Looks good thus far, needs a bit more time. You have a long day ahead of you. Keep us posted.

Been 6 hrs and internal temp is 170F
I think it will take another 1.5 to 2 hours to hit 185.

Ok
Just hit the 8 hour mark and internal temp is 180F.
Wrapped it in HDF to let it finish.
Looked good and juicy still
Should be done in an hour

Dinner is served!!!
Tastes awesome
Only thing is it wasn't exactly fall off the bone tender. Could of used another hour or two.
But for my first time is say it was a victory for me.

Sounds like a winner Sir. Was a bit apprehensive on it being a bit salty..depending on the brine components..temps..duration and how salty is the rub. Butts are hard to hurt. Glad it came out good. Little more cooking is always good for butts or seems so. When it coughs up the 3 D looking flying saucer bone fairly easy is a good sign on when its ready.
