    I'm so glad it came out good for you!

    The whole meal sounds absolutely delicious!

    I wish you had got some photo's and you could have started your own thread.

    Well maybe next time!

    Nice job!

  2. Hey Al, newbie question. I have two butts weighing in at about 9.6 lbs each, Kroger has them on sale at .99 lb. Anyway, I know to go by the temp but if it's approximately 1.5 hours per lb of meat is this going to take 28 hours?

    Al is probably busy dealing with hurricane Irma.

    I don't know what temp your smoking at. But approximately 1.5 hours and that would be for the heaviest butt. Not both.
    You want to pull at 205 or check for good bone wiggle on your butt when you pull it.

    What Doug said is right on. You just take the largest butt & use that as your time estimate.

    At 225 my butts usually take about 2 hours per pound. So for 2 - 10 lb. butts I would figure about 20 hours.

    I've also been an "all night at 220°" for PP till this spring when time constraints dictated I finish in 10-12 hours...
    After asking for some advice on the forum here Bear sent me Cliff Carters way; following his advice and technique I smoked them at 280°-300° and finished pulled and served 6 butts (about 53 pounds) in less 12 hours and they were GREAT...I've since done 8 more butts this summer the same way with exceptional results...
    I'm with you Al...I won't be doing PP at 220° ever again unless I'm just bored and killing time.

    I'm glad Cliff's method worked good for you, Walt!!

    I had no reason to doubt it would be good, even though I never tried it. I knew Cliff wouldn't steer me wrong.

    He's a Good guy & he's been doing hot & fast for a long time.

    Al,

    Are you still smoking your Butts at a higher temp?

    Yes I am, unless they need to be done for lunch. Then I'll do an all nighter on the WSM at 225.

    Amazing as always, Al. Are you sure the Pulled Pork was that good, I suspect those Pretzel buns would have made anything taste great! LOL

    Happy to help you, and yes the buns are to die for!
    If you get the chance to make them, they really up the presentation appeal.
    And they really hold together good even with all the juicy PP & cole slaw.
    Good luck & let me know how you like the hot & fast method.
    I'm hooked on it & won't do it any other way unless I have to do an all nighter.

  17. I'll let you know for sure how they turn out, So far they look great. 7 hrs in and the IT is 185 si I backed the heat down to 215 or smoke setting to get a good smoke on the back end. also spraying with apple juice every few hours. probably another hour to go.
