    Smoked my first Boston butt yesterday on my offset and had great results. Smoked the butt until it reached a IT of 160, wrapped it up in foil at that point then I placed it right back in the same spot and let the smoker do its job. Finally hit a IT of 198 and allowed it to rest for about a 1 1/2 in a cooler. The butt had good smoke flavor and very moist as I kept a water pan plus sprayed with apple juice/water every hour. Afterwards the next night called for pulled pork nachos with the leftovers. Beef brisket is the next challenge! Happy smoking..

  11. Looks great and love the nacho idea ;-)

  12. Looks so good! Did you use a rub? Also is there a benefit to the apple juice? New to smoking and havent tried pork butt yet so I'm looking for tips. Also, what does the "Boston" mean? That just a particular cut?

    Congrats on pulling off another successful smoke with a new cut of meat.
    The PP looks good, but I want some of those ribs, they look really good.
    The nachos don't look too shabby either, nice leftovers dish.

    Point for leftovers!
