Well this will be my first butt and my first overnight smoke tonight. Hopefully all turns out well. I picked up a butt from my local butcher a week ago and put it in the freezer. I got it all thawed out this morning and seasoned up. Im guessings its about 7#. Not totally sure because they gave it to me for free so they didnt weigh it. I made my own rub. Its similar to one i have do e for st. Louis ribs in the past that i really enjoyed...but i didnt write it down. So i tried to get close from memory. Its a paprika base with salt pepper onion and garlic powder. Nothing crazy. Ill be starting it at about 8 tonight. As for now she is wrapped up in the fridge. As far as wood goes i did a mix of hickory and cherry last week on a chicken that i really liked. How do yall think that would taste with a butt?
