Thumbs up I like Big Firecracker Butts - Happy 4th!

Didn't get started at the crack of dawn, but a bit earlier than planned, which is good - I've got 20 pounds of Pork Butt to get smoked today!

I'll pop up some fresh pron here every so often.

Here they are a 7:30 when I got them on.
So looking forward to some good ole pulled pork!




And here's a look at 8:30 - 1 hour in.

Two hours in, the temps are calming down to where I want them.
Bark is starting to form up nicely.

Thanks guys!

I decided to double check the temps with my super-accurate, lightning-fast YELLOW Thermapen - I wasn't believing the probe temps. Well, they are still a bit further along than I expected, but are about 10* lower than the probes are reporting. Always a good idea to check a few locations in those big butts.

Here they are after 3 hours...

Nice! Sounds good Chad. And I thought 20 was a lot.

Man, is it getting hot out there!
Love this new house though - I can see my smoker from the kitchen so don't have to babysit as much as I used to. It is a LOT nicer in the house right now, that's for sure!

Here's mine after 4 hours.

Enjoy Eddie. Hope it's not too darn hot where you are. I just checked here - 95* in the shade.

Here are the butts after 6 hours...
