This is a Costco boneless butt. I put it on at 8am EST.

Good luck with your cook. You will always remember your first one :wink:

Good luck with your cook. You will always remember your first one :wink:I don't. But I do remember my first ribs. I'm sure I still have notes from my first butt.

To the OP - good luck with your cook!

I highly recommend keeping a log with notes including weather, recipes, what you did, temperature profiles and anything you want do do differently next time. Your cooks will get better faster if you don't rely on memory from one cook to the next!

Good luck. It should be great as they are hard to screw up.

The butt is at 180° right now. Is it normal to need to add charcoal twice during the cook?

It's very hard to answer that since we don't know what cooker you are using.
