Pork butt bone in smoking tried something diff any advice

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So i had a 6-7lb bone in butt. did my rub n such. Started last night at 5pm took it off grill/smoker at 130am. Wrapped in foil towels cooler.

 

Its def not pullable yet. I put back on the smoker at 10am IT is 130.

 

I guess what i'm asking is, is this a good method or should i have left it overnight? It was real cold last night that is why i pulled it off grill/smoker.  Using old school round weber grill coals on one side apple chunks n pan of water.

With Pork Butts time is just a guideline. Smoker temp and Internal Temp (IT) is what is critical. Smoker temp needs to be 225-250 for figuring 2 hours per pond timing. At 250-275 1.5hr per lb and 275+ timing gets closer to 1hr/lb...The IT for pulling is usually around 205°F and testing for doneness by poking around with the therm probe. The probe should slide in with zero resistance and the bone should easily wiggle free. Give a 30 minute rest and start pulling. Another option is to smoke to an IT above 195°F and wrap in foil and towels and place in a cooler for a 2-3 hour rest. During this cooler time the residual heat continues the cook the butt, breaks down remaining connective tissue and the meat falls apart. These are the best options...JJ

IMHO, you should have let it go all night.

I smoked a butt on my weber a few weeks ago, it was cold 20 degrees or so. Put the grill in my garage and finished the 7 pound butt in 12-13 hours. Had a long stall at 170 ish bout 2 hours then it slowly climbed. I had to add some charcoal at around 10 hours. The vents were pretty plugged up. Got them cleaned out a bit and sure enough it worked out fine. Pulled it with 2 forks.
