    1:25 am just put a 8.5# butt on the ECB.. rubbed with jeffs rub with some ground lemon peel, smells awesome.. the temp here is 38 with a very light wind.. the smoke will be hickory to start and apple for the remainder.

    I got it started early for ,plateau anticipation, this way it will be ready when the wife comes home from work at 3 pm if it's done early i will put it into the cooler wrappped in an old quilt so should be a good smoke...also got a couple of fatties to go on at dawn, man my stomachs gurgling now, anyways heres the butt ready to put on

    well guys and gals just took it out of the ECB took 11.5 hrs and it's resting on the table wrapped in a towel.. took it to 200 degrees and it's falling apart in the pan..sorry i didn't get any pics before i wrapped it in foil but the grandson was up and howlin mad fer a bottle, i think the smell of that butt made him hungry, and since i was doin an alnighter i was elected feeder changer burper and all those good things..

    so bring on the view

    It always amazes me at the different times you get when doing a butt. I did a 8 1/2 lb butt while back in my R2D2 and it took only seven hours. A 5 lb one in my GOSM took 9 hours. Of course it was probably 85º outside and no snow. [​IMG]

    temps here hovered at 36-37 degrees plus i got about a 2-3 hour nap and when i woke up my grate temp was only 150 and the butt was 147 so i had to get things fired back up,, oh well it was my first true all nighter, between the butt on the ECB and the grandsons butt and stomach i was busy..

    did get a nice suprise though today the daughter went to wally world and asked if i needed anything and i jokingly said a brisket and lo and behold she brought home a 11# full packer,YIPPEE. now i have not done a good brisket yet but i feel this one will go the distance because it's going on the smoker when i get home from work on wed. and cook all night then in the morning i can throw on the turkey and pork loins too man can't wait for thanxgiving
