1st butt in new GOSM-Qview

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Smoked this Boston butt yesterday in my new GOSM 3405BGW. It's quite different than what I was used to with my modded ECB. Didn't get the bark I hoped to and had to work at getting smoke more than usual. The results were still tasty though.thumb1.gif

Thanks Mdboatbum. The wife isn't too keen on the bark texture anyway.

It sure looks good. How long was it in the smoker? Did you foil it? What temp did you smoke it at? These things all affect the bark. Of course if the wifey doesn't like bark then you better stick with what you have. Like Rap says it has awesome color.

I do know what you mean. Here is something you can try. The reason the ECB worked so well is the heat is really trapped up top due to the dome. Now my GOSM, charcoal to propane conversion, has a vent up top, so I lose some heat that way. Yours may not, but still it seems to be the hottest part of the GOSM, so use the top rack and even increase the heat level for the first hour or so. Maybe an extra 25º or so. This will help with the bark formation. Remember the sugar in the rub helps, so add a fresh coat before you put it on and no spritzing until around 2 1/2 hours into the smoke.

11.5 hours on the smoker. I did NOT foil (that's why I was expecting more bark). I also didn't use any sugar in my rub... Temp was 235-245 depending on if it was in the shade or sun. I may be able to convert the wife over to enjoying the bark... eventually.

Thanks Flash, great advice! I'm still working on my own rub and I was a bit cautious to use sugar because I didn't want to burn it. Is brown sugar preferred over white or does it matter?

 

FYI I get called "yankee" often. My wife is from Alabama and I'm from Ohio. They hate it when my Q is better than theirs too! biggrin.gif

You may want to try turbinado sugar, Walmart has it. The box say's "Sugar in the Raw".

Thanks Al. Will do.

Yeah,stick with the brown sugar.

 

Al does that turbinado sugar only come in those small crystals? We've had problems with it not breaking apart so well in the rubs?

 Well don't take it badly. I was born in New York but kidnapped by my parents at the age of 3 months and brought to Florida. Still some of the good ol boys around here refer to me as a Yankee also and I have lived here for 58 years and 9 months.

Looks great, I'm not much of a bark person myself either.
