1st OBS Smoke- Pork Butts
« on: March 01, 2010, 08:10:03 am »
Hello gang!

I was around here all last week picking your brains and figuring things out- I did my 1st ever smoke/1st OBS smoke this weekend.
For the initial seasoning my bisquettes were not feeding, but a quick call to Bradley and we found it was just a loose connection from shipping- 5 min fix.

I was only able to find 5 lbs butts, I grabbed two. (1 8lb would have been ideal for me).

I used: Pecan Bisquettes, Maverick ET-7 and a couple bricks.
It was about 30 degrees and snow flurries, but the Bradley held the temperature perfect, I was pretty impressed.

Overall cook time was about 16/17 hrs to get to 190F and then 5 hrs FTC.

I used the "Vaunted vinegar" sauce as well as Habaneros rub that has been linked to a few times. Turned out perfect and the pork was a hit!

First pic is both butts after smoke finished, 2nd is smaller butt before FTC and last is the final product.

Thanks!

I cant say enough how pleased I am with the OBS. I didnt expect such great results on my first try. Next up will probably be brisket.

I can definitely see how a PID is handy for overnight smokes!
