    Just stuck it with the prob, IT is 154* after 5 1/2 hours

    I should state that I brined this butt in a mixture of water, apple cider vinegar, salt and flavors. Used my own rub and I think I used to much sugar as it's starting to burn already and it has a while to go yet.
    I've been trying to keep my smoker temps around 230*, more like wishing because I'm having trouble keeping my temps down. It's been averaging about 245*, I went looking for a needle valve to mod the propane line but could not find one :dunno

    That looks great, gonna be tasty for sure ! Just my opinion, but 245* should be fine ! Enjoy your smoke !

    Thank you! I would love if it stayed at 245* but it has gotten up to 261* and I'm sure with the sun getting hotter so will the smoker. But what do ya do? Thanks again!

    Thank you :beercheer:
     
  12. Don't worry about the smoker temp.....IT is what you are after.  I don't think that butt looks burned at all.  I like a dark bark that mixes with all the juicy inner meat.  Makes a great PP. 

    Go Boise State!!!
