In the smoker it goes:
AMNPS hidden inside it's cage at the bottom:
Daughter almost drank the bottle:
I will say that I was very surprised as to how well it turned out for my first butt.
1. Rubbed the 5# bone in Butt on Valentine's eve with Jeff''s rub and yellow mustard
2. Next day, cranked up the smoker to 350*
3. Placed butt in smoker on 2nd shelf with foil drip pan on 3rd.
4. Installed Mr. AMNPS under the burner in it's custom drilled out cage with Hickory Pellets
5. Started to reduce heat slowly to 250ish*
3. Every hour, misted the butt with a mixture of 3/1 apple juice & Meier's Rum......(Thank you Meowey)
4. 3.5 hours later, inserted the Maverick's probe and got an IT of 147*
5. Raised temp to 280* for the next couple hours til IT came to 165*
6. Put the butt into a foil pan and double wrapped in foil after I poured some extra apple juice into the pan.
7. Back into the smoker for another couple hours til IT came to 205*
8. Off to the ice cooler double wrapped in some old towels until 6pm.
9. Then came all the belches from the family
6 hours in the smoker + 2 hours in the cooler.
