    Hey all,
    As some of you know, I smoked a 7 lb. Boston Butt yesterday. It was awesome!!! Here's some pics for your veiwing pleasure.

    I cut this myself; I work at Whole Foods Market.

    It turned out Great! Here it is after 2.5 hours...

    After 6 hours...

    After 9 hours of smoke and 4 more in the oven... (162 degrees, then to 200 double-foiled in a 250 degree oven) The sausages (3 hours) had an incredible snap to them!

    I used the Minion Method. By the way, don't light your chimney starter on an asphault driveway unless you wan't a hole there. [​IMG]

    I finally started getting the hang of it after 5 hours. Total time 13 hours.
  2. Looks really tasty there!! Good job! [​IMG]

    thanks for the kind words. the butt was a hit and tasted even better when i chopped it. but i was thinking, if i cut it in half before cooking and rubbing, wouldn't i have gotten alot more surface area and shorter cook time? what's the smallest butt you've ever roasted?

    Welcome! From a fellow newbee!!

    The butt looks quite tasty!! [​IMG]

    Is that a "new" ECB? I ask because I recently got a "Gourmet" charcoal fired ECB and the coal pan and leg designs on mine are quite different than yours.

    Well, dang it..I mist this the other day, but GOOD WORK Guv... I think it deserves POINTS!
  15. Low temps, slow cook times. The more time it spends on the grate the more time it has to cook 'in on itself' internally, thus breaking down the connective tissues, etc.

    I light my chimney starter on two bricks side by side, keeps the concrete clean... until i spill paint/Q sauce/grease/ on it.
