Bunch of Butts

Couple of questions for you:

In the past you have trimmed the fat for extra bark. These don't look to be trimmed. Are they? Have you changed your process ?

SoEzzy gave me some good advice in a catering section thread, so how are you going to handle the cooling/packing process, that is IF you are going to cool and pack.

Rather then trimming the fat cap all the way offf...I did trim it down..then I scored it like you would a ham..or "crowned" it......

I might also "foil" these at some point
just trying some new techniques out...

After seeing that my one butt is lonely. They do look good. When did you get another WSM? I guess I missed that post.

I had to pull the lid off and take a peek…one of the butts was reading 20* higher..and I knew something was wrong..the butt had shrunk and I wasn’t carefull where I put the probe..and the probe was sticking out the other side….
Butts are coming along nicely

Not a bad day…the smell of hickory and pork fat…and sharing a good book with D…..

Butts are done and I'm done...I just hit that 24+hrs without sleep…they are now resting in the Red Neck Cambro (Insulated Cooler that was preheated with boiling water and then layered with a towel)..Butts are double wrapped in foil and inside the RN Cambro….The pieces that were stuck to the grate were PDG…..

Dessert today was Ron’s Moms Chocolate Cobbler

Seems like you had a good day there wittdog. Don't get much better than cooking and spending time with the family.

Nice work Dave.

I always seem to stay up way past bed time when I am doing the Q thang.
