Default I screwed up a butt!

Didn't think it was possible. Started the new NB off set this AM and put on a picnic at 07:15.

Temps were good all day and by hour 5.5 it seemed to get over the stall?

Then the rain started so I moved everything under cover, shouldn't be a problem right.

Well every part of the butt had a different temp. Thought I took it off about 195+ and foiled for an hour. It would not pull at all.

Flavor was just OK, not great, but way too good for the dogs.

Took some for dinner and foiled it and back into the oven for two hours. I would have thought that would bring it over. No Way.

Was getting late so I just pulled what I could and scrapped some. But the meat was cooked differently in different places. Can't really explain it, but some pulled, sort of, and other parts seemed very well done in color, and were tuff.

I cooked a similar butt for my first smoke on the bandera and it was perfect. This one?????

Only difference was where I bought the meat, and of course the pit.

Any thoughts??

Bummer! I've had a few weird experiences over the years like that once in a while. I think sometimes you just get a weird piece of meat that won't cook right.

I have had that happen with meat bought from Sam's Club. I would buy a case or two and some of the butts would not be done and others (approx the same size) on a cooler spot on the cooker would just melt in your mouth. One note, I do check the temperature and it is usally around 195F, but I take it off the cooker when I can twist the bone away from the meat.

Well this must be one of those weird experiences because it's already been verified that it can't be the cook!

I've never seen a piece of meat do anything like this ever.

Picnics need to go to 200± to pull nicely.

I don't like to use picnics for that very reason. Sounds like I haven't cooking them hot enough either.

Thanks for the help. Picnics are all I've been able to find lately, and even if I pulled this a little early, you had to see it to believe it. Sorry, after a long day I just didn't take the time for some prons.

I did a 10 lb picnic last week, it rained halfway through the cook on me too. I moved mine to the oven after about 6 hours on the smoker, because thunderstorms were heavy. Kept oven at 235 for another 6 hours until it hit 190 internal temp. By this time it was 1am and I just put it in the cooler wrapped in foil until the next morning. It pulled apart real easy, the bone came right out.

Nice to know. From what I understand, picnics tend to have a combination of meat "types" - i.e. some that is from the butt and some that will turn out a little "hammy". I did a picnic last weekend and noticed this very thing. It tasted good, but I like butt better myself.
