I have been waiting forever to do this, I have done about everything else but a butt on the MES. I called around for prices and found a range form 1.68 - 2.99 a pound. Sam's was 1.68 and Krogers was 1.69 Albertons were 2.49 yikes, and the worst was Sunflower Market which is a regional health food chain at 2.99, holy [email protected]#@ batman. I chose Kroger since I really only want one and not to have to freeze one. Here it is rubbed with mustard, garlic powder, paprika, brown sugar, lemon pepper, and cayanne. It was an eight pounder with no fat cap. I then seared it here for about 10 minutes, and put into the smoker. It's in the smoker with this, Baked Beans. I used Bushes Boston style, they were on sale, drained some juice, 2 cans 28 ounce, 1 onion sauteed, about 1 cup brown sugar, and 1 cup Lone Star BBQ sauce I had with smoked brisket. I would usually use bacon, but this is just as good. After about 3 hours I added some Mexican blend cheese to the beans and the butt is at 146' and I spritzed the butt 3 times. I am using Hickory, mesquite, and some Apple for chips, and about 4 mesquite charcoal briquettes. Will be posting more QVIEW as it happens. Thanks for reading. Wish me luck!
