My daughter requested PP for saturday supper at the cabin. I only have a weber propane grill there so i decided to smoke a 7lb butt last night and reheat in a slow cooker on saturday. I put it on at 9pm at 225* thinking it would likely reach 205* early this afternoon and my wife would be there to take it out and it could rest till i got home from work and then pull it. I had the maverick in the smoker to be sure of the cabinet temp and then at 11 i stuck it in the butt IT was 118* and then went to bed. I woke up to the maverick alarm about 6am it was set for 198. probed it a few places and it was like butter. Checked the cabinet temp again with the mav and to my surprise it was 260*. So i took it out and foiled it wrapped it in some old beach towells and stuck it in the oven. I made a variation of chef jj's finishing sauce. I used some home made choke cherry syrop instead of corn syrop. Ill pull it and dress it with saucr when i get home and post a couple more pics. A couple small pieces fell off for sampleing when i foiled it. Nice flaver and a surprising amount of bark.
