Getting ready to throw a 8.5 pound pork butt on my electric smoker. Have it rubbed down with Carolina style "rub some butt" rub.
Thinking that I will put in on before bed, wake up around 6, wrap it and pull it by noon. Company coming at 3.
I am worried because last week I did a 4.5 pounder and it came out terrible, but I think it was a bad piece of meat. At IT 200 it still would not pull and inside was nothing but fat.
Hoping for the best
