Stacking up the egg...and I flunked geometry! Any thoughts?

edited 6:37PM in EggHead Forum
long story short is more people are heading to the lake tomorrow than we thought...I've got 12 lbs of butt, 8 lbs of brisket, 3 racks of ribs today, then a bunch of sausage tomorrow morning early...[p]Materials wise i have a Large egg, pizza stone for indirect, drip pan, grill extender, and extra grill grates.[p]My thought is start the grill this morning with the following scenario at 225-250 grill temp[p] Brisket
Butt Butt
Grill extender
Drip Pan
Pizza stone
Regular BGE grill grate[p]After 8 hours or so lay the ribs in. Cook for 4 more I insane or does this sound doable?[p][p][p]

    Ohio Boy in Charlotte,[p]Really don't need the pizza stone. Using the drip pan gives you indirect. Good luck.

    Ohio Boy in Charlotte,[p]Depending on the weights, that is going to fill up that egg. Take a picture, I would love to see all that on the egg. I am doing 3 10 lb butts tomorrow and I based on my experience, I can shoehorn one more butt in there. I do use a plate setter, and that will give you 3-4 more inches. Also, I would put the brisket on the bottom so that the pork fat will run over the brisket. Be sure to measure the temps of all that meat as you go and pull off each piece as they get done. It is unlikely they will all be done at the same time due to temp differences between the grid and the top of the pile.

    Ohio Boy in Charlotte, first of all what is an Ohio Boy doing in Pittsburgh South? To answer your questions, some other questions have to be asked. Assuming you started at 9 am today (brisket and butts) and everything works right, probably going to be done about midnite or so. Are you going to pull the meat and refigerate? I would do ribs and then about 4pm today put the brisket and butts on , hopefully they would be done early am. Pack in hot cooler wrapped in aluminum foil and hot towels and pull at the lake. Adjust these times as to when you want the food ready.
    Good Luck

  • Steeler Fan,
