Small Butt

Discussion in 'Pork' started by nola saints smoker, May 11, 2010.

  1. Had to take a day off of work as my 3 year old a/c needed repair. Luckily it was under warranty. So I figured might as well smoke a butt. It's on the small side, about 4.5 lbs. Injected with a mix of apple juice, rub, worcestershire sauce & then rubbed w/mustard and jeff's altered rub.

    Put it on the KEG at 7:30 with a temp of 250-265. Internal temp is 118*. Will be doing this butt w/o foil and will pull at 205*. Using a mix of hickory and apply wood.

    Will post more later.

  5. Thanks GLGOODWIN, it cooks awesome. Maintains temps very well. Only problem is that it cannot handle tons of food at a time. It's more than enough for the wife and I and friends.

    Here's the finished product. Did not foil. Pulled at 205 and tented for an hour. I never did a butt w/o foiling so i was unsure if it would be dry. I was surprised, although not as juicy as foiling. The bark was amazing. I actually like it both ways.
