    It's time for my first pork butt in the MES tomorrow.  I've read a lot of post and step-by-step how to's so I think I can make this a success.  I have been using my chargriller duo for about 2 years now, but have never tried a butt yet, a little nervous.  I asked the woman to pick up a butt and she brought me a picnic shoulder, go figure, so I'm gonna pick up a butt today and try both at the same time.  If you have any suggestions for me, let me hear it.  I'm all ears!  I'll try to post pics as I go.

    Wish me luck!

    Assuming you are making pulled pork, my advice would be not to rush, go by internal temperature and not time in smoker.

    200F - 205F and it will pull beautifully.

    Have fun and post us some pics of this butt-fest.

    Thanks for the advice. I'm trying to remember the pics. Lol. Should I pull and wrap or let it go? If I pull it, what temp is good to pull?
