2 Butt Smoke w/ Qview

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
This was my first Butt smoke in the new Mes. Rubbed with Jeffs rub, smoked w/ hickory.Spritzed w/ apple juice & Jim Beam mixture. Had the longest stall I've ever experienced @ near 3 hours. Started to panic, but thanks to Ronp, I got through it. First time that I used Jeffs rub, thought it was tasty.

All rubbed down, ready for fridge:

In for the long smoke:

After about 4 hours:

Around 8 hours, lookin good:

Then the loooonnnnggg stall began. Didn't get any pics after finally taken off the smoker as it was late & I was very tired.

After pulling 1 of the Butts, I took a pic of the finished product:

The meat was mighty tasty! The wifey & I enjoyed it. The wife used the foodsaver to freeze most of it. Again, many thanks to Ronp!! Thanks for looking.

You too have some good looking butts. Now for a second I thought I was looking in my smoker cause I also have a couple of butts smoking as we speak.

I actually had 2 stalls. 1@around 158* & the other @around 184*. These were very long stalls @ around 3 hours each. With Ronp's advice I put them in foil pans w/ aujous from the drip pan & covered w/ foil. Set the MES @ 185* went to bed. When I awoke about 5 hours later, I pulled them off the smoker. They were fall apart done. The bark wasn't crispy, but they were very juicy & had very good taste.Guess I panicked on the long stalls, but I got some very good advice.

It seems like just yesterday the inside of my MES looked that virgin. Now it is getting a nice black seasoning after just 1 month and about six smokes.
