Today Butts with QVIEW

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Gonna cook two butts today and a brisket tomorrow here is the butts @175 right before they were foiled and put back in. This is only my second time to do butts and this one took a little longer to get to 175 than the last one. I had a stall at 160 to 165 on both and they both finally hit 175 right about 8 hours after they went in thinking about another two hours until they can be pulled @ 195 but they are done when they are done. Who said you can't get bark on an MES and I know foil the water pan next time.

I haven't done any butts in the MES But I need to set it and not have to deal with it untill done.We're (the bride and I ) cooking breakfast for the church on Easter .About 175 people will be there.Nice looking pork any rub and what did you do to get that rich looking bark?

I just coat with Mustard use my standard pork rub and them a small coat of brown sugar on top. I am far from an expert that is just how I have been doing my ribs for years so I figured its all pig in the end. In the MES i do not open the door at all until I am ready to foil no spritz just add chips using about 50/50 hickory to apple. Gonna finish with a modified version on the finishing sauce in the pork sticky.

I'm guessing I don't get that much bark on my butts in the MES, because I go light on the sugar (DR's orders).

Any thoughts?

My rub has no sugar in it so I just add it on top not a lot just a fine coat.

Ok so it took almost 10 hours to get from start to 200 degrees in both the shoulders. Took lots of pics will post later this time I think I can say I am 100% satisfied with the results even my wife said this one was better and we loved the first one we did.

OK so here are the pics of this smoke. My wife thinks I am crazy for taking pics but loves me to cook so I think she has accepted the trade-off.

Here is butt one.

Followed by Butt two.

This was an easy pull.

One down one to go.

Wife helped out with the action shot.

All in all great smoke I owe you guy a lot you have turned this brisket man into a butt man. Well I think I have always been a closet butt man.icon_smile.gif
