    The word around the street here is roughly 200* IT for pulled. Most people pull them out at 195* IT, wrap in foil/towel and let rest for about an hour to get it to that 200-205* mark.

  3. Thank you very much thought maybe wasn't getting hot enough
     
  4. Never done a Boston butt, just smaller boneless ones, but have a 9 pounder cryopacked in the fridge to throw on later this week. Mind sharing some details? How big is it? What temp are you planning on use. How long do you expect it to take? What wood do you plan to use? Any other fun facts? Also, would love to know and see how it turns out.

  5. When I am going to pull it I let it go to 205 while in the smoker and then foil and towel it for 4 hours.

    X2...If you get that butt to 205* IT, then wrap it up and let it rest for at least an hour, it'll pull easily.  In fact it may fall apart as you take it out of the foil.

  7. Just pulled out smoked about 210deg from 10:30 last night about 8hrs then bumped up 230deg for about 4hrs then wrapped and basted with apple cider and throwed in my Kamodo for 3 hrs at 350deg  now resting not sure how long it will last resting smells way to good:). First I soaked in apple cider and about 10 cloves of Garlic for 8hrs then applied a rub and threw in my smoker.
