    Seboke,

    Not today, might be doing/trying a meatloaf tomorrow. Kind of crazy around here so we're taking it as it comes.

    Having chicken salad tonight from the last whole bird I did...that was good! So, should have some good sammies tonight. Probably do some artichokes as well...yum!

    I score the butts to promote better bark, and render the fat away more efficiently! Thanks for the comments. I am up north with Pop on fathers day weekend, using this itty bitty teeny laptop. Tough for big ole clumsy fingers.

    I'm going to try the scoring thing next time. I would be interested to know if it aids or hinders the pulling process!

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    Regards,

    I've also wondered why I've seen the fat cap scored on butt's. Glad the question was asked and the answer was as simple as that! Will have to try that next time, and smoke the thing fat cap up.

    Thanks for the promotion,hehehe, I am still up north on my dads pc, its a dinasour, but it works. We got storms commin in, so I aint to sure how long I'll be on, them butts look great. I score mine a bit deeper, through the first layer of fat, and through the thin layer of meat, and into the second layer of fat. If ya look at my "graduation Butt post" of about 3 days ago, You notice the sqaures are more pronounced and valleys are deeper. I think anyone who has a smoker that smokes their butts fat side up, will benifit from this method. If you have a smoker that runs a lil hot or is tough to regulate,like the SFB horizontals, I would be leary about cooking fat side up. Makes me proud to see such a distinguished member of the site following my lead. I am honored, and wishing I was home in my pool![​IMG]

    10.5 hours for the last butt to get to 160. Forgot to take pics of the first two before foiling. These are ready to foil. One at 160, the other at 163



    The long wait to 200, then to the cooler, then to bed!
