Questions about Butt Foiling - Page 2

post #21 of 27
The one time I did butts without foiling, I ended with a lesser yield of meat and although the bark was nice, it pretty dry toward the outside. Of course, I cook by butts at a little higher temperature (250-275). Maybe I'll try putting them in a foil pan next time instead of completely wrapped. Always up for trying something new!

its not really fine tuned, for my pork I rely more on temp than time. The time is a rough guideline cause there are so many things that cause it to take longer or shorter amounts of time for a large chunk of meat. Ribs are different so you can use the 321 or 221 timed method for ribs.

a good finishing sauce...just enough to coat the meat not enough to swim in it, will make it moist again :) Pull it and then put about a cup of favorite sauce concoction for every about every 5lbs. thats what I do regardless of how moist or dry it is.

Looks like most a yer questions has been answered, so heres how I do it.

I smoke ta 165° an then pull my butts an put em in a roaster pan, I got a couple different sizes, put the butt in the one what fits it best. Pop the lid on an inta a 250° oven with a temp probe in it an take em the rest a the way ta 195. Shut the oven down an crack the door open a bit an let em rest fer 2 hours then pull.

I do alotta butts fer caterin an cash/carry sales. Foil was gettin expensive an the pans make it reusable so cheaper. In business all them pennies count.

I have not noticed one bit a difference from finishin em this way over the foil. Many customers wanted to know what I did different cause they were even better then before.

Its what works fer me.

Try some each way an see what yall like best.

How hot do you run your smoker?

250°-275° UDS does a fine job on butts.
