    i'm wanting to smoke a 6# butt,,,,do i need to smoke it the whole 5 hrs
    ?
     
  2. I checked the [​IMG]  and it is your butt so you can smoke it as long as you want. I smoke the whole time and I don't foil. You said 5 hours. I hope you know it is probably going to take a lot longer than that unless you are high temp smoking.

    Happy smoken.

     I think you'll find cooking to internal temp the best way especially for butts.  I always foil mine at 165 IT, pulling at 203-205 resting in an empty ice chest for at least one hour 2 or 3 is better.

    Thread is titled pork roast. I assume you don't want pulled pork. If that's the case you need to take it out at a temp where you can still slice it 180-190.

  6. Hey garry, something I do sometimes, (Wife gets tired of everything smoked so she will cook a pork butt in the crick pot, usually after we have a meal or two I take the rest put it in an aluminum pan, pull it, add a little liquid and on the smoker for a couple of hours, You get the smoke infused all through the meat
