Hi all. I have posted on the roll call introducing myself and have been searching and reading about pork butt. I just got my MES 30' on Tues and smoked spare ribs on Wed. More about the ribs later. So I am having about 14 people over on Sunday, bout 4pm. I see I need about 1lb raw meat per person? Yields a little more than 1/2 cooked? I searched on the pork forum looking for ways to prep and smoke, but there are many differences. I would like to have the basic easy steps for a first timer. Also, am I reading about pellets for the MES as opposed to chips? To start, I am going to clean some of the fat off, mustard and rub and wrap in plastic wrap over night. I also believe I am going to inject the butt? I am seeing different temps at certain times and IT's, foil or no foil, cooler or no cooler. I know there is a lot of info on this site, but just asking for the simple beginner method to begin with. I'd like to get a nice bark, and have read where we add cane sugar and brown sugar to the rub? If I start this late Sat night to be ready on Sunday, is it ok not to have smoke over night after the first couple hours until I get up in the morn on Sun and add more wood? Are we going more by IT than actual hours per pound? Thanks in advance guys.
