meat so salty![p]Terry
