Default Butcher Paper Wrapped Pork Butt

Decided to try a pork butt cooked using butcher paper. I cut off the money muscle and cooked both pieces in the smoker for about 3 hours at ~280* then wrapped it in butcher paper after slathering it with a little Shack sauce mixed with butter and rub.

Here is the butt after wrapping.

Here is the finished butt. It took about 8 hours to finish cooking and a 1 hour rest in a cooler.

Here is the MM.

Here is a late pic taken after dinner of the left over pulled pork I'm saving for tomorrow's lunch.

Over all, the BBQ is really tasty. The bark is definitely a cut above using foil.

It's close to the bark you get when cooking pork low and slow directly over the heat source. The fat rendered out nicely too.

What I didn't like was how long it took to cook. The MM only needed about an hour while wrapped and it was done. The larger portion of the butt required about 5 more hours. I'm not a big fan of spending that much time cooking nowadays.

I will give it another try but will make some adjustments in an attempt to reduce the amount of cook time needed.

Thanks for looking.
