  1. Threw a 7-1/2 pound butt in at 6am and finally just hit 160*... gonna be a long day... LOL

    I had been running the GOSM at about 235*, so upping it to about 250* now... hopefully we'll get a chance to try it out today [​IMG]

    It looks and smells wonderful though.

    Here's a shot before going on the grill... trying out Jeff's rub...

    And here's what it looked like a few minutes ago just prior to wrapping...

    Will post again when it decides it's ready to be pulled [​IMG]

    Looking good Bill. Put my 7lb butt on at 6:15 this morn. It is now at 169. I've had a couple stalls with it. It'll be worth it though. Just hang in there.
  4. The missus is talking about getting a pizza to hold us over...

    I'm holding out tho. I figure she'll have a few slices less space in her stomach when the pork is ready [​IMG]

    "What? You're full already? Don't worry, I'll finish the pork for ya!"

    The same thing happened to me last weekend. I also had some bad weather. I wrapped in foil and put in the oven at 250 for an hour and then an hour in the cooler...fantastic.....hang in there...[​IMG]

    Looks really good so far! Jeff's rub is my staple with pulled pork, very tasty stuff. What kind of wood did you use to kiss that butt? [​IMG]

    Good luck with the pulling! That's the best part ... [​IMG]
  7. Pretty much straight hickory today, but there were a couple mesquite chunks in there as well.

    It's at 174*, but even if it's not done til midnight, that just means some nice grub and late-night movies... LOL

    Must have been a day for slow butts. My 5 pounder took about 12 hours from start to finish but it sure was yummy.
