    I'm on a Tejas wood smoker. Been on for nearly 6 hours at 225, or so.. Been trying to keep it regulated but it's been kinda fluctuating. Been as hot as 275, think I've finally got where I need it. First time using this smoker. Any tips on making this butt fall apart?
  2. Have to figure 2 hours per pound, and then another hour after that for the rest, in a bucket wrapped in foil and covered with towels.

    How big is the butt you have?

    I usually cook to an I T of 205 degrees or until you got decent wiggle with the bone.

    Let us know how it turns out.

    How did it turn out?

    I see this is your first post, so at your leisure would you swing by Roll Call & introduce yourself.

    Then we can all give you a proper welcome!
