Well, I did it. Two pork butts and everyone enjoyed the barbecue. First time smoking pork butts. The prep was a little intuitive than ribs. And I learned, salt pepper garlic and paprika makes really good barbeque.
It took nearly 11 hours. Probably wouldn't have taken as long had I just put them straight onto the grates however , would have had a mess in pellet grill. First time using pecan pellets. Other than the amount of time it took, it was pretty easy

Yup, looking good. I have a vertical pellet smoker and I line the water pan with foil and go straight on the grates. Just let all that rendered fat drip right into that and makes for easy clean up.
 
Looks excellent!
When the bone pulls out clean like that you know you nailed it!
Nicely done!

Man you did good! Dirty Steve Dirty Steve has a good idea for ya. Also go to Walmart or wherever and get a couple of "cooling racks" like you use for baking. place them over your aluminum pans to put your protein on. This gets it out of the juices and lets it get that all around smoke.

Try filling that foil like pan with some chicken or pork broth. Defat it and mix some in the pork. Liquid gold man.
 
Nicely done. I'm glad it all came together...JJ
