    GOT smoke, nice to have you with us on SMF.
    As for your pork butt, don't give up as butts are very forgiving. Sound like a temp problem to me, possibly undercooked. Get your self a couple digital therms, and check your cooker temp at the grate you were cooking on and then see what the gauge on your smoker says. Some are off as much as 100 degrees. Also put a probe in you meat and take a butt to 175-180 to slice and 200-205 to pull. Use of a therm will help you achieve a great end result.

    GOT Smoke - Welcome aboard, the people here are very helpfull, they have assisted me in many first time smokes that I had to do for parties, ones where I did not buy the meat, and did not want to screw it up and have to pay for it myself (like 64 lbs of Prime Rib)

    Smokeys my pet - looks like were neighbors!

    Welcome to SMF! Hmmm that roast... did you use rub? Inject? Mop? Did it have any fat on it? what temp did ya pull it off at? We've got questions too, yanno...fill us in and I'll wager we'll have you AND the Outlaws happy!

    Enjoy, and help us help you!
     
  17. no fat, rub, the temp was at 170 when i pulled it out

    It probably could have used some fat...kinda like doing a loin. When I do this type of lean cut, I wrap in bacon over my rub, or use a technique known as "larding/barding". It's basically inserting fat strips into the meat. Also you did not mention a mop. Mopping isimportant for the retention of moisture, and also the development of "barq" on the outside. And 170's about 10 degrees low for slicing BBQ. What was your smoker temp? You want around 225-250.
     
  19. the smoker was at 250 mopping with what? i will try the bacon thanks
