I am smoking 2 8lb pork boneless pork butts for 22 woman (wife's sisters bridal shower) obviously I want a safe entree. My question is after washing meat applying rub, and preheating smoker to 275 can I insert the internal meat probe right away? I have never had a problem before but then again I have never smoked for this many people. My plan is to smoke till 160 then wrap with foil juice til it is 2055 let rest for an hour then pull. Thanks for any comments. Love this time of year and sorry I haven't spent much time on here. I will be posting pics of the butts.
