Cooking a Boston Butt While At Work with the Flame Boss

So here I sit at 10:42 AM on a Saturday.  At work.  Again.  But there is something different and exciting about today – a certain Magic in the Air.  When I get home, I will have a perfectly cooked Boston Butt from my Big Green Egg!  With the Flame Boss, I can literally monitor and control the cook on my Big Green Egg – FROM WORK!

I busted out the Flame Boss for its maiden voyage earlier this week.  I did a trial run on a chicken, and now I’m ready for a longer cook, and the Boston Butt is an easy way to start.  To be honest, installing and familiarizing myself with the Flame Boss was a lot easier than I thought.  It literally took me about 1 minute or less to hook up the fan plate to my XL Big Green Egg, and the fan just sets right into the square hole in the plate.  Close the bottom air flow gauge and you are good to go!  The spots where the cords plug into the unit are clearly labeled, too.  And one benefit of the Flame Boss over the Big Green Egg Brand Dual Probe Thermometer is that the pit temp “probe” on the Flame Boss is a clip.  Just clips right to the grate, where as with the Dual Probe, you can get confused as to which is which.

It took me another 5-10 minutes to program in my wifi network and password into the Flame Boss Unit, and to create an account at MyFlameBoss.com.  Then I entered in the unique code for my Flame Boss, and Voila! Setup complete.  Now I can monitor and control my cook on my Big Green Egg at home, while sitting here writing this blog from 10 miles away.  And the Flame Boss is doing all the work!

It took me a little while to work up the nerve to spend $300+ on the Flame Boss, but I can already tell that it will be worth every single penny.  With a two year old and normal life and home duties, anything I can do to save some time helps.  Technology to the rescue again!  While the Big Green Egg is a more involved grilling experience than a gas grill, the food quality is WELL worth the time investment.  But with the Flame Boss as my cooking assistant, getting great tasting food off my Big Green Egg just got a lot easier!
