Well as some of you know I finished building a UDS last week just in time for Easter. I did 12 racks of baby backs for a family get together and it was a huge success. This weekend I decided to do my first pork butt. I apologize in advance for not taking any pictures of the first butt. I just didn't have the camera out. I will post some q-view of it when I pull it. I will also try to get a few shots of the second butt. I picked up two butts, one 7.5 lb. and one 5.5 lb. I made the decision last night that I would not do them at the same time but one after the other since I have only one ET-73 to monitor internal temps. I fired up the UDS around 10:30 and put the larger butt on @ 11:45pm. Once I stabilized the temps I went to bed around 2am with the alarm set to go off when it hit 159*. I was awoken by the ET-73 beeping right at 6am. I went outside foiled it and set the temp alarm for 200. I stayed up until 7am to make sure the temps were stable once again. The alarm went off at 9:45am so I got up removed the butt, added another layer of foil, wrapped it in an old towel and put it in a cooler. That's where it is as I type this. I figure I'll wait until 12pm to take it out and pull it. The second butt went on right at 10am and has already reached 80* with a steady smoker temp of 225* with only 2-3 fluctuations. Man I love this UDS! On a side note this is also the first time I'm using the Maverick ET-73. All I can say is it freaking rocks! Very easy to set up and has worked perfectly. I was a bit apprehensive about getting one given the mixed reviews I've read online but I would have no reservations recommending one.
