Monday Night at the Butt Cook

Off today and tomorrow so last night I dug out a couple of butts that were at the bottom of the freezer. I began thawing them last night in a cooler of water. Tonight the core temp of the butts are 32 deg.

This is cook is similar to the one that cleglue did.

The difference is that I am using a uds instead of a wsm. It will be interesting to see how much faster the uds will cook the butts at similar internal temps.

Looks good Cliff. Hoping to do a few buts this weekend...thanks for the motivation. I may also throw on a roast of some sort or a brisket.

Off at 2:00. Even the mighty UDS is no match for a frozen butt.

Total cook time for two average size butts that were 32 deg at the core..... 17 hours at 220-230 on a uds that would have cooked thawed butts in 10 hours or less.

I had issues with the fire which caused the uds to run at lower temps than I would normally target. I have no doubt that if I had used my wsm I would still be in the plateau if I had targeted the same grate temps.
