View Full Version : Birthday butts and Sunday gravy with meatballs

02-10-2013, 07:16 PM
My first overnight seemed to be a success. Son turned three and guest list was about 20. Had 15lbs of butts that needed to be cooked.

Trimmed and rubbed on the egg with stoker set at 225

Didn't crack the lid til about 830am to take a look. About 165 . 75720

Wrapped and let them go til 190. Pulled and let them rest for about 45.

Shredded one and chopped the other. Light vinegar base just to add some a hint. Sauce served on the side since everyone has different tastes.

Bark was amazing although should have added more wood for smoking. 75722

2lbs homemade meatballs. Everything tastes better on the egg so when the recipe said brown in the oven at 450 I headed straight to the egg.


After about 20 minutes.


Into the sauce for simmer. I can say it was fantastic. The meatballs picked up great flavor and a hint transferred to the sauce. Will definitely do this again

Looks good! I like to simmer my meatballs in the sauce on my bsk after the meatballs have browned, gives it a little somethin' extra.

I wrap also and sometimes I wish I had more smokey flavor. So I have been adding some chips along the way. Looks great, I have 2 butts resting right now.

Everything does taste better on the EGG, Egglishis, as I like to say. Great looking pork and meatballs!
