Getting my BUTT in gear (Heavy Q-View)

Discussion in 'Pork' started by padronman, Aug 6, 2014.

  1. Well I woke up this morning at 5AM to get my Butt going.......then ummmmm the snooze alarm went off once......errrrr ok like 6 times.  So at 6AM I finally climbed out of bed [​IMG]   Great thing is I am not on a time crunch as this won't be used till Saturday. 

    Twin Butts got some more rub on them

    I can taste it NOW.

    Bye bye for now!!! 

    Each is 7.5 lbs. so this will be a long smoke.  I am using a mix of Pecan and Cherry this time.

    It is just hard to beat pecan smoke on anything!

    Lookin good so far!
  3. Thanks Foam.  Pecan is my wood of choice with Cherry as a close second. 
  4. Butt went in with IT of 35F and now sits at 97F [​IMG]   ONLY a 107 to go LOL

    Still smells so damn good in the backyard.......nothing like it I tell ya

    Looking good! Someone should capture that smell and make a candle. Love it!Thumbs Up
  10. I know right?  Im definitely stalled. Only climbed 3 degrees in the last hour and a half.  Not to worry though......another beer is at hand!
  11. I thought the same thing yesterday. I stalled. Had a beer. Then 10 hours later & 14 beers the stall ended.. lmao

    It was fun but my head hurts now... lol

  12. Damn I know that feeling [​IMG]
  13. 176F and all is well. Smoke still wisping out of the ol #2

  14. For the first timers wanting time info......

    I am now at 175F, it dropped a degree from 37 minutes ago. Now officially in the stall.  I would imagine in about 3 hours I will be coming out of it. 


  15. Deep in the stall now.  Looking Barkalicious

    Looking good! I like cherry and pecan south inhale to do a 50/50 mix! So good! Just vac packed my pulled pork I did Saturday, gonna make some fine Pazole once the hatch chiles get here!!!
  17. I couldn't stand the smell coming from my backyard any longer so I found some Vac sealed PP from last smoke and I am making Pulled Pork Nacho's for dinner.  Will be posting that too [​IMG]

    Damn stall is still in full effect......wait.......we seem to be moving up.  2 hours at 175F and now I am seeing 178F  YES!!!  [​IMG]

    What temp is you're smoker at? Did you inject or brine at all?
  19. Been running at 240 or so all day.  No injection.....just a good ol dry rub (of my making)
