    I was reading some posts trying to find answers on smoking butts and ribs. First should i marinade a butt?. Also mye mes says to wrap ribs in foil and continue to cook wont this almost steam the meat? I had read one post about a butt and the poster had said he wrapped the butt in foil to finish just wondering why and for how long? sorry my question is so long im just tryin not to suck thanx again

    I foil my butts at 165*, take them to 205*, then let them rest for 1-2 hours. It can take 12+ hours.

    I was going to do a Prime Rib for Mom tomorrow, but since the family is headed over to my Aunt's house I picked up a 10# butt. This is the largest one I've ever attempted, and I have no idea how long it's going to take.

    I have two four pounders that I will be putting in the smoker in a few hours. I've done a couple before, didn't marinate them. I put some of Jeff's dry rub on them and let them sit in the fridge. I'm going to inject one of them with apple juice and spritz both with the same. Simple, I'm just experimenting a little. One will be for Mom on Sunday, the other is for supper tomorrow night. If they finish early enough, pulled pork pizza. If not, just sandwiches for supper.

    Like mythmaster, I will be foiling at around 165 and then bring to 200-205. Rest in the cooler for as much time as I have.
