    This was my first Butt smoke in the new Mes. Rubbed with Jeffs rub, smoked w/ hickory.Spritzed w/ apple juice & Jim Beam mixture. Had the longest stall I've ever experienced @ near 3 hours. Started to panic, but thanks to Ronp, I got through it. First time that I used Jeffs rub, thought it was tasty.

    All rubbed down, ready for fridge:

    In for the long smoke:

    After about 4 hours:

    Around 8 hours, lookin good:

    Then the loooonnnnggg stall began. Didn't get any pics after finally taken off the smoker as it was late & I was very tired.

    After pulling 1 of the Butts, I took a pic of the finished product:

    The meat was mighty tasty! The wifey & I enjoyed it. The wife used the foodsaver to freeze most of it. Again, many thanks to Ronp!! Thanks for looking.

    Great looking Q and way t o hang in there. Man is at the top of the food chain and shouldn't be beat by a hunk of dead hog. You beat the stubborn thing and enjoyed the BBQ. [​IMG]

    You too have some good looking butts. Now for a second I thought I was looking in my smoker cause I also have a couple of butts smoking as we speak.

    I actually had 2 stalls. 1@around 158* & the other @around 184*. These were very long stalls @ around 3 hours each. With Ronp's advice I put them in foil pans w/ aujous from the drip pan & covered w/ foil. Set the MES @ 185* went to bed. When I awoke about 5 hours later, I pulled them off the smoker. They were fall apart done. The bark wasn't crispy, but they were very juicy & had very good taste.Guess I panicked on the long stalls, but I got some very good advice.

    It seems like just yesterday the inside of my MES looked that virgin. Now it is getting a nice black seasoning after just 1 month and about six smokes.
