    .99 cents are a good deal!

    Are the ones that are on sale have them with the bone in or out?

    hey BT 74 you put anything on those butts?

    I basted them with mustard and Jeff's Rub... I have found that the rub works really well on the butts and not just ribs...
    Also spritzing them every so often with apple cider vinegar and water mix.

    Ive been sick all week and really wanted to get do a pastrami too but, hey beggers can't be choosers!

    I am not finding that they are going slow really... I have noticed the temp fluctuate a 10 degrees up and down every so often though... Im trying to figure it out myself... The temp is at 150 now... My Butts always take 12 - 14 hours to have them perfection...

    They are now stalled at about 155 degrees... I hate this part...

    Yep.. the old stall or plateau. Got to be patient and just let it do it's thing. Rewards are big in the end.

    I picked up a 8# butt for Sunday, its the biggest I have done I figure Ill start mine around 6:00 a.m. to make sure I get it done for supper.
