Quick Butt Question, Opinions Please?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

My butt is at 199 degrees now.

 

Is there that much to be gained by letting it stay in the smoker until it hits 205?

 

My goal is pulled pork.

 

I'm willing to wait it out if it will be significantly better, but I've read some threads that say 200

 

Any thoughts?

if you are going to be foiling and wrapping in towel it will cook some in the cooler.  That being said I always wait it out but that is just me

I take them off anywhere from 195*-205* and then I let them rest in an aluminum pan covered in foil. I use a lot less foil this way.

that's part of the reason i asked...i just read where someone said the butt will gain another 10-15 degrees in the cooler

that sounds like a good idea, too.    do you put that in an oven or just let it sit on the counter while it's resting and redistributing the juices?

Have to agree with was already said. Have had good results anywhere above 190 - 195 and allowing to rest for an hour wraped in cooler.The best part of it all was how much fun I had doing it and what a great experience it was. Should be fine and happy smoking. LOL 

 

 

 

 

Not bad for your health, its loads of fun, and its legal

Yea, I just keep the pan on the counter, they stay hot for hours just like in a cooler and then when you are ready to pull, just pull it the pan. I get a lot of juice on the bottom of the pan and I spritz with apple juice as I am pulling.

if you can try to use the "feel" method as well, every butt can be a little different. if it has a bone tug on it to see if it will come loose...........and i use a foil pan and let it sit on the stove as well.
