PM me for all your Custom Polishing and Now Powder Coating Needs
I want a Big Green egg but damn they are expensive. Any alternatives out there that are worth a damn and cost less?
I especially like the setups that let you monitor and set up the cooking temp via cell phone. I'd like to be able to start a cook before work and come home to perfect meat.
So tomorrow I'll be doing my first pork shoulder. Its small, just 3.7 lbs. This is the first year that I have stepped out of the burger and dog box into some real cooking. I've done a good job of three sets of ribs at about 3-3.5 hrs with just a simple rub but this knob of pork has me worried. I gave it a simple rub tonight with some hot and sweet stuff (think brown sugar and cayenne) and foiled it in the fridge. I'm thinking 4.5-5 hrs at around 250-275? This will be on charcoal but I dont have any chips to toss in (I may make a trip to pick some up in the a.m.). I hate to think that I could waste this, so any suggestions?

Of course, if I had the $ to drop on a BGE, I'd do it. It's just a better device. Holds heat better and gets super hot!
