4 Butts on the WSM

Sunday morning I got up at 1:40 AM and started the fire in the WSM. While it was getting to temperature I rubbed down the butts with mustard and TexasBBQrub. I put the 4 butts on at 2:25AM. I had a time getting the temperature regulated for the next few hours. Finally about 5AM it seemed to maintain about 225 to 230. I left for church at 8 AM and left the wife to regulate the heat. I told her to keep it between 225 and 250. She was able to maintain it at about 240. When I got back from church around 11 AM the butt on the top rack was at 155 the other about 3 degrees lower. I wanted to take them off at about 1:30 and let them rest for an hour…WELL…I increased the heat to about 280 at 11 AM. One butt was at 195 at about 1:30 two others were at about 190 at 1:50. I was able to pull and chop at about 2:20PM . I wish I had time to let them rest for an hour but that wasn’t going to happen because the family get together was a 3:00PM. I pulled and chopped. The first butt was the best the others were ok. The last one was at 195 when I left to go to the family get together so I just closed the vents on the WSM and pulled it off about an hour later (I left the get together for alittle while to tend to the last butt).

I will start even earlier next time or run the smoker hotter from the start. I should have given myself 2 hours a pound as suggested. The butts were 7 to 8 pounds a piece except one was 9 pounds.

Here are the pictures.

Some company sure would have been great. Sometimes the wee hours of the morning get a little lonely especially the 2 AM hour.
