    So...attempted my first butt yesterday. I am so hooked!
    I wanted it to be done some time before lunch today with enough time to rest so The butt went on at 6:30. It was 8.78 lb, bone in butt, rubbed with yellow mustard, something I was skeptical about, and a generous helping of my rub creation.
    Smoked at 225*. I stayed up till about midnight. The. Went to bed and got up every hour and half to inspect and maintain. At about 4 AM I was still in the plateau and even though I was determined to ride it out in the smoker without foiling, I was afraid I was going to miss an alarm and let my temps get too low. I had to sleep with my phone literally under my cheek in order to wake me up! :D So I pulled the butt, and put it the oven to finish. I finally reached temp around 9:30 and wrapped it with towels and put it in a cooler to rest. At noon the wifey and I couldn't wait anymore and pulled it.
    Grabbed the bone and after a couple shakes everything just fell away!
    Pulled the pork and discovered a bowl of happiness! Lol!

    Thanks for letting me share!
