Butts


About 10 pounds each. Just a simple rub on them






After about 14 hours. Yes, I went back to "old school" 225 pit temperature-marathon cook.








These 4 should explain themselves.



Then, the batteries died.

One never did want to go over 185, but it was great as chopped pork. The other fell apart while I was taking it off the grate.

How much fuel did you use on that monster to cook 2 butts?

I'm not really sure. There was some charcoal in there when I started. I fired up the old, and dumped 20 pounds on top of the burning old. I set the valve to what I expected 250 to be, and then I went inside and proceeded to fall asleep.

Very early the next morning, the temperature was sitting right at 225, so that's when I decided to cook it that low. When I was finished, there was more charcoal left than when I started, but I don't know how much. I figure the it ran about 26 hours and I cooked for about 16ish hours. Somewhere in the middle, I put in a foil pack with new 'taters, some Duke's Double D Rub, and some butter. I guess I opened the door about 5 times during the cook, and less than 20 pounds of charcoal.

Dang good fuel consumption. You ever play aound with the Mejico mesquite lump which comes in the forty pound bags? Bet it would be just what the doc would prescribe for your Pit.

Two fine looking butts Bob but they do look a tad lonely in there. How was the bark, from where I'm sitting I bet really good. Let us know.

Toby, the bark was good. Harder and firmer than I am used to, but about what I like. I need to save up some money and fill it up with meat.

BW, I'd rather start my fires with "Match Light" than pollute my pit with that noxious weed.
