2nd butt coming up!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

hey gang,

got my second butt going into the smoker tomorrow BY REQUEST!!!

 

-hahah just wanted to share that icon_cool.gif

 

any way i changed it up this time and got the bone in shoulder from the local butcher instead of the big box store so should be a much better butt

 

6 am start time- 9am-1pm at the office- then home to finish off the more than likely 16hr adventure!!!

Hmmmmm.

 When it comes to butts , i buy the cheapest i can find. Pork is not graded like beef and i really can't see where there would be that much difference in the .99 /lb double packs and a hand cut by my local butcher . maybe a little better trim on the fat but not enough to pay the difference.

hahah didn't think of that oh well-

 

price difference was less than 3.00 so not too worried about it-

and it look more oficial coming from the butcher shop wrapped in paper than styrofoam and plastic icon_lol.gif

The only difference I could see would be whether or not it was enhanced. I always try to get minimally processed butts and ribs. The ribs I can tell a big difference in taste. The enhanced ones seem too salty and hammy.

alright well butt#2 turned out very well and was met with some very happy people-

 

no q-view as the digital camera is officially KIA -hunting/water incident icon_sad.gif

 

but after x-mas there should be another one in teh house somewhere and with more butts /ribs to smoke should be a q view overload on New Years!
