butts are very forgiving.... you dont need luck, you have all of us.... biggest thing you have to remember is the plateau.... and lots of patience

I know I'm different from probably everyone else but when it comes to pork I will soak it in apple juice before any spices ever touch it. To me the juice pulls out a lot of the salt and gives the meat a sweeter taste. Yes I know your thinking a Texan that don't Like Hot Spicy and Salty but I like sweet mine sweet.

Well, I'll remember that tip about the apple juice. Is there alot of natural salt in the butts?

Are you or did you foil or are you going 'naked' throughout?

I was going to go naked, but as long as it is taking I am thinking of foiling it at 170...what would you do?
