First long pork butt smoke

  1. I always rushed my butts cause lack of time and attention span.  Never had one that I could pull, always had to slice.  Now that I have my GMG Daniel Boone pellet pooper,  I figured Id give it a shot.  Rubbed down yesterday morning.  Dropped it in the smoker at 1AM and went to bed.  Just checked it and its sitting pretty at 188 degrees 9 hours in.  No foil by the way, didn't even inject it, trying to keep it simple.  [​IMG]

    That's a beauty!

    Looking forward to the finale!
  5. Turned out great! Super tender, moist and the bone pulled clean.  I figured it would be a bit on the dry side since I didn't inject it, but it wasn't at all.  Didn't get the bark that I was wanting, I used that "sugar in the raw" stuff instead of brown sugar in my rub since I wasn't planning on foiling during the smoke. Pulled at 200, wrapped and let it rest for about an hour.   Pictures are with my phone so they aren't very good.
