ok guys, to answer a couple of questions. I did not remove any skin before smoking. I'm not sure if it was or wasn't skin but like I said it peeled off in one piece
skin, remove this
If I really should have smoked it for maybe 12-14 hours and then wrap it in tin foil for anothter 2, I guess I'll have to start on Sat and eat on Sunday.
Dutch said "Foiling the butt once it reaches the 160°-170° mark well help get you though the stall quicker" So you're saying to foil it and continue smoking ?
The stall is your friend, don't rush it.
I never foil it, if you don't foil you will get more "Bark"
If you do foil, keep in the smoker but no "Smoke is Needed"
I loaded a chimney to the top (appx 100 brickets), fired it up, poured it in charcoal ring. This looked wimpy so I poured another 50 to 100 brickets on top of the lit ones and added the wood. I guess this the bizarro minion method?
