Sounds like you have it down, Be sure and post some pictures
Yup---There's all kinds of ways to do Pork Butts.
The one I show here is just the way I do it, and it's here mostly to give Newbies a base to start with. They can follow it, and make their first Butt as good as anyone's.
That's basically what all of my Step by Steps are for:
"Bear's Step by Steps".
I agree with Bear, lots of ways to do PB's My advice is Keep It Simple at least till you are comfortable with your smoker and smoking, then try different types and methods.
Biggest problem I see is people over thinking and making it complicated. Just keep it simple and evjoy
Hey Bear, what is your methos for smoking butt. What IT should it be when i foil it. Also what temp do you smoke. Last time i didn't foil it and it took 12 hours for a four pound butt. That's three hours a pound!! I have MES and smoked at 225, but bumped it up to 260 when it stalled.
What temp did you smoke it at?
Some people don't foil at all. I like a nice bark, but not a thick hard bark, so I generally foil at around 165° IT.
If you go to the beginning of this thread, you can see my Step by Step of my whole process, from start to finish.
Bear, I'm trying out your method today. I just hit 203 but the bone isn't quite loose yet. I'm gonna give it another degree or 2 then drop back to 100. I did sneak a bite a few minutes ago and it tastes pretty amazing!!!!
Thanks for taking the time to post the imstructions.
Followed the Bear Tracks and Pork Butt came out as advertised. See my post by Twoalpha, Pork Butt on the MES of today. Great directions and very tasty.
Very Nice Great Color
Sorry I missed this, Joe!!
Glad you liked it, and also happy I could help!
Looks Great, Larry!!
Glad my method works good for you!!
Man that looks good !!
Thanks Bear. Tried this today and finally got the wife's approval on my butt.
That's Great !!!
You got her approval---You're in good shape!!
Funny thing about "The Approval" My wife will tell me Quit smoking everything, so I'll lay off for awhile then she will say "I'b like to have some Smoked ? " whatever she is in the mood for.
Excellent step by step! My next butt will be a real butt, not the little baby butts I've been doing. I will definitely follow your procedure on it. Thanks so much for sharing your expertise Bear. David.
Thank You David!!!
Glad you like it---I'm always happy to help.
Don't let me miss it when you post it.
Thank you brother, proud to have served....The step by step pork smoking is so helpful to us rookies.. good info well done. In the process of smoking 4 butts today put them on 9:00 AM got all 4 in my 30" MES. hoping to finish by !0:00 PM. The largest is 7 lbs down to 5.5 lbs. what does the danger zone mean I'll post again @2;00
The Danger Zone is when meat is between 40° and 140° Internal temp.
If you inject or probe the meat, or break the seal in any way before you cook or smoke it, you have to treat it like Ground Meat. You have to get it from 40° IT to 140° IT in no longer than 4 hours.
If you don't inject it or break the seal before you start, you don't have to worry about how long it takes to go from 40° IT to 140° IT.
Well brother,it's now 2;25 pm internal temp in largest piece is 175.. going to remove butts and double foil wrap em...do you think spraying them with apple juice before wrapping ? Also putting in oven @ 225 lets me leave the smoker open for the other butts. going to be 6 in all.
