    I know the pictures aren't the greatest. I used pecan wood. I have noticed pecan doesn't leave as much smoke ring as hickory. We were in a hurry to get over to a party. I pulled at 198°. I noticed a huge difference between that and 205. It didn't pull that well. I defatted the drippings then mixed it in with pork. Waa good but its no brisket.

    Ahhh too bad you had to pull so early...I have been there before too....where at that point I ask my guests if they care to wait another hour or two, or order pizza and my wife and I could have some great sammies all week long! LOL

    They always opt for waiting it out....just can beat a perfectly cooked pork butt!

    Looks good, regardless......I've been on a cherry wood kick lately. Nice color to the finished meat and fairly mild IMO.....Willie
