Looks like someone is going to have some yummy pulled pork, Dawn. Glad your friends are raving about it. May be time to start handing a business card over with "the goods" cool.gificon_lol.gif

Great looking smoke!

Ok, after chatting with Mikey, I've decided to pull the butts, foil them and put them in the Bradley to finish. They can enjoy their plateau there instead of in the brinkmann. icon_lol.gif

After losing power today the house is not that cool to begin with and I do not want to heat it up any more than I have to. They are in the Bradley at 250 until they hit 205 or so.

This is one of the butts, forgot to take a pic of the other one.

Yeah, lol, I meant which one had which rub on it. Sorry I wasn't more specific. One of them is almost ready for the cooler, another couple of degrees to go. icon_smile.gif

The finale

The monster butts turned out great! I'm very happy with the results.

This is the one with Jeff's rub:

This has the magic dust takeoff rub on it:

I'm going to chop the butt that has Jeff's rub on it today. It is for a pot luck dinner for the boy scouts and I'm hoping it will make it easier and less messy for them to eat. I'm planning on having a couple of different sauces available as well as some slaw to put on the sammies.

Look delicious! What do you do to reheat the meat?

I like to leave the fat cap on to help keep the meat moist but also want to have the rub reach the meat. I feel this does both jobs fairly well.

I will be using a crockpot to reheat the meat for the pot luck dinner. Just put the meat in it, add some of the juices, give it a good stir and turn it on low. It won't dry the meat out and will keep it warm for a long time.

The only problem I have is figuring out how far in advance I need to get it started. I've never had this much to put in it before. icon_lol.gif

By slicing the fat cap, did you get alot of extra drippings compared to not slicing it?
