Bone in Boston butts

  1. Good morning from southeast Texas my fellow meay smoking enthusiast. I am running two bone in butts for the first time. I have smoked numerous boneless. Thought i would take you on my journey. Here are some prep and starting pics. Smkoer is climbing to 250. I will try and keep everyone posted thru the smoke ride.


    Started with a yellow mustard massage to allow my own season dry rub to stick.


    Rubbed down and ready for the smoker


    In they go. 2 to 1 mix of mesquite and apple chips. Sun is just now waking up. See you guys later.

  3. Thanks gunkle. Its been a while since i have posted anything. Hope it goes well. :biggrin:
     
  4. Four Hours in. Here is a juicy shot of mid term butt. Top piece is 150F. Looking strong.


    Getting ready to start on the Shiner no 97 since the weather is soggy.

    If you're looking, you're not cooking.   Check probe tender around 195* and see if it needs more.   Looks great though!
     
  6. Just opening up midway for photo op. Next time will be to finish them off. I typically shut the door and let it go until temp is reached. Got a moisture pan so the meat doesnt dry out.

    Looking good waiting for the finale!
     
  8. While we are waiting. Temp is about 195. About time to check the butts.
     

  9. First one done after 10 hours. Great bark and pulled apart great. The bone came out clean as a whistle.


     

  10. Second one took an extra hour. Same results. Fed the fam and they loved it. Hope you enjoyed the views. Any feedback is welcome.
