    Was gonna have the neighbors over for some pulled pork and watch the Gator Girls slap 'Bama around some [​IMG]

    Lathered up the butt with some yellow mustard then some Bad Byrons butt rub. My propane conversion GOSM has a new single burner hot plate, so still working on adjusting temps, plus with the heat, the smoker can show 100º on the temp gauge before I even light anything.

     Used Cherry and Pecan for this smoke. Temps varied from 220 to 285º, probably averaging 250º. I wanted to try something that I did in the past that seemed to work, so why not again. Put it on at 9 AM.


    Spritzed it real good with Apple Cider Vinegar and Makers Mark. Wrapped in heavy duty foil and returned to the smoker. This is where I made my move, changing the temp to 285º while in the foil.

     By 4:30 at a total of  7 1/2 hours my Pork Butt was finished at a temp of 207º internal. Wrapped in towel and placed in the cooler until 6:30 PM for dinner.

    Did rushing it, over the tried and true "Low and Slow" make a big difference.
