    7.9# bone-in boston butt rubbed with the rest of the billbo's famous i had left.  Rubbed it in the afternoon and stored in the fridge till putting it on the wsm at 2:30 am.  I got to sleep at 3:30 woke up at 5:00 and 7:00 to fiddle with the vents before getting up for the day at 9:00. 

    Thing froze at 160F for EVER before breaking the plateau only to get stuck at 170F!  Storm was rolling in so after over 11 hrs on the wsm I wrapped it in foil and put it in the oven (still only at 177F).  After a few more hours it finally got to 192F and I gave in and took it out (was gonna go 195-200) at 4:45pm!!  14 hours!  Thank goodness I didnt try to get up early instead of doing it before sleep. 

    All I can say is AMAZING.  When I went to pull it I couldnt even get it out of the foil in less than 4 peices, fell apart and was juicy and tender.  I used SoFlaQuer's finishing sauce and made a carolina mustard/vinegar sauce along with my standard BBQ sauce for "dipping". 

    Im sooooo glad I found this hobby!

    Forgot about action shots, just snapped a little before and after.

    That looks great! and Welcome! I'm fairly new myself.  Butt is one of my favorite things to cook, just because of the process and transformation it makes... and dont that make you feel good when that thing just falls apart! 

    Happy Smoking!
