So here is the Qview of the finished product (not great pics since they came from my phone)! Despite my struggle with the length of the smoke, the butt turned out really, really well. Here's the conversation my wife had with me when I started pulling:
Wife: This is really good. I mean really good.
Me: Thanks, it's pretty good but I think I can do better.
Wife: Well this may seriously be the best bbq I've ever eaten, so if you can do better than I can wait to taste that.
As for the vitals, I smoke with a mixture of hickory and apple chips which had been soaked in water overnight and got really good smoke from them. I used a really simple rub that I found on another site that had a really good flavor and a very slight kick to it. Now I can't wait to try again!
Here's the butt:
And here's the pulled pork:
