"Hi my name is Eats, and I failed" - Page 2

post #21 of 25
Thread Starter 
Thanks everybody for the input. I did 2 fresh butts today 6.5 and 8.0 lbs all the same methods and rubs but went with 250 on the dial instead of 220 and they both climbed over 200 IT in just about 10 hours. As I went to grab them off grate so I could wrap and rest them, I could tell they were falling apart in my hands.

Gotta chalk that last one up to just a mean ole hog.

Just don't expect the next ones to behave so well. Glad it all worked out this time.

I've definitely had a failed smoke or 2, but if you learn something from it, I wouldn't call it failure. 

 

FYI I've rescued a tough butt by throwing it in a crock pot overnight on low with a little extra rub and some mop sauce to keep it moist.  Not as good as a perfectly smoked butt, but not a waste of meat either.
