Smoked 2 butts for the weekend. Started on Friday night at 9 pm and they got pulled Saturday at 4:30 pm. Over 19 hrs for two 6+ lb butts. I didnt do any foiling, which was a first, and I like this way alot better. Had a good bark on the outside.. Smoked on my MES40 using hickory chips. I was pretty happy with the results. Will be having Dutch's beans to go with this..
