First butt with Dutch's beans

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Well got out my ECB converted to Charcoal smoker out to attempt my first 7lb butt and a batch of Dutch's beans.

Got my temps up to 235 around 8:30 a.m and put the butt on for the day.

I hit my stall at 147 for about 3 hours and then it went to 165 pretty quick. Got it wrapped in foil and bumped my temps up to about 250-260 for the rest of the cook.

Ended up hitting 197 around 8p.m and tossed it in the cooler for an hour.

Dinner was a bit later than I thought but well worth the wait. The beans were excellent. I even made a non bean eater go back for his third helping.

One thing I need to work on is how much chips to feed the smoker. The pork was excellent but a bit too smoky for my taste.

Thanks to all here who have posted great info for me read and learn from.

Great lookin job H. Maybe you want to use a different wood if the one you are using is tooooo smokey (strong). I am guessing you used hickory or mesquite. I use apple and cherry all the time, I use to have the same problem and also TBS is the ticket. Just my 2 coppers...

I use hickory, but cut it way down after about 3 hours or so, as to not over smoke it. Nevertheless, that sure looked good - the beans tasted good just looking at them!

If you feel the butt was too smoky, use less wood. Most folks use too much wood in the beginning... heck durn near ALL. I'm not suspecting creosote from the shot of the Thin Blue ya had going tho.

Matter of fact... I'm doling out POINTS! for this smoke! Nice job!
