Hey All,
It's been a while since I did an overnight cook. Got my butts prepped, waiting for the pellet pooper to come to temp. Going 200-225 until morning, see where they're at and adjust. No mustard binder, no injection, mixing thing up from my usuasl. ;)

If the meats moist a binder isn't needed, some folks like a crust of rub so a binder has to be used, not a fan of a crust of rub here just like it with enuf seasonings to get some flavor in them. A little rub after pulling can be better as big butts need help in the center some times.

That is precisely where finishing sauces shine in my opinion.

Update: butts are happily smokin away and were joined by some boneless short ribs.

I did have an issue, around 6am my temp alarm went off, temp was low, down to 165. Checked it and my control panel was reading "err" that's not good! Switched off and on - no change! Threw the butts in the oven so I could get to the burn pot, then cycled power once more and it came back to normal. Refired, a bunch of grease started burning off (not big grease fire just a little). I think maybe some grease leaked down and killed my fire since it was burning so low. Oh well, let it burn off and got the meat back on. :emoji_sunglasses:

Hey All, sorry for the wait. My girlfriend's parents are in town, this cook was for them and we've just been busy busy ;)

Turned out great, went close to 19hrs, but most of the time I ran 200 deg so I expected close to that. Finished with some coleslaw and and my GF made some homemade mac n cheese. Everyone loved chef jimmyj chef jimmyj 's finishing sauce -Lexington dip style, I really like it too.

It was great. I usually make a straight vinegar/pepper sauce but thought it might be too harsh for her parents. Her step-dad is a picky eater... well he loved it the most, said he doesn't like thick sweet sauces.... can't figure his tastes out but he's a ggood guy so I'll roll with it.. ;)
