    I'm doing one right now, using the Big Time BBQ rub that you can find in the recipes on the website.

    I just put my butt on the egg. No worse for the wear.

    Try the Elder Ward method posted on the Naked Whiz's site ...... I'm fix'in four of them this very moment. :side: Good Luck with yours :)
  • Use your favorite rub. I often use Tonys, Bad Byrons Butt Rub or one of the Dizzy Pig rubs. It may take 14-18 hours for that butt to cook. Figure about 1.5 hours per pound + or - at 250 degrees. Time is not important cook until internal meat temp is 190-200. Clean the Egg out real good before you start. Then with a full load of lump with the larger pieces on the bottom and let er rip.

    Chris Schlesinger's basic BBQ rub recipe. You can't go wrong with this one.
    Recipe From : The Thrill of the Grill by Chris Schlesinger
    2 Tablespoons salt
    2 Tablespoons sugar
    2 Tablespoons brown sugar
    2 Tablespoons ground cumin
    2 Tablespoons chili powder
    2 Tablespoons black pepper -- freshly cracked
    1 Tablespoon cayenne pepper
    4 Tablespoons paprika
    All you do is throw them together and mix them well.

    Do what he says. Just remember a butt will hit a temp of 145-165 and stay in that range for a long time before advancing higher. We call it a plateau and each butt seems to hold at a slightly different temp for different lengths. Just don't get nervous
