Pickens were slim at Sams the other day. I picked up a cryo pack of 2 butts that weighed in at like 12lbs. These little suckers always cook longer than the 8-9lbers. 16hrs on the egg and could have gone longer. All except the "round" muscle pulled fine. The fatties, abts and pork tenderloins came out great. The tenderloins were seasoned with Plowboy's Yardbird rub, the butts with Butt Rub and the fatties with Rudy's rub. I'll post some pics when I get home tonight.

12 lbs each? Those are some big butts. Nice score.

I think he was saying 12 pounds for the two, and I agree, they do seem to always take longer...

Makes me want to get some rub out and maybe even spank it a few times before I inject it and slap it on the egg!

In Texas we do briskets, but I want to branch out. Any Butt advise? average of 1 hr per pound? what kind of rub or just smoke it? im a pecan fan for smoking, good choice?

You're right down the road from me.

cook them just like briskets, 1.5hr/lb until internal reaches 190-205, or the bone pulls out clean. I usually use Bad Byron's Butt Rub, and pecan will do fine. I've been using cherry lately. Butts are more forgiving than briskets. Harder to mess them up.

Cherry logs at Westlake ACE Hardware on Beach and Basswood. Try the Chris Lilly shoulder recipe. For a single butt, I make 1/2 batch. Do a search it's everywhere. Good injection and I usually use whatever pork rub i have on hand. Go to Cattle Call and introduce yourself if you havn't.
