    Picked up a 6 butts on sale last week for .98 cent a pound.  This one here was just over 6 lbs.

    Trimmed a lot of the fat cap off because I've found with the last few I've done they are plenty moist and have enough internal fat.  Plus I think with hourly spritzing and foiling at 165*, it can't really help but be moist.  Mustard on!

    Rubbed and double wrapped in plastic wrapped for a rest in the fridge until morning.

    As much as my head hurt this morning I went ahead and got up to get my butt smoken'!

    Started spritzing just about 2 hours in.  This was the 4 hour spritz.

    At 5 hrs and 20 minutes in she hit 165* and pulled.

    Spritzed up (3 to 1 apple juice & cider vinegar) and for some reason I thought I'd throw a little brown sugar in the mix.  Double wrapped her in foil and put back in for probably another 4 hrs until she hits 205*.

    Thank you Pineywoods.  We're just going with the cream cheese and sharp cheese today....if the wife will hurry up can get back with the bacon! lol  I want to order a holder so we can start stuffing them instead of doing the boats.

    It was sure nice finishing this up in just over 8 hrs @205*!  But now I've overeaten and can't move! lol
