Did my 1st butt this weekend, damn this stuff is good!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I did my first smoked butt this weekend for Memphis BBQ and I can't believe how good it turned out. I had a 7 1/4 # bone in butt and did the following:

1 - Rubbed it down the night before with Magic Dust from Mike Mills book Peace Love & BBQ and put it in a plastic bag in the fridge.

2 - Took it out of the fridge about an hour before putting it into the smoker.

3 - Smoked it with hickory until it reached an internal temp of 140.

4 - Sprayed it with a 3 to 1 mix of apple juice to Captain Morgan's every hour after it hit an internal temp of 100.

5 - Wrapped it in foil after it hit an internal temp of 165 and put it into the oven at 250 until it reached an internal temp of 200.

6 - Let it rest in the foil for an hour then chopped it up.

7 - Made awesome sandwiches with homemade cole slaw!

It was unbelievably good and of course I can't wait for the next one to make it better!

I can smoke a pork butt but I cant figure out how to get the pics to be a small enough file size to meet the requirements of the web site. I do have some good pics though.

You need to find a place like Photobucket on the web to store your qview then you can link your pics from there into SMF. There are places other than Photobucket, I started out there and it works fine for me. http://www.photobucket.com

Your description sounds like it was great.

If anyone wants to see the short photo essay I did over the weekend curing and smoking you can hit me at freezegofer@gmail.com

I'm curing the bellies now and will be firing up the smoker again this weekend.

Thanks for all the help on the site!

No doubt doing your own is way better......hope to see pics next time. As has been mentioned "no pics...didn't happen". I'm bad about that too....so I don't mention that I smoke something almost every weekend but forget about the pics. Continued success!!

Download Irfan View. Its a free simple little picture viewer.

http://www.irfanview.com/

Open up a pic, click on the Image drop down menu, choose "resize/resample". In that window, I choose the percentage box. My cam's take BIG pics, so I usually just resize to 40% of original, then save. Now the pics are small enough to post. Give it a shot, very easy. An Irfan View is an awesome free picture viewer. Much better than anything that comes with windows, thats for sure.
