Making PP Sunday, I have a 8 lb butt, will be injecting it Saturday and putting my rub on it. I changed my rub for the butt and we will see, how it comes out. I also am trying North Carolina BBQ

If you follow what you described, it should be great! Plan on a long cook though.

8 hours, you think thats what ive been reading wrap at 5 or should i just let it stay unwrapped 
It's all up to you and how much bark you want. Wrapped, it may cook faster, but the bark will suffer. Unwrapped, good bark, but longer cook time.

I did 2 8 pounders last night. Started then at 5:30 and the finished at around noon today. Butts have a mind of their own, you can't time them consistently.

It reheats well. All that I cooked will be eaten by may parents over many many meals. I vac packed it to freeze, but once defrosted it reheats with a finishing sauce really well.

If you wrap your butt you can always finish in the oven as well. I really like having a unit that can run all night!

Yeah but then that would take the fun out of keeping a fire going and relaxing and that's what BBQ is all about. Family friends and eating good right

Great job. There's nothing quite as good as PP.
