Just A Butt, ABTs to follow

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Picked up a 6 butts on sale last week for .98 cent a pound.  This one here was just over 6 lbs.

Trimmed a lot of the fat cap off because I've found with the last few I've done they are plenty moist and have enough internal fat.  Plus I think with hourly spritzing and foiling at 165*, it can't really help but be moist.  Mustard on!

Rubbed and double wrapped in plastic wrapped for a rest in the fridge until morning.

As much as my head hurt this morning I went ahead and got up to get my butt smoken'!

Started spritzing just about 2 hours in.  This was the 4 hour spritz.

At 5 hrs and 20 minutes in she hit 165* and pulled.

Spritzed up (3 to 1 apple juice & cider vinegar) and for some reason I thought I'd throw a little brown sugar in the mix.  Double wrapped her in foil and put back in for probably another 4 hrs until she hits 205*.

Thank you Pineywoods.  We're just going with the cream cheese and sharp cheese today....if the wife will hurry up can get back with the bacon! lol  I want to order a holder so we can start stuffing them instead of doing the boats.

It was sure nice finishing this up in just over 8 hrs @205*!  But now I've overeaten and can't move! lol

 

Just over an hour rest in the cooler and she was juicey still at 200*!!
