Pork Butts with Q-View

  1. Well, I decided to try my hand with pork butts.....and they came out AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

    I rub'd them down the night before, covered and refrig.

    I am using my "kettle to the god's" WSM 22.5. Got up at 4:00 a.m. this morning and fired up the good girl.

    I bought them from Sam's club for $27.00, they were (2) 7.5 lbs each.

    At 9:00 a.m. checked temp, they were at about 145....Squirted a little appel juice from time to time


    I decided @ 10:00 a.m to wrap with foil....the only reason why was b/c I was going to be in church...and since they were at temp, why not.

    At 4:00 p.m. open up and checked temp they were @ 210 deg.


    I then proceeded to wrap in towels and put in cooler. I left them in cooler for about 1:45 mintues. then open up and let them set for about 15-20 min.

    Then I proceeded to shred.


    Happy Eating!!!!!!!

    Wow, amazing stuff.  Can you clarify something?  What time did you put the pork on?  What temp were they when you wrapped them in foil?

    Thanks for the Qview.  Looks great!
  3. Oh yeah huh...sorry about that, I put them on at 5:00 a.m. ,they were around 145-150 when I foiled
  4. That looks excellent Lub! If I were on death row I swear my last meal would be home smoked boston butt.

    Nice smoke... I have one on now.. I decided not to foil and I'm paying the price, I put it on at 7am and it is at 189 at 8:45pm.  I'm hoping to get a taste of it before 11pm..

    raptor700, It hit 201 at 1030pm 15.5hrs for a 5lb Pork shoulder. I brought it in the house and pulled it right away, no rest time and it was one of the best pork smokes I have done.  The Bark was amazing.. I will probably never foil a butt or shoulder again.    Sorry for the highjack..
