First butt(s) in the smoker, QView coming soon!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! Just wanted to say thanks for all the help... I went to BJ's friday night to get a butt, but they only had one single and it was a beast, so I ended up with two butts... 15lbs total. One is probably 8lbs and one is probably closer to 7lbs. I rubbed them down w/ mustard and Jeff's rub yesterday afternoon. Then (and the wife thinks I'm insane for this) I got up at 4am to get the smoke going! Managed to stumble around the house and find my camera for a pic as they were going on, and I'll post it shortly and try to keep you folks posted on their progress!

I think most folks around these parts understand. Shows your dedicated.

I haven't done that in a while. I simply prefer to get the butts going before going to bed and let them work all night. I've got my smoker to the point that it allows me to get >6 hours of sleep with no problem.

Off to a nice start, jfoust. Keep up that qvue and remember that a plateau will hit ya soon where the temps stall for a bit. Dont' worry about it and let the meat ride out the wait at that constant temp of 225-240. Low and slow ...

Good lookin' grub so far!!

And the butts are touching each other too! EEWW!

The smoke looks good, just stay patient when the plateau comes. I for one can relate to getting up ealy to fire up the woodburner. But I like it.

Seems like BBQ tatstes better after only 3-4 hrs of sleep. Then there is the post BBQ nap, which is a tradition around here!icon_smile.gif Unless there is a wings, tigers, wolverines game or nascar race. Then the nap has to wait till bedtime!PDT_Armataz_01_06.gif
