Thought I would knock out some butts for the Giant game tomorrow. Ran to the depot and got a couple of beautiful bone in butts. Rinsed them off real good and dried with paper towels. I coat them with a wee bit of extra virgin olive oil. Had two rubs so thought I would try them both. On the right is North Main BBQ rub from Eullis, Texas. Heard about it when we were in St. John and bought a whole bunch. I add a little of their spicy rub for some kick at the end. Nice bunch of fellows down there. On the left is Big Green Egg rub . My wife loves this rub, has a great mix of sweet and spicy.
I like to let them sit a bit and get to room temp. The rest is easy. Set the Egg up for indirect cooking, load in some apple wood and set the digi Q for 250. I like to put them fat side down for the first 2 hours then flip them for the next five or six.
These were big boys, 8 1/2 lbs each so it should take around 12 to 14 hours total. Will flip them back to fat side down later and start spritzing with some apple juice, apple cider vinegar mixture to finish the bark. Nothing left to do except putting on the cleats and and downing some yak milk. Peace!!! Go Big Blue!!!!!!!
