    a couple of firsts here... cooking a butt on the UDS and actually finding something around here that will make pulled pork...its really a picnic...hey its still pork..lol

    i am going to be doing an all night cook tonight. it will go into the smoker as soon as it quits raining a bit.
    today is a test to see what my smoker can do in 52* weather with rain.
    wood for smoking will be apple,maple and oak(like usual..lol)

    Looks great!

    Not that it matters, as what you had was a superior piece of meat, but that looks to me more like the butt portion of an uncured ham. Rear leg vs. front shoulder. No harm, just a better piece of meat to start with.

    I've done several butts on the UDS now and I've come to the conclusion it's one of the most simple, effective pieces of equipment I own.

    Again, great job!

    around here it is easier to find a "picnic" cut... if i can find a real boston butt, it is usually so small and trimmed that it is not worth it to me...

    it turned out very well, still needs some tweaking but overall everybody loved it...now to find a couple of recipes using pulled pork..lol
