    Found a nice 6 lb Butt at a local market. Saturday it rained so I decided to do this on Sunday instead.
    Rubbed it down, let it rest in the refrig overnight and then into the BEESR at 7:15am.
    Everything went well but unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate.
    46 degrees with wind and some pretty good rain in the afternoon, so I had to bump it up to 12 to get it an IT of 202. It took a little over 10 hours.
    And now the pics.

    Hickory and apple Pellets, about a 50/50 mix.

    Chugging along.

    I was cooking keilbasa too (that's another thread. )

    And here comes the rain.....

    Two thermometers, one read 199 and the other 202. Time to come out.

    FTC for about 45 minutes. I was hungry.

    Money shots.

    This was fantastic! Love the CT too!
    Thanks for looking.
