Default 12 HR Smoked Pork Butt. (Pron Galore)

Thanks to all the help ive gotten from this site ive been successful at my first butt & overnight cook. Wednesday night i purchased a nice 8.2 pound butt from a local butcher shop, didnt need any trimming.



Took out the spices and rubbed it everywhere




Prepared the smoker with Royal oak, 4 cherry wood and 1 apple. I also added 4 firebricks inside to help retain the heat as it was windy and cold at night.



I started the fire at about 11:30 friday night. Loaded the butt inside. The alum pan has apple juice, the spices from the marinade and the natural juices from the butt that i guess let out while it was resting in the fridge?



Soon after it started to look like this




At about 2am it looked liked this.




mmm, the drippings.



This was at 8:30 am. When normal people wake up
By this the the IT was about 175, it had passed its stall.






Here it as about 10:30 approx 190 IT.



At 12:30 IT was 200 and was probe tender like no other, ready to be foiled and wrapped into the container to keep warm.



Got my hands in there and tore that butt up.





So how was my first overnight cook? well i woke up every 2 hours to reload on coals. The wireless thermostat was set at 215-325. My small basket needed loading every 2 hours, the wind didnt help either. The butt was very good, the bark was fantastic. One thing i will do different is light up less coals for the minion method so i get the fire to gradually build. It was a tad bit dry, i think i may have cooked it too long? or the butt to begin with didnt have too much fat? Next time i will use the alum pan to allow the butt to bathe in the fat. Well i hope you are enjoyed it, i sure did.

Thanks.

Nice looking butt, if you run the pit temp to 275 it would have been done in about 6 hrs and retained more moisture. at those low temps your warming it to death and drying it out over time.JM2C I'm a rookie I've only been doing this stuff for 32 yrs

It's better to do it "hotter and faster" instead of "cooler and longer"?
Hhmm...My target temp for just about everythign is around the 225 mark.
Based on this, maybe I should try 275???

Thanks!
Bob

Thanks alot guys. Yes i am using a DSLR, a 5D II. I was aiming for 275-300 but the lump went crazy right from the start, i used one to many lit coals in the basket so they all lit up very fast. I had to take some out and gradually put them back in. Next time... Thank u
