My first attempt at Butts. 28# for my work party.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

This was my first attempt at smoking a butt much less three at one time. 2 - 10+ and 1 - 7+. Over 28 lbs of Butt. I started with the King Sooper moist and tender. I used the EZ Rub from the sticky for two of them and Famous Daves for the other one. I let them sit over night and started them this morning about 0815. I used half Hickory and half Apple wood chunks. I used a Apple Peach passion fruit to mist them with. I kept the temperature between 225 and 250 depending on the wind and my finiky Camp Chef Smoke Vault. I didn't open the smoker for the first 4 hours. I ran the temp up to around 165 and then foiled them poured more juice in the bottom and then put them in the oven to finish them off. Each butt was between 195 and 198 when I decided to pull them and place them in a cooler to set for an hour. Then I unwrapped and pulled them. They just fell off the bone and pulled nicely. I'm hooked. I'm a Butt man. Hope the pick come across. Thank every one here who posted information on the art of butt smoking.

Nice! How do you like your smoke vault? I have been thinking about getting one for a while because I think it would be lower maintenance than what I have now

I do like the Smoke Vault. It is pretty low maint. The only problem I have is when you turn on the gas sometimes it does not want to work so you have to cut the gas off and wait a few Min. then turn the tank on a quarter turn and try it again. The company can explain it better than I can. other than that it works great. I just wish I had the 24 inch Vault.

 

The folks at work, my Wife and friends said it was Awesome. A definite hit. I will do it again for sure.

 

Thanks
