I was in the grocery store picking up a few things and of course I had to browse the meat case. This 7-1/2 lb pork butt called out to me. I did the butt and a couple of fatties, I'll do a seperate thread for the fatties. It was a long day, put the meat in at 8 am, I didn't hit 205 till 9:30 pm! Had a couple of stalls, seemed to take forever to go from 190-205. I had a couple of big temp spikes that worried me, I have a Mastercraft vertical propane and the wood chunks caught fire. The spikes didn't seem to hurt it though.

Spotted this gem and couldn't resist, it had my name on it. Unfortunately I was going away for a couple of days so I couldn't smoke it right away, had to freeze it. Since I found this site and got serious about BBQ I shop meat like women shop shoes.

Rubbed and ready to go in. I used Memphis dust for the rub. I injected it with a mixture of apple juice, vinegar, worsteshire, and some spices.

Temp hit 165 after about 7 hrs, foiled it at 3 pm,

I don't know what happened to this pic. Anyway, it didn't hit 205 till 9:30 pm, I put it in the cooler and pulled it around 11 pm. It could of stayed in the cooler longer, was still pretty hot but I didn't want to be up all night, I used SoflaQuer's finishing sauce on it with a little modification, I cut the vinegar in half and used half apple juice and cut down on the red pepper (my wife still whined that it was too hot

) I added a couple of drops of liquid smoke.

My buddy, he stays close whenever I am cooking, if he hears 'whoops' or 'Oh ****' he comes running with his nose to the floor

Yes, he is spoiled...My wife looked at this thread and said "I don't like 'butt' and 'fattie' in the same sentence"

LOL, The words & phrases we use on the forum are really strange to the rest of the world:

I told my brother I was admitted to the "Order of the Thin Blue Smoke".

He said, "Is that the club Ralph & Norton or in?"

No, that would be "The Raccoon Lodge".

LOL----WISE @$$ brother !

How did you defrost it? How long did it take to defrost?
I took it from the freezer to the fridge, took over 2 days to defrost, I am not sure of the exact time. I put it in the fridge on Saturday night late, it was still somewhat frozen Monday, by Tuesday night it was thawed, I was able to inject it and rub it for smoking Wednesday.

That's a nice looking butt (lol).  Looks like it pulled nicely.  My last 3 butts I tried to do without foiling and they took me forever to smoke...going to take someones recommendation and bump my temps up to about 250* for butts and see how that goes.
