9lb butt put on at 8:00am. Wrapped up at 140* with apple juice, butter, and honey. Off to rest at 3:00pm with a 203-205 temp. 3.5lbs of belly cut up and rubbed down, ran next to the butt for 2.5hrs then sauced and back on. They're just about finished. Used Pitboss Sweet Heat Rub on the butt and Twisted Q Sweet Heat on the ends. First attempt at the PBBE and they're money. Grill is a Traeger Pro 22 using GMG sweet blend pellets. Going to pair with Hawaiian buns, coleslaw, mac n cheese, and fried pickles. I would do the mac on the grill but its not big enough! This is my first time giving a butt a good rest after a cook. All drippings are saved in a pan and redistributed in the pull. Another hour and we will be digging in.
