Default First Butts of the 2013 Season

Got a birthday party today. Decided to do some pork butts. Wife bought two 5 lbs pork butts. I got them injected and rubbed up last night. Here are the pics form last night:






Char-Griller is up to temp. Meat is on. Updates to come.

Cook is going great. Just to let you all know. I use Kingsford regular charcoal to start up with oak intermixed. I switch over to Hickory and Oak chunks mini logs for the rest of the cook. I will cook til 190°, pull it, foil it and wrap it in a towel and throw it in a cooler to rest.

I would suggest cooking them until they probe tender rather than assuming that they will be done at 190. Most of the time the butts that I cook aren't done until closer to 200, but I go by feel.

Well, I pulled them at 190° and they are in the foil. It was starting to rain and blow pretty good. I will take pics when I pull. Sorry no grill pics.

So the results were excellent. We had a hard time pulling them. It was the first time injecting them, so I don't know if that effected them or not... The meat was very moist. I'm really enjoying the hickory/oak combination. Here are some pics. Sorry I didn't take more. It got real busy real quick.





Hope you all enjoyed the pics. Thanks for looking.

Mine some times hit 205ish before I pull them. 2 firsts in pork this year. If that gives me any credence.

I get nervous with the Char Griller and I really didn't want to push it. The meat was very moist and tender, it just didn't pull like normal. It was very rich and tasted like rib meat. Overall I was very happy with this smoke.

Looks good but it sounds like they were undercooked. Cook them until they probe tender or you can practically pull the bone out with zero effort.

So, question. How do you continue to test the tenderness of the pork, while trying to maintain your steady heat at the end of the cook. I don't want a flare up to char my meat. I guess I played it safe, but really wondering how to end the cook successfully?
