butts are very forgiving.... you dont need luck, you have all of us.... biggest thing you have to remember is the plateau.... and lots of patience

I know I'm different from probably everyone else but when it comes to pork I will soak it in apple juice before any spices ever touch it. To me the juice pulls out a lot of the salt and gives the meat a sweeter taste. Yes I know your thinking a Texan that don't Like Hot Spicy and Salty but I like sweet mine sweet.

Well, I'll remember that tip about the apple juice. Is there alot of natural salt in the butts?
