Second Smoke - "Smoking Butt"! w Qview

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Ok i know it is the oldest of jokes around here but we have been making jokes all day here about my smokin butt.  This is my second meal on the Traeger.  Used jeffs directions of smoking first then covering in a foil pan then separating the broth.  Used "Butt Rub" for something different so that our butt didn't taste like our ribs which we did with jeff's rub.  REALLY SPECTACULAR! 


and the mrs. made home made buttermilk cornbread from a recipe on allrecipies that had 5000 great ratings.  it was out of this world.

thanks folks.   that pulled pork was so good noone in the house even thought about putting sauce on it.  i always wanted to do some smoking but lacked the knowledge until i found this place.  i am surprised that i can turn out really good stuff on the first try. nothing like standing on the backs of experts!  combine all the advice, rubs, brines, etc from this forum with a traeger and this is a hobby that anyone can have fun at.  


next i want to try a brisket.  i had a great brisket at the salt lick in austin a few weeks ago so i ordered their rub to try.  i heard someone else on the forum using it.  after that it is smoked turkey, traeger chicken, dino ribs, papa murphy's pizza and ultimately ... the fattie!

yeah we just finished it off today.  the au jus thing is really spectacular.  we made sandwiches and spooned a little of the juice into the bun like a french dip.  wow.  i can't imagine putting bbq sauce on this. 


for ccpropilot the details:


 - i coated it in the mustard with a little applejuice in it

 - i coated it with "butt rub" which is an off the shelf rub we bought at the store

 - i wrapped it in saran wrap overnight

 - 6am my wife threw it on the traeger sitting on the rack and started it on smoke.  that is a very low temp like 175 i think.

 - after 2 hours i transferred it to a foil pan and smoked it for 2 more hours

 - i covered the pan with foil, put a probe in it and turned the temp up to 240

 - we cooked it until it reached 210 internal

 - pulled it out of the pan, wrapped it in foil and put it in a cooler for an hour.  strained the fat out of the broth.

 - tore it up, poured the broth over it and ate it.

My 2nd attempt at smoking a butt on my Weber Kettle is about to go onto the grill.  I can only hope it turns out as well as your pictures show yours did.  Great job and thanks for the Q-view.  This site really has a wealth of information on it and I agree with you whole heartedly about "standing on the backs of experts".  No need to re-invent the wheel with all the tried and true results seen by the grill masters on this site.  439.gif
