    Here is a 9# butt that is just about to go on the ECB.. Been marinading in a wasabi mustard all night and this morning i gave it a good rub. the smoke is going to be apple. weather here today is gonna be HOT in the 90's and my painting project is going slow, keep finding a lot of wood that needs replaced.

    got 160' of new gutter coming and a bunch of siding so i'm one busy mudder, heck of a vacation can't wait for monday to go back to work

    anyways here comes da butt

    Looking good! We'll have all of PA smelling good.

    BTW I checked out your pics of the venison hind quarter. Wish I could have tried a bit. Makes me consider violating a few game laws. (Just kidding. Don't call the WaCO's)

    Looks good, are you going to pull or slice, largest I've done is 61/2lbs. Just
    curious on cooking times and temps and whether you foil or not. I have taken
    mine to 200° and pulled but I haven't foiled like people talk about

    just sprayed and probed, temps at 155-160 depending where you put the thermometer, 'bout ready to foil unless it hit the plateau..been spraying with a mix of sweet apple cider and the rest of the boones farm apple blossom wine(hic).

    Nice update, you say foil unless it plateaus? I find that foil helps thru the plateau faster, doesnt dry out as bad waiting for it to get thru![​IMG] Keep us updated.

    Just pulled it out of the cooler after it rested for an hour and WOW HOT HOT HOT stuck the thermometer in for S-G and it was 210. put it on a tray and let set for 15 mins and grab the bone, slid right out, and practically fell apart not much effort was used to shred..and tasty MMMMMMMMMMMM-mmmmmmmm man was it good.

    i ran out of lump cause i forgot to pick some up, only had a half bag, so i finished it with briquettes which raised my teps to 275 for the last 2 hours but it didn't hurt it may have helped.. took 12 hours and got a ton of work done too so i'm HAPPY

    Grab a bun cause here it comes
