Here is a couple 9 lb'ers I cooked over the holidays. I forgot to get any pics when I pulled from teh egg, which was at 3:30 am. Apparently I got a couple turbo butts. Evreything was and is calibrated so they just cooked fast, but I have to say they were really good. Here are a few cooks from when I put them on and in the nachos.

    That looks very good. I'm guessing from your handle that you are in Alabama. Where abouts? I have two kids in the dothan area.

    You pyrex dish doesn't get black from being on the grill? Do you do the nachos direct or indirect? At what temp?

    I live in north Alabama, about 4 hrs from dothan. How do they like living in dothan?

    I actually assemble the dish after the pork is pulled, so the pyrex dish doesn't go in the egg.

    So you melt the cheese and heat it all up in an oven?
  • You should try the nachos in the egg next time, because cheese takes on the smokey flavor really well. Wrap the bottom of your dish in tinfoil, or use a throwaway aluminum pan. I sit mine on top of the pizza stone to protect the dish, too.

    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    Roll Tide, that's one of my favorite uses for left over pulled pork. Looks yummy! :)

    Sometimes I do put it all together in AF pan, but this was a spur of the moment decision.
  • Roll TideRoll Tide Posts: 505
    Lol. Interesting how that worked out.

    Our BBQ Teams sells these at contests, we usually sell about 1000 plates each weekend. People can not get enough of them. Really easy to make.
