Not a fatty .. butt....

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Not as glamorous as the fatty throwdown but I figured while all the attention was diverted to fatties I could sneak in a butt.

9 lber bone in rubbed overnight with Jeff's rub and mopped with..... nothing!

I wanted to see how leaving it alone affected the bark and the moistness.

Advantage was I didn't need to lift the top of my WSM much, only twice over the 14 hour smoke. Cooked to an internal of 200 degrees over hickory, pecan and cherry smoke. I didn't foil it either until it went into the cooler for a 2 hours rest.

After pulling and sampling I can say that the pork didn't miss the rum mop, and there was more for me :)

Looks great Ron. I love the crystal clear close ups. Nice camera.

Outstanding pictures there! That's pulling some serious butt biggrin.gif

I'm kind of leaning to the no mop also as I like a firmer bark. Next time, no mop. Thx

Man Ron, ya just made my day! Going to forego the mopping/spritzing today now, since it still appears to come out great!

I'm not sure if I'll skip the foiling or not, but still have a ways to go to worry about that one.

Nice butt! You do give me pause for thought about my proceedures.

Well done!

Take care, have fun, and do good!

Huh! Interesting... I wonder how the meat feels being deprived of the random snort tho? ;{) Nice job as usual, Ron!

Ron, I agree with you. I never spritz nor do I foil and I have never had a bad butt. I like a bark that is not crisp but close to it. Seems to have morre flavor. Thanks for sharing.
