Pork Butt on a Weber kettle

  1. Back from vacation and missed the BBQ. ...so I ran out this AM grabbed a butt, put it on for 8 hours and served it up with a choice of homemade and commercial sauces, some beans, and potatoes for the Dallas game.

    Could be the pic, but that looks like a small pork butt?

    Like MossyMO, I have never done a butt on the kettle?  Lots of ribs, chix and CSR's, but never a butt.

    From the last pic, it appears you did just fine!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Weber kettles are awesome smokers using indirect heat!  That's how I got my start.  Great job on the smoke there!!!!

    Very nice !!!!!!   Now I am hungry again...
  6. It was a small one - only 4 lbs - which was great. The only "trick" I've learned about the Weber is to wrap the meat after about 4 hours.  It softens the bark but ensures it stays on a nice climb to the finish temp.

    I also threw a couple of Jimmy Dean's sausage "logs" on for a few hours that I can fry up with some eggs for breakfast over the next few days.

    Nothing better than pulled pork and a huge Cowboys loss!! But then again, being an Eagles fan, I have no room to talk.
