  1. Trying my first butt today it's a 4lb bone in, I injected it last night along with the rub and wrapped and into the frig for 12 hrs. Heated the smoker to 230 and in it went for sind 7.5 to 8 hrs or until 205 IT.
    prior to going into the smoker, will try to get a half way thru pic later today.
    9 hours later this is the result! IT was 206 pulled it out and let it rest and pulled.

  2. Man, that looks good! I'm about to start a butt thread myself today. Did it turn out fork tender or was it dry at 206 degrees? I plan to pull mine at 200 or until the probe slides through like warm butter.
  3. It pulled right apart...the bone wiggled right out nice and clean also.

    That looks good to me neighbor, a little more info would be nice,type smoker ,rub,injection liquid.

  5. I went very basic since it was my first butt I used onion powder garlic salt pepper and paprika. I injected with straight apple juice just to keep it moist. I used an mes 30 and add stated before around 9 hours to complete. I'm actually sitting on the beach with my little Weber grill heating the leftovers right now!

    Great looking PP--nice and moist and juicy.  Pretty impressive bark too, coming out of a MES.  Great job.
