  1. Hey all. I got a boneless butt yesterday... (all they had at the store) does a boneless butt take just as long? What are some things to look out for when smoking boneless? Gona throw it on in a little bit.. its -4 got my ecb wrapped in blankets. my water dish is filled with sand and to warm the sand i put a little boiling water in the dish.... I also have a beer butt chicken, and about 20 abts that will be going on later. qview to follow. Cheers![​IMG]

    I haven't noticed any difference in cooking times between the boneless, and bone-in butts. The boneless butts are usually tied up with butchers twine so they don't fall apart when smoking. Good luck!

    i've never done one, so i can't give you an exact time, but yes, a boneless butt should be done sooner than a bone-in one (i am saying this becuase i would think they weigh less and also because time/energy isn't spent heating up the bone). keep an eye on your internal temperatures and remove it from the heat when it is in the 190-195 range. rest for at least half an hour and you should be good to go!

    The bonelss butt shouldn't cook to much differently as far as times go. Sounds like your going to pack your ECB plum full!!! Good luck and dont forget the QVIEW!!!!

    I buy my BUTTS by the 2 pack about 17 pounds. 2 BONE IN BUTTS in the package, then I cut them in HALF to get 4 smaller butts to cook in faster times...

    My point is, the big 'bone-ins' don't have the bone running all the way threw, so when cut in half I get 2 with bone and 2 without.... they both cook same time same way, I have seen no difference!!

    In fact I'm doing 4 today...
     
  6. came out pretty good. 4 lbs of butt came out great. beer butt chicken was better than ever. The bird and butt were done way early so i foiled em then wrapped em in a towel then into the cooler for dinner! i smoked some eggs (1st time)as well for breakfast... only took an hour!
