First Pork Butt with Q-view

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Smoked my first butt Memorial Day weekend. Used a rub that was part my homemade stuff and part a store-bought pork rub (wanted to get rid of scraps of both). Used briquettes and hickory chunks at 220-235 for 9.5 hours. Foiled at 165, pulled off the smoker at 205. Wrapped the finished butt in towels and threw it in a cooler for an hour before pulling. Used SoFlaQuer's finishing sauce after pulling. Results - outstanding!!! Rave reviews from the assembled masses. Thanks to everyone here for all the tips and tricks and the finishing sauce.

I also posted some here:

As I said at the end of the post, I still need to get a nice paint job on mine, but for now, at least it's functional.
