  1. Pulled out a small bone-in Butt and rubbed my own, home-made dry rub on this at 8am, pulled it off at 6:30!  Wow, just cannot get any better.

    I've smoked so many butts over the last couple of years and have always had great success with this method:
    1. Rinse and pat dry.
    2. Keep the fat pad up, slice into the pad about 1" square, don't worry about pretty, the bark will be covering :)
    3. Coat liberally with yellow mustard - this acts as a binder for the rub and adds a little flavor.
    4. Rub - the love - on the outside that feels good on the inside!  I make my own and contrary to popular opinion it has brown sugar in it, about 1/3 brown sugar to 2/3 pretty good spices and seasonings.  (I never inject)
    5. While I normally will prep a day ahead and let the meat sit overnight to soak in the rub, this time I did not, it went straight into a pre-heated smoker set at 220 degrees.  I plugged in an instant read digital and let it smoke.
    6. Again, contrary to popular opinion I did not spritz - why wet the bark?  The smoke is sealing the meat and if it is cooked low enough there is no drying out.  But when the temp gets in the 190-200 range it is ready for pulling.
    7. Grab the tongs, quarter turn of the bone and it pulls out clean. 
    8. Enjoy!
    This weekend it will be ribs!

    Isn't it amazing how we can compliment one another's butts on this forum, and not get into any trouble? [​IMG]
