It's around 25 degrees out and I got these butts for 99 cents a pound so.....

Time to melt some snow. Maple syrup and some home made rub on the butts. Hickory and GFS lump in the box. Qview when I find the camera. lol

Smokin Butts in 7" of snow, are you related to Jeremiah Johnson?

They look so good they would wake up a bear from his deep winter sleep.

Finally got the finished pics uploaded......

Butt coming out of foiled pan at 195.

I wrapped both butts in heavy foil and rested them in the cooler for 1 hour. Pulled them both and ended up with a BIG pan of pulled pork. Mixed in some SoFlaQer's finishing sauce and filled a small pan for dinner. Bagged and froze the rest.

The kids just put sauce on it and ate it with a fork. I made a sammie with my sauce and sprinkled with shredded cheddar. icon_mrgreen.gif

Funny you mention that. While cruising thru WallyWorld I saw a copy of Jeremiah Johnson on the 4 dollar rack. Of course I bought it and actually watched it during this smoke. PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif

Very nice looking & I bet great eating. I noticed you smoke the Butts with the fat side up. Is that the proper way? I just started smoking meat & the 2 pork shoulders I have done were with the fat side down (meowey's sticky thread). They both turned out great....but just wondering.

You can do it either way but I usually score the fat cap and add extra rub on top. As the fat melts it self bastes the meat. Butts are very forgiving and I don't really worry about temp spikes as I would with a brisket. I ALWAYS smoke briskets fat cap down.
