  1. Yup, I just rubbed my first butt! Its 7lbs. I injected it with apple juice. Then I rubbed Mustard on the outside. I covered that with applewood rub, pepper, and onion soup. Now its chilling in the fridge. Its going on the smoker around 4 am. Im guessing it will take 12-14 hours to cook. Im going to try to keep the cooking temp between 250 and 275. Im using charcoal and chunks of apple wood. I need to cook till the internal temp is 203, right? I dont plan on foiling. Any tips?

    200-205 internal temp.  Be sure to wrap it up in foil and let set in an empty cooler with towels for at least an hour after it hits the internal temp.

    Jbils is right,don't forget the rest. I foil wrap with some apple juice Captain Morgan mix, double towel wrap and into the,cooler for 1-2 hours. This will allow all the moisture to redistribute. I pull mine off at 195-200....don't like mushy PP.

    I highly recommend JJ'S finishing sauce.

  4. Sweet! Thanks for the info.
