    Got this 10# Butt on sale for $1.49/lb. Followed Bearcarvers directions and final results were Tender and Tasty.

    The MES and AMNPS makes for a great smoke.

    Probe with hand IT between 203 and 206 and felt like soft butter. Going to be good.

    Finished in 14.5 total hrs. with a one hour rest. Bone pull free. Carving this up for the plate.

    Money muscle is sliced and in the lower part of the picture. Talk about good. MMMMMMM

    Hot potato salad and tomato for the meal.

    Thanks for looking.

    Fantastic.  Do you make those squares in the meat or does it come with them?

    I made the cuts in the fat cap to better hold and allow the seasoning to get into the meat.
