In summary: Jeff's recommendation was to smoke for 3 hrs at 225 and then finish in the over at 325 until a 205 internal temp is reached. Question: Can this process be done in reverse? Oven for a bit first, then smoke? Anyone ever started a Boston Butt in an oven then transferred to a smoker? I have an ECB, so I cannot leave it unattended. A morning appointment has thrown a kink into my smoking plans. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.
