monday afternoon smoke

mondays are my sundays so I thought I'd throw a butt on. I'm cooking for my granny's 90th birthday in a couple weeks and could use the practice (see my last butt thread). just a 4 1/2 pound, sprayed with apple juice and a dry rub I made. went a little over board with the rub but it'll be alright. been on since 9:30 am using lump, apple wood and a bit of cherry as well.








it hit the plateau about a half hour ago. updates when it's done.

You may still have 3 hours to go. Not sure though. Here is a chart of a butt I did last year.

You can probably kick the smoker temperature up to 270 and still be OK. I'm sure others will help if you need it done sooner.
