This is my first butt. Rubbed it with mustard and tony chachere's yesterday.
I put it on at 3:05am, I plan on foiling at 160 and then taking it to 200 to pull.
I'm using mainly pecan and a little mesquite wood.


That looks good. I was so happy when I did my first butt. Was awsome.
Good luck. Sittin on my 9th hour with a brisket right now.
Your pics are looking good, Isn't this site just great, I cooked my third butt last night and we just ate most of it. I couldn't have done it without the help from these wonderful cooks on here.
The wife said she wants me to start doing one every weekend now. Looks like I have started something, but I am looking forward to my next one already. It's addicting.

I just have to get me a good meat thermometer.
Turned out great very tender and juicy. Pulled some and put BBQ sauce on it and left some in bigger chunks. It was a 7 pounder and took 9 and a half hours. Have to try a brisket next.

I've said it once but I'll say it again. Nice butt! is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
