    I would like to thankOld School and everyone else on this forum for the support

    Here ya go and thanks to the players mustard, rub and 2 6lb bonles butts

    wrapped up and in fridge overnight

    the one on the right is a mesquite rub

    In Smoker at 220*

    Put in smoker at 8:30 smoker was at 220 but by the time i shut door it was down to 192*

    these are 6lbs each so I am figuring about 9hrs will put probe in at about 12- 12:30 will take

    IT to 200 - 205 will not foil till done then in cooler for one hr or so ALSO no water in pan right??

    Made IT to 140* in 4 3/4hrs is that ok?? [​IMG]
  4. I think you're good.  Getting to 140* means your getting closers to the stall.  The temp will not rise on a straight line to finish temp.  It will flatten FOREVER then slowly start to rise again.  However, I think you're gonna be longer than 9 hrs.  I plan 2 hrs per lb and add 2 hrs for a fudge factor running the cooker in the mid 200(s).  I'll be interested to see how you do.

    Thanks bama that is what i figured also just wanted to make sure yes more than 9hrs I think now i was figuring 1,5hrs per pound
  6. I think you're looking fine.  Some say 1.5 hrs.  I dunno...never works for me so I plan 2.

    Bama you were correct 13hrs pulled them out at 9 something and they just fell apart Thanks everyone

    and pulled not too bad for 1st timer My wife and kids loved it

    Thanksfor looking

  8. Looks fantastic! [​IMG]  Like Bama, I always go with 2 hrs/lb.
  9. Looks great and congratulations on a job well done!!
  10. Great looking Hog Butts.... :grilling_smilie:
  11. Timing is hard to judge when smoking Boston Butts or Pork Shoulders.  I agree with Bama. 2 hours is a decent base time. 

    Its all about the internal temp.  190-205 is where you want to be.

    Looks like they turned out well Steve.
