Wow is all I can say about the Egg keeping temp.
I started my butt at 9p.m.with the egg at 235 Grid.
Later on about 12p.m. grid was around 211 so that is when I went to bed. Woke up around 4 a.m. with both mavericks(et7-and et73)showing three dashes for all temps. My heart sank jumped out of bed and ran to the egg to my relief the egg was still perfect at 211 from what the sending unit said.butts were at 175 and 180.
After fourteen hours butts hit 207and 205 took them off and pulled.
I Love cooking on the Egg. Next loand slo a brisket.
Why did I ever think an Egg was too expensive :blush:
I have to learn to put pics up maybe I can figure it out somehow these butts are beautiful!!
Who cares I'll post where I want

    Looks good and also wondr why did not get an Egg sooner.......I know why I did not never heard of the things until 2 months ago when I was watching Pitmasters. That show cost me some coin. LOL Well worth it.

    Been wanting one for years, but just never could pull the trigger because of the price. My bride finally surprised me last Christmas....she hasn't lit the stove since..........sneaky little devil. But, I've loved every minute of it. ;)

    Oops premature send :blush:
    You also need to change the size in photobucket from small to medium and then [img size=450P][/img]. Be sure and remove the red "P" to see picture. I have found that if I use my iphone to upload pictures i always upload as "actual size" to pohotbucket
