My internal temp is 170 right now. This would be the time to foil if that's what people do. I didn't inject this thing with any thing.
Hurry, let me know!
Depends on what you need to do. If you are stretching it 5+ hours, I would drop the temp to 225 and let it get to 190-195, then foil, wrap in a towel and put in a cooler till I was ready to pull it.
I've had buts in the 8-9 lb range take 6 hrs at 250, so that is not surprising
I too have an OKJ Longhorn offset - so far I have smoked three runs of spare ribs. I am wanting to do a Butt next, for pulled pork.
Did you do any modifications? I am going to try raising my fire grate a little , with bolts and nuts. It is hard for me to keep temp for a full 6 hour period when doing ribs, that last hour is tough mainly because of ash buildup choking the fire. Guess I should get a metal bucket as well, so I can scrape hot ashes out into it as the hours tick by...
I have foiled before in one of those foil pans. Hit it with some apple juice just before foiling the top. You are right it kills the bark, but the juices you get are to die for! I like to add them back after skimming off the fat to the pulled pork.
Thanks for that, very helpful. I have had a charcoal basked on order with Horizon, since June. I called last week, and the info I was given was it should ship early this week. No shipping info yet, so I kind of doubt it. I do wish I would get it sooner rather than later. I would love to be able to hold heat for 5 hours or so, that would be awesome.
Thanks for that, I was almost at that point - I called Horizon again today, and was told they were going to ship today via Fed Ex to arrive to me on Friday, in time for my smoke this weekend. Keeping my fingers crossed.
