Just finished up 2, 10lb butts. Ran perfectly at 1.6hrs/lb. Ran these on an electric smoker (MES). My smoker decided it did not want to smoke much due to the temperature, etc. I will certainly be fixing that... The meat had very little smoke ring and very little smoke flavor IMO for smoking in 100% Mesquite. Also, the meat was very boring tasting. It might be that there was not smoke flavor to flavor the pork but there was just a taste of , well, pork... I used a rub and injected. I noticed the butts dumped a large amount of liquid while cooking. Probably 1-2 quarts between the two of them. I had been doing a sear and decided not to and was not real happy with my bark. It was certainly there but was soggy and not very flavorful. By searing, I was able to maintain a firm bark that had nice texture. Also noticed that these butts where not just dripping with moisture. I pulled them at 190* and did not really check them say at 180*. They were so tender that I had trouble getting them out of the smoker in one piece. Literally falling off the bone... I am wondering if I waited a bit too long? Any thoughts on the bla flavor and if the smoke would fix most of this? My whole reason for not searing was to infuse smoke and it did NOT happen.... Will eat it anyway but a little embarrassed on this run..
