My 1st Pork Butt's Progress.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Well, currently I'm at 179°F. Here is a picture of my pork butt that I took when it was @160°-165°F, just before I wrapped it up. So far all is going well, although I don't think that I'm going to bed any time soon.icon_rolleyes.gif

I've been at it all day, in the same boat. Posted my progress in the Messages for All Guests and Members page. I'm at 192 deg now. Maybe bed soon?

Did 4 last weekend. 19 hours for 2 of them to reach 205º and 27 hours for the larger 2 butts. I have smoked quite a few butts but these were the longest so far. I suggest switching to the oven when they are wrapped at 160º and I use an alarm to let me know when they hit 160º, then you can get some well deserved shut eye.

It's 1:50 & I just finished cleaning up after pulling the butt apart. I'm getting together with my mother-in-law (who got me the smoker for Christmas) tomorrow. The only thing that I have left to do will be to make the homemade BBQ sauce. (That can wait until tomorrow.) Personally, I think that the finishing sauce that I got from Jeff will do just fine, but I want to give people the option of "saucing it up".

Good night all!

I highly recommend the starnes bbq sauce that you can find by searching this site. Everyone who eats here prefers that on their pulled pork. Another tip is to get/make some cole slaw. So good... Let us know how it turns out!

Well, my Boston Butt went over so well for the Superbowl that I ended up with no leftovers.icon_cry.gif I received quite a bit of praise that to all of you. Now I just have to try to feed 40 people this Saturday for my son's 3rd Birthday. I'm thinking 3 Butts & a rack of ABT's. The only problem is that I'm going to have to smoke through the night Friday night to be able to pull it off.icon_eek.gif

Great job Grande. Sure wish you'd package that up and send it out to all of us. Wouldn't that make Qvue a whole lot better?

Smell-Vue would also be pretty cool PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

Nice job, Grande!! Good luck with the ABTs!
