Recipe by: The Frugal Gourmet 'Cooks American' Cut the lid off the pumpkin just as you would for a jack-o-lantern. Remove the seeds. Mix the remaining ingredients together with the exceptions of the butter. Fill the pumpkin with this mixture and top with the butter. Cover with the pumpkin lid and place in a baking pan. Bake at 350F degrees for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until the mixture has set like a custard. Serve from the pumpkin at your table, scraping some of the meat from the pumpkin with each serving.
I saw this at the first Florida BBQ Fest (before it became an Egg Fest) and it was presented by Florida Bob. I made it the following year, using two smaller pumpkins, instead of the large one.
Cooked them indirect on firebricks at 350° with some hickory for about 2 hours.
