I finally got a spare 12 hours to start my first ever butt. I smoked only twice before, with one good and one not-so-good result with ribs. I started at 0450 and about twelve hours later, I had the most juicy, delicious pulled pork sandwiches I ever had!!!! I rubbed and smoked a 7+ lb butt at 225-240 degrees for about 10.5 hours or so...at the 165 degree mark, I foiled and waited until it hit 199. It rested while I prepared sides. Then it was pullin time, and the meat just fell apart like I never saw before!...I used SoFlaQuer's finishing recipe, and I was in Heaven....Thanks to all who have posted here, I read many of the posts and the forum is a wealth of knowledge...I tried to post pics, but I'm not sure they went through...Thanks, Pete

Congrats Pete! What a great feeling, huh? What flavor wood did you use?
That's really cool...thanks for sharing the success story and I believe I can speak for the rest of the gang in this group when I say, "May you have many more successful smokes!".

Take care,
Sam

Well done. It took me a few tries to get almost perfect results. Your smoke sounds just about like the proceedure I have stumbled on with the help of the good folks here. Hope you continue to enjoy success.

Congrats, Pete. Nothing beats the sound of, well, nothing, as everyone is silently stuffing themselves with the best Q you've pulled off yet! Glad to hear you nailed it. Have a great weekend, and enjoy the leftovers!

Way to go Pete!
Congratulations on a great smoke. I'm putting a butt on tomorrow morning and I hope it turns out as well.
