This weekend I'm planning to smoke my first butt for a family dinner Sunday night. I will also be doing up a few slabs of spare ribs to go with it which I've done before and i'm not concerned about. The butt however has me a little scared. I'm planning to smoke the butt saturday pull it and re-heat it on sunday. I will smoke the ribs sunday afternoon. This gives me PLENTY of time to wait out the butt if I need to. Also gives me time to throw on a backup brisket if I need to...
Plan so far for the butt:
slather with yellow mustard
apply a rub yet to be determined
wrap in plastic and fridge over night.
Early saturday morning start smoking
smoke for 1 1/2 hour per lb till it hits 200 IT.
To Foil or Not to Foil?
To Spritz or not to Spritz? ( like to spritz my ribs with apple juice and cider vinegar)
I've narrowed down the two rubs I think I would like the best does anyone have an opinion either way?
