12hrs til Wrap?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Threw a 7-1/2 pound butt in at 6am and finally just hit 160*... gonna be a long day... LOL

I had been running the GOSM at about 235*, so upping it to about 250* now... hopefully we'll get a chance to try it out today biggrin.gif

It looks and smells wonderful though.

Here's a shot before going on the grill... trying out Jeff's rub...

And here's what it looked like a few minutes ago just prior to wrapping...

Will post again when it decides it's ready to be pulled biggrin.gif

Looking good Bill. Put my 7lb butt on at 6:15 this morn. It is now at 169. I've had a couple stalls with it. It'll be worth it though. Just hang in there.

The missus is talking about getting a pizza to hold us over...

I'm holding out tho. I figure she'll have a few slices less space in her stomach when the pork is ready wink.gif

"What? You're full already? Don't worry, I'll finish the pork for ya!"

The same thing happened to me last weekend. I also had some bad weather. I wrapped in foil and put in the oven at 250 for an hour and then an hour in the cooler...fantastic.....hang in there...

Looks really good so far! Jeff's rub is my staple with pulled pork, very tasty stuff. What kind of wood did you use to kiss that butt? biggrin.gif

Good luck with the pulling! That's the best part ... PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

Pretty much straight hickory today, but there were a couple mesquite chunks in there as well.

It's at 174*, but even if it's not done til midnight, that just means some nice grub and late-night movies... LOL

Looks good! PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Must have been a day for slow butts. My 5 pounder took about 12 hours from start to finish but it sure was yummy.
