    Got a nice 11 pound boston butt for 2.39 a pound. Gave it a dry rub and put it in the fridge, will go on the smoker when I get home tonight. Also, my replacement maverick 733 came in today, and it works flawlessly. Qview to come

    Question: I've had the butt in for about 20 minutes, the temp read 36 when I put it on, and it's only at 37. Is this normal, or did I put my meat probe in a fat pocket?

    Obligatory shot of my favorite toy
     
  6. I would think that would be pretty much normal. I don't put the probe in until the meat has been on for about four hours. Also I take the meat out of the fridge an hour or so before smoking. Ernie

    Yeah it's going good now, up to 72 degrees. I put it straight on the smoker from the fridge.
     
  8. Are you planning to foil? Just wondering as I usually foil, but I think I might try a butt sans foil...I don't think I've ever smoked a butt without foiling. Anywho...please post some q-view when you finish her up!

    Leo I actually just foiled at 165. I'll make sure to post some qview
     
  10. Looking good so far. I never foil.....try without one time. Mine always have a great bark all around. I dont like mushing up my bark with overly moist bark.

    At the finish line. Haven't had a single stall. Padron I plan on it, this was my first butt so I wanted to play it safe.

    It's stalled at 199, going in the cooler to rest as soon as it hits 200
