Overnight Butts

Discussion in 'Pork' started by chef boyarista, Jan 12, 2016.

  1. I started my first smoke with my a-maze-n pellet smoker. I'm about three hours in and it's chugging along just fine with TBS aplenty. I put the butts in a foil pan with a rack in the bottom with sliced onions and garlic underneath to mix with the jus. In about one more hour I'll put my probe in the bottom butt, take a good long nap and check them both with my instant thermometer before I foil. I managed to get them for $1.75 a pound at costco and dipped into my rainy day funds for 'em. Thanks El Nino! Anyhow, I'll definitely take tons of pictures for you all.

    Can't wait to see the final result!
     
  5. Thanks folks! So far so good. I had to relight the AMNPS early in the a.m. but it only had half a row to go so I dont think they missed out on much smoke, so now they're foiled and waiting until they hit the 195* mark.
    So far so good!

    Looks awesome!!!
     
  7. And done! They've rested, they're out of the jus and now I just need to wait to skim the fat and pull, pull, pull! Since they were boneless I tied the butts and put em in the pans cut side up so all those nooks and crannies had juices pooled inside. I have to hand it to you all, I went to the search bar a couple times for help and everywhere I looked I learned a lot more than I wanted to. Hope you like the pics!

    Are you going to pull them now that they are rested?

  9. Most definitely! The one on the right went straight to my neighbors house whole while it was still hot and the other I mixed with my finishing sauce after pulling. I even threw in some italian sausage I made the other day to get on their good side, haha.
