    I usually average 7 1/2 + as of late with 8 lb butts. Once you get your 165º foil and raise temp from 250 to 280º. Got one friend that goes to 300º. They come out just fine. [​IMG]

    Don't tell me you didn't snap a fatty-view before ya ate it now did ya?

    Butts lookin good, don't forget to rest that butt for an hr or 2 to take it over the top on flavor and texture.

    Looking great.
     
  15. The fattie pics got posted in the Fattie forum. Wouldn't dare take a bite with out postin pics. The butt came out fantastic. Let it set in the cooler for just over an hour. Bone pulled out with no force n it shredded perfectly [​IMG] .







    Complete with the finishing sauce.

    Butts are pretty forgiving. Nice bark [​IMG]
     
  19. Thanks for the complements.

    Dan - thank you for the points.

    I 'member when I useta think it was kinda silly that people would post pix of their food when I was just lurkin round. But I can see now how this can be an obsession.
