    butt question

    Sorry, didnt get any pics. I finished late last night and the "Butt" in question was hideous. It was majority all fat. I pulled very little meat off of it. I know that butts have a lot of fat in them, but this was nauseating! Will never get another butt before I make sure there is a bone in it

    butt question

    Hi all,  I currently have four Boston Butts in the smoker. I bought them in the other day and realized this morning that only three have bone in. The odd one out has a lot less marbling and just a thick cap of fat on one side. The meat seems to also be a lot . . . denser, I guess you could call...

    smoking butts in a pan

    Hi all,   Smoked several butts before but have a hard time retaining the juices when they drip. I was going to set them in a disposable roasting pan in the smoker. Will this reduce the amount of smoke that they take in?

    Successful party

    Sorry guys. I pulled the last one at 0230 in the morning and had to be up at five to go to work. I was a little sleepy. . . and greasy. . . so I didnt think to grab a camera. Lesson learned, though. Next time, there will be pictures. Thanks

    Successful party

    I wanted to thank everyone on here who has responded to any previous posts. My son had his second birthday party this weekend with about forty guests and it went off with rave reviews. I bought Jeff's rub and sauce recipe and the four butts that I smoked were perfect. The sauce was unbeatable...

    Dutchs wicked baked beans

    Hey guys, real quick, I am trying to get a grocery list for a party Sunday. I am going for an inagural run on Dutch's wicked baked beans. I need to know how many that recipe will serve with a medium sized serving. Also, is it worth it to smoke it, or should I just throw them in the oven? Thanks!

    Thick. . . blue smoke

    Thanks for the input. See if you can explain this too me. I am now six hours into the smoke. My smoke now is almost non-existent. It does not matter how much I throw in there now, it still makes almost no smoke. Nothing has changed. What is going on?

    Thick. . . blue smoke

    Hey all,   I currently have four butts on the smoker for my son's 2nd birthday party on sunday. I am a nervous wreck about messing it up. Here is my question. I have one chunk of hickory about half the size of my fist in the pan and it really seems to be chugging out the smoke. It isnt white...

    Too little smoke?

    Hey guys,    I have a Brinkman Vertical gas smoker and have been having a lot of smoke issues. I couldnt seem to stop smoke from boiling out of every crevice of the smoker and I ruined a couple of fatties last week. so I am out playing with it today and raised my chip pan up a few notches. Now...
