I always rushed my butts cause lack of time and attention span. Never had one that I could pull, always had to slice. Now that I have my GMG Daniel Boone pellet pooper, I figured Id give it a shot. Rubbed down yesterday morning. Dropped it in the smoker at 1AM and went to bed. Just checked it and its sitting pretty at 188 degrees 9 hours in. No foil by the way, didn't even inject it, trying to keep it simple.

Turned out great! Super tender, moist and the bone pulled clean. I figured it would be a bit on the dry side since I didn't inject it, but it wasn't at all. Didn't get the bark that I was wanting, I used that "sugar in the raw" stuff instead of brown sugar in my rub since I wasn't planning on foiling during the smoke. Pulled at 200, wrapped and let it rest for about an hour. Pictures are with my phone so they aren't very good.
