Hopefully that first butt still turned out good Disco! This one definitely shattered time records for me.  I think my longest has been around 10-12 hours haha. 

Thanks!

Curious to know how that rib rack/roast holder worked for you. Did it pretty much function they way you planned in terms of exposing more of the meat?

Khnry it worked great!!! I bought a rib rack few years ago from Cabelas but would've never thought of turning it upside down.  It like most rib racks (including this one) is too narrow for most ribs I even buy to put in them - once the meat expands! I'd have to dig up that rib rack to see if it would work upside down, but this one has the heavy gauge wire used for a handle wrap an inch underneath it - if it were to be used properly as rib rack.  In the past I typically just set meat in foil pans to save a lot of cleaning.  I even started buying cheap cookie sheets with holes punctured in them (also in bbq sections at Walmart.. like $2 per sheet). Those sheets were often awkward with my foil pans.  Pretty much all of my cooks can be done in a 12.75"  x 10.375" x 2.562" medium pan. If the meat sat in the pan normally the bottom side of anything (especially my chicken) would be just super moist and not get any sort of crispness or cook feel to it.. Unless flipped. 

 

I found this in a Walmart out here in the middle of bum nowhere.. so you may get lucky finding them there to.  These racks even have pictures of being flipped upside down to hold roasts that encouraged me to buy them.  I think they were about $14 here, I bought a couple.  Naturally.. if you have a dishwasher cleaning and motivation to use them will increase by 1,000%... Unfortunately I am limited to the good ole fashioned sink.  These babies fit perfectly in the pans and I would highly recommend them if you are like me and like to keep your smoker (or grill!) easy to clean after a cook and I can provide you some better pictures at different angles or in pans if you'd like.  Would be next week before I could. 

 

I dunno if there is a place to review items like this but I'd gladly write up one or share for others.  For some reason I was just really excited when I saw this on the shelf haha.  Fitting in a foil pan is the big seller.

With this particular cook being a pork butt I did use a large pan (I think it was for turkey) but after it finished cooking I transferred it to a medium pan that would fit in my fridge.. Until I came home, warmed it up, and pulled it.
