First Pork Butt
« on: June 17, 2011, 06:28:33 AM »
So I finally had the time to do a pork butt. I picked up a 7 1/2 lb bone in butt from Fresh Direct. Rubbed it down with some dry mustard, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, brown sugar, wrapped it in saran, and let it sit overnight. I cooked it in the Bradley OBS w/my Auber PID (finally was able to figure out how to use the Aber dual probe PID thanks to the posts on this site, a big thank you!) I smoked it for at 220 for 5 hrs with a 2:1 maple/hickory and then continued at 220 to an IT of 190. FTC'd for 3hrs and pulled it. Made a SC Mustard Sauce to go with it and it came out great. A big thank you again to everyone on this site, reading all the helpful posts made this so much easier!!

Looks like a perfect butt from here. Now on to the next smoke. What's it gonna be??
