Figured I'd take a break from smoking this weekend and have a good ribeye but the store I went to had butts on sale for $.99/lb so here I am.

This will be the first butt I've ever smoked. Going to do it on the MES at 220, foil at around 165, and take it to about 200. It's about 7.4 lbs. I'm going to throw it on now, figure it should be done around 12 or 1, then I'll towel it and put it in a cooler till morning.

Can't turn down .99 per pound butt. It hasn't been that cheap for a while here in Central Florida. Nice-looking ribeye, too!

Just got some butts here and the prices went through the roof. Paid $1.59 a pound at my local butcher.

Now if you found somebody that had butts for .99 lb the next thing you should had done is gotten a second shopping cart. Then call all your smoking buddies and see how many they wanted. But this is one of the things that you will learn from here. Then we will stay here until you smoke it and show us he pictures/Qview of it and tell you how good you did. But if you have any questions that happen to come oput during the smoke just let us know and we will amswer it for you. So now it's time for you to prep the butts for your smoke.

Looks good to me.. Dont be afraid to smoke a little bit hotter. I usually do mine at 235 to 240 (grill temp) in my MES with great results.

The regular price on these was $1.79/lb.

The ribeye was great. A couple hours marinating in Dale's.

Pulled it at 206 a little under 10 hrs. Wrapped in towels and in the cooler it's up to 208. I'm going to leave the probe in it and see what it does resting.
