ABT's and Fatties

Hi, Gang --

Been pretty slack with the Egg this winter....but, I am pulling it out to do ABT's and a fatty today. I'm bringing the chow to a friend's house to watch some basketball later. So, I am a little rusty -- let's talk about time and temperature. If I recall, I typically cook fatties and ABT's around 250-275 dome. At this temp, how long will it take everything to cook? I am interested in pulling everything off at about the same time.

    I did these I think around 300F indirect, can't recall the time but I would guess a 1.5 to 2 hours. The abt's will be fine going a little longer to wait for the fattie to get ready.

    Thanks -- is your setup inverted plate setter with drip pan? That's my standard.
