I got a smoker for my birthday in January and due to the crappy IL weather today is my first time using it. I put an 8.0 Pork butt in this morning at 7:00am. We are having family over for dinner on Monday night so that is what it is for.
Since I have plenty of time I am going to go low and slow. I am cooking at 225 until the IT. is about 200, going to pull it out wrap it in a towel and put it in a cooler for a few hours and then pull it and put in fridge for dinner tom night..
I used "Jeffs" rub and applied it yesterday morning and let sit in fridge over night.
I am using apple pellets in the AMazin pellet tray, but only used a little over two rows grandparents don't want big smoke flavor.
I also made the finishing sauce that everyone talked about on here, thought since it was going in fridge overnight it may dry out a little.
Couple questions.. what has everyone found works best to reheat the meat?
Anything you guys see i'm doing wrong?
I am going to open it about noon and stick meat probe in more pics then
