Game Day Butt (w/ Q-view)

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

My wife is out of town + her not eating pork = my smoking a butt to take to a friend's for the game.  I don't use rubs on butt (or bigger).  This is going into the MES40 with AMNPS burning Pitmaster Choice (mix of cherry, hickory and maple) + some charcoal pellets.  I have the MES cranked up @ 275° because the MES (at least mine) is notorious for displaying hotter than actual chamber temp (especially middle to lower racks).  If I can find my ET-72, I can measure it...but I'd like to be done sometime before sunrise tomorrow lol.  In the interim, I'm using the MES' meat probe as a chamber temp gauge.  In meat, it's been running +/- 5° with the ET-72.  I'm ok w/ that much wiggle if it'll be as accurate free-floating.  I have a quick-read probe for checking meat temp.

 

I will be using Delwood's (my favorite Eastern NC flavor sauce) as a finisher when i pull/chop it (TBD on timeline).

 

6# - scored fat cap, placed directly on grate cap up and put pan just below it (didn't want it sitting in the run-off).  Will update when I can.  Not expecting much out of it for a while.
