Smoking a smaller butt.

  1. Smoking a smaller Pork Butt. It's approximately 3.5 pounds.



    I'm using some apple, celery, onion, and apple juice in the water pan.


    Hopefully the smaller roast won't take too long. I didn't get started until 10:00 a.m.

  2. looks good so far
  3. Hit the stall approx. 3 hours in.


    The internal temp was 154 degrees F. Wrapped it in foil and added a some hot water to the water pan. Still smokin'.

    LOL, I think the first butt I ever did was around 6 lbs. Took over 10 hours. I can turn out an 8 1/2 lber in 9 hours now.

    Good luck.
  5. I wrapped it in foil and went to the store. I got back a little less than 2 hours later and the internal temp was 205 degrees F. I was super tender and very juicy, but there was no bark. The outer most layer was tender and juicy too. I gotta say, I think I like it this way. Unfortunately, a lot more of the outer edges of the Butt were eaten during the pulling process than normal.

    Just right !!!!Nice job !
  19. [​IMG] Yup! I'll be eating my last sandwich from this batch today. [​IMG]

    I want to smoke more often and smoking smaller portions isn't as expensive. This way I can smoke 2 times for the price of one.
