now that the pork butt is done.. i put the rest of the qview up. :)
i am pretty much satisfied with the butt. however, i forgot to spray it with anything to keep it moist on the outside. never done that and was gonna try it this time.. so the outsdie of the butt is a little on the dry side. but, if you can see in the first pic, it just fell apart. i just put my mustard sauce on some more and just cut it up. still very good. the potatos on the other hand... got tossed. must have cooked them too long. they wheren't really a priority anyway.
first pic is right outta the smoker. just fell apart when i took it out. good sign right.?
2nd pic is after i kept it in the oven for about 20 mins with the extra sauce on it.
and then all cut up.. pretty nice ring on it as well.. i think the charcoal really does help.!
all in all this was a very good smoke for me.. i have found out what others are saying has been true. my temp gauge on the smoker runs about 30-50 degrees colder than it is. the next time i'm going to switch to a lot smaller pieces of wood. the big ones don't catch very good and i had to sift through the bottom of the bag to get the good ones. i'm also gonna spray next time.. and also use a few bricks of charcoal too. that really helped i think. after i changed the first bit of wood. i hardly got any smoke off the big pieces i had left.
