    With the Adjustable Rig you can put the spider below with the small CI grate, and the half circle grate on top. Works perfect!

    I like that setup man. Seems like they make a half moon CI grate as well.
    We have a TruValue HW store near here and the owner is a big time egg head, going to have to stop by this weekend and do some shopping. The guys prices are really good as well.

    Have a great weekend

    Wow, I just stepped into the cafe and found this. I Love the ceramic cookers - I personally have a #7 Kamado (www.kamado.com) and have been using it since around 2001. I love the way it is able to smoke for hours without any intervention and keep the temp at the right level. I will definately be back when I am not at work

    A couple of guys at work just purchased a BGE. After seeing some of the food pics here, it has me wanting one too.

    I didn't brine this one. I just coated it with mustard and rub, then covered it in plastic rap overnight in the fridge. Not sure I will do anything different next time, other than try a different rub and/or smoke chips.

    Did it come out nice and moist? Thats been my issue as of late, but I tend to forget some of the requirements like a pan with liquid in it below the butt. Its definately a learning process.

    It was very moist indeed. Pork Butt is pretty forgiving. The key is to cook it long enough to be tender (190 deg, +/-10). There is plenty of fat content inside the meat to keep it moist.

    Here is a great article on Pork Butt in general:

    And don't forget these recipes more specific to the Egg:

    Thanks for the links,

    I generally shoot for 200 even, but have had a few get a little dry on me. I'll read up on the links (already had the wiz's site bookmarked) and keep on smoking.

    Ever smoked a fattie (no, not that kind), its a dry rubbed sausage roll, like Jimmy Dean or such, I hear they are yummy and plan to try one soon.

    Cheers

    P.S. Whoo Hooo, I think this is my 100th post and its not even about flashlights, go figure.

    Try shooting for a slightly lower temp, 190-195. Also remember the temp will rise (5-10 deg) during the resting period, depending on how long you let it rest.

    Never smoked a fattie before, but I heard they're good. It's on my list also.

    Good luck with your future cooks, and feel free to post some pics.

    This looks awesome! I googled it and it's coming to the UK soon! Oh no, this is another thing I didn't know existed but now can't live without. I'm sure there are other good charcoal grills I can get, but I like the big green egginess of it all.

    It's after midnight and after checking out this thread I am so hungry for some smoked BBQ. I have admired the BGE for a few years not but other things have always seemed to take priority in my check book.

    I have a Kamado, but I don't use it enough. My favorite is ribs.

    Here is a turkey I "kooked".









    As you can see, they are very similar to the BGE.
