Seems everyone is doing a butt.....me too!!

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I was going to do this for a Florida Sportsman Big Bend bash, but TS Fay caused a cancellation. With it thawed already, not much I can do, but smoke it PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Lathered some yellow mustard, then some Durkee's Chicken and Rib Rub, along with some Bad Byrons Butt Rub.

At the 2 hour point, using the GOSM charcoal to propane conversion smoker, i am at 101º internal. Using a mixture of Hickory and Oak.

Hey Flash, butt is lookin' good so far! I got mine on the pit as we speak. I wanted to mix up some of that Dirt Road Sauce you had mentioned before, but I had some trouble finding a couple of the sauces you had mentioned in the recipe. My wife was also anxious to get home, so Ill have to try it out next time.

Good luck with the smoke!

I didn't like it at first, but it is growing on me.

Like what? Alot of it can be swapped out. Trappy's was hard for us, but trips thru Georgia found it for as little as .57 cents a bottle, so I bought a case. biggrin.gif

The Texas Pete and the Trappys were the two I couldn't find. I figured I could substitute something else, but my wife started getting a little impatient, so I told her I would just try another time. The recipe seems like it might make a lot. Does it keep well?

At the 5 hour mark I had reach 162º and decided to wrap it. Added alittle more Durkees Rub after spritzing it with the Makers Mark/Vinegar solution.

That Makers Mark is some fine stuff. I actually treated myself to a glass about 4am this morning.PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

The Trappy's is a Vinegar base hot sauce and does play a big part in the flavor. Not so sure why the Texas Pete, seems you could use Franks or more Cholula..........I will have to query Dewey for you.

They had other Texas Pete stuff, just not the mustard sauce.

Ahh, for some reason I was thinking hot sauce also. I believe one time we just substitued some mustard and honey as a replacement.

PDT_Armataz_01_04.gif Oops. I forgot I was going to baste the butt with some Louisiana Southern Hot & Spicey Basting Sauce before I wrapped, but figured with only one hour in the foil, I would do it any way. So at 6 hours, here it is. Internal temp was at 171º

This was an 8 lb butt. I ended up pulling it off at the 7 1/2 hour mark with internal temp of 198º

Still a nice bark, foil and all.

Pulled and ready for some Dewey's Dirt Road Bar-b-que Sauce PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif
