    2.76 lbs each?
  3. yes total of 5.5 to 6 lbs of pork
  4. I have to admit, the concept of "about 2.76" kind of amused me.

    Give or take a hundredth?

    Plan your cook time from the weight of the heavier piece.  It takes about the same time to cook one as it does two.  figure at least 1.5 to 2 hrs. per lb.  That is just aprox.  Always cook by internal temp not time as every piece of meat is different.  Those are some small butts you get there in CO.  In western NY we call those thick cut pork steaks. lol   Good luck and don't forget to post pics.

    Yep we figure about 2 hours per pound, but since yours are so small it may be a lot less. 

    If you are foiling, take them to an IT of 165 then foil with some liquid and return to smoker or oven until an IT of 205 for pulled pork or 195 for sliced.

    Catch the juices from the meat to add back in after de-fatting. Also try this finishing sauce, a lot of us use it.

    I must admit that I have become a pork butt junkie. We just finished one and I came home from Cosco today with two more boneless big boys. Does anyone else around here have a problem with expending girth?  [​IMG]
  15. ok guys you asked for it!!!!       Q-VIEW!!!!![​IMG]


    The beginnings of what turns out to be a very good colorado southwest pork green chili!!!!!!



    3. 3 JAP-A-PINOS


    5. 3TBLS. CUMMIN



    8. 2 ONIONS


    10. SOME OTHER STUFF!!!!!



    look at that smoke penitration!!!!   [​IMG]

    ok guys the meat its a shame but you have got to do it this way !!!!!   when you take the meat off the smoker put it in the oven at 225 for two hours or so  and make sure you cover it  when you pull the meat out it will have a good amount of drippings from the meat  collected in the pan SAVE THIS YOU WILL NEED IT LATER.    so take that nice meat you just spent all day cooking and just put it in the refridgerator!!!!! yep you read that right      right in the ol' ice box till the next day you want to put all the juice in the box also so it gets cold and becomes a gelliton!!

    the next day pull out and cut 1inch cubes out of the cold meat!!!! the juice can be seperated from the fat( now its the orange stuff on top of the gelliton )


    the peppers and garlic!!! smoke em till the garlic coated in olive oil is done the peppers may need some grill time


    dice the onions cook till just turn clear add the pork you cooked the night before

    cook till you can get all the peppers and garlic cut 10 to 15 mins


    add all ingreadents together chilli pekine, cummin, onions, pork,peppers, chicken stock, smoked cummin, flour1/4 cup mixed  with the broth then added ,    salt,  2 cans of diced tomatoes



    thats me and my lil angel well you can do what ever you want with the recipe and let me know what you think I loved it but your taste is not mine but if you do it like i did and then try your way and see if you get another result keep you box hot and your beer cold 

  16. Yup, looks like you nailed it there, that had to be good.
