View Full Version : My Butt Looks Good

Butts and brisket have been on for about four hours at about 250. Gorgeous brown coloration.

I just foiled them up.

Here is where I have some questions:

Once foiled, are temps as relavent, ie. does it matter if I cook at 250, 300, 350, 400, 500+ now? Does low and slow /hot and fast still give a superior result vs high heat(>350) at this point?

Have you ever had a dried out foiled butt?

Once in the foil the temp really doesn't matter. I'm not sure if I would go above 350 because you can still burn things if you get too hot, but if you are short on time kick he temp up a bit.

C'mon Michael...just sent a bunch of pics yesterday of my chicken wings.:becky:

I don't think we're lacking for pics of butts and briskets:laugh::laugh::laugh:

At this point, all you would see is about $5 worth of foil.

When I get more diverse than butts and briskets, I'll snap some more pics.
