First Boston butt!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Trying my first butt today it's a 4lb bone in, I injected it last night along with the rub and wrapped and into the frig for 12 hrs. Heated the smoker to 230 and in it went for sind 7.5 to 8 hrs or until 205 IT.
prior to going into the smoker, will try to get a half way thru pic later today.
9 hours later this is the result! IT was 206 pulled it out and let it rest and pulled.

Man, that looks good! I'm about to start a butt thread myself today. Did it turn out fork tender or was it dry at 206 degrees? I plan to pull mine at 200 or until the probe slides through like warm butter.

I went very basic since it was my first butt I used onion powder garlic salt pepper and paprika. I injected with straight apple juice just to keep it moist. I used an mes 30 and add stated before around 9 hours to complete. I'm actually sitting on the beach with my little Weber grill heating the leftovers right now!

Great looking PP--nice and moist and juicy.  Pretty impressive bark too, coming out of a MES.  Great job.
