I am going to do my first pork butt this weekend. The plan is to rub and refr for 24 hours
put in smoker (MES30) and apply smoke for about 4 hours at which time I will more than likely fall asleep and get up Sun morning to a pork butt that is hopefully finished. Questions:I will be smoking in a foil pan to catch drippings, do I go fat cap up or down and what do cross cuts in the fat do? Is this something I should do? Any other suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
