OBS Mex/Tex Butt
« on: September 23, 2009, 05:18:57 AM »
Yeah i know it should be Tex/Mex But i do things different  ;D This butt is 12lbs and rubbed with salt, pepper and secret mex/tex rub  ;D  :D

Got the skin off.



All rubbed down ready for OBS/PID. I think after the 1 hr 40 mins of smoke and the 5 hrs of 225* heat i will cut it up into chunks and oven it for some mexican carnitas  ;D



In the OBS/PID


Getting 1 hr 20 mins of hickory and 20 mins of messy wood  :P



PID

...and secret mex/tex rub... 

Please, Lord, give me the strength to survive another round of begging for one of nepas' "secret receipts."

Here is the butt at 4.5 hrs. Getting another hour then into the oven to finish the carnitas. The dark run is from my thermapen and juice seaping out.

You have a nice butt there nepas.  ;)  I can't wait to see the finished product.  I think I'm going have to get one of those Auber PIDS.  I've had the temp run away once already.
