Did my first butts today with Q view

  1. Evening folks, after moths of preparation and looking for the right recipe i finally decided to tackle some butts. Needless to say this forum was very beneificial as i pulled bits of information from everywhere.

    Anyhow i rubbed them down with mustard and then injected them with cider vinegar and brown sugar mix. Put on a generous coating of my rub and wrapped them over night. I injected them again before they went on the smoker. I smoked them using pecan between 225-250. It took right at 9 hrs for them both to get 195. They were wrapped in foil at 165. After i pulled them off the smoker they i let them rest for an hour. I pulled them and used a finishing sauce. They were awesome and i was thrilled at the results!! If you want specifics just ask.

  3. Schaydu,

    I have the same thermometer as you.  I noticed that you have the wires wrapped in foil.  Any particular reason?
     
  4. Thanks Pops. That can works great! I couldnt find anything with big enough holes in it so i figured i would just make one haha

    Bubba, i read somewhere on here that wrapping the wire will help protect the wire from damage. It was just one of those easy preventative type things that i figured i would do. I dont know how well it works, but hey what can it hurt? haha

    That's some good lookin pork.

    The foil wrap does protect the wires a bit. Also be sure and do not crimp them when closing the lid on the smoker.
