    Battled the wind and a storm front but here it is my first attemp. Had to foil it at 170deg and finish in the oven. Did I masacre it?

    Looks good to me.
  4. Hey richtee I am very new to smoking and I have done 2 butts that came out good ( i think ) what are the smoke rings you talk about?
  5. I second the "it looks good to me" post. What are you griping about? Unless it tastes bad, the q-view is nice.

    See that reddish tinge around the outside edge of the meat? You can only get that by true smoking of meat. Well, you CAN cheat...but it's a characteristic of good low and slow cooking over a wood fire.... here's some more info:

    Lenny, check the 3rd pic. See the pink penetration from the outer edge of teh meat workin its way toward the middle? Thats the smoke penetration, i.e. the smoke ring.

    Devildog, I'd say you FAR from massacred it! It looks great! Gotta let us know how it tasted! I'm tossin you some points cause it just HAD to taste as good as it looks, and for a newb at butt smokin, that's a nice smoked butt!!
