    Hello folks!

    Have two Boston Butts on the WSM for the first time. 

    Loaded the charcoal ring with 20 lbs of KB, apple and cherry chunks. Pan is full with water. Wasn't paying close attention but it took around 30-45 min. to get TBS. Steady as she goes at 225°F. KC rub on one, Emeril's Original Essence w/brown sugar on the other. Not sure if I will foil or not, will see how things go, though I'm leaning towards not. Probably after 4 hrs of smoking I'll spritz every hour or so, if I'm awake that is :) No meat probe... will use the thermapen to track IT. It's going to be a long night..... right now it's 66°, down to 58° between 4 - 5 am and climbing back up to 77° by noon, 0% chance for rain. To keep me busy, soon I'll be slicing 9 lbs eye of round for jerky.





    Hopefully everything goes well........ we shell see [​IMG]

    [​IMG]   Not exactly smooth sailing, though everything will be OK. Fell asleep sometime after 3:00 am (230° bbq) and ended up taking about a 3hr nap (going with, "I'm only human"). First thing I see is 178° smoker temp [​IMG]. After about an hour was back in business and she's holding at 235° (7:46am) right now. Updated q-view and IT reading in the next post.

    The birds are singing, sun is shinning and the butts are smelling good!

    [​IMG]   It only took 17 hrs but it's done.... pulled the one on the right at 203° 


    Right before going in the cooler


    I can't believe the WSM is still chugging along after I fired it up close to 18hrs ago

    The second butt is one stubborn sob!
