My first butt

That's some dedicated cooking Starwalt! Do you have a temperature probe in it or just going by time? I have never cooked on a WSM, just offsets. My butts usually take around 10 hours, longest one about 12.

Sounds like you might be having PP for lunch today, what temperature are you cooking to? Anxious to hear about the final results.

well was hoping for PP for dinner, but its at 170 degrees now. 190 is the prefered final temp right? I was expecting atleast a 12 hour cook time, possible 16 hours. I think I was wrong. we may have to have it for lunch and dinner. The water pan was bone dry when I checked it 30 minutes ago, except for a little bubbling pork fat, and the smoker was running a sultry 330 degrees or so. dumped hot water in the bowl replaced lid and its right back at 245. The wind has died so no more need for the barrel.

Re: My first butt

I generally shoot for the high 190's to low 200's for a done temp. Can't go wrong with 200. Good luck.

Re: My first butt

So, you have learned that no need to cook at 225 unless you just wanna wait, and wait, and wait. Next time, try empty water pan, no sand, no water. Just wrap pan with foil. That is a simple way to good food too. Sounds like you will eat GOOD tonight.

Re: My first butt

Pics as promised. I'll say I think I did a rather good job here. I think the bark got a bit dark because at some point through the night, but before 6:30 am when I got out there, the pan ran out of water. I did pick some off, but afterwards wished I hadnt, it didn't taste burnt. This stuff was good and I think I am hooked on my smoker!

Re: My first butt

Looks perfect starwalt12, and some good pictures. The black is not burnt, folks pay big money for that at your local BBQ restaurant. Just mix it in as you pull it. I like the hoagie roll, makes for a man-sized sammie. BTW you do have to put your pictures in the reverse order you want them to display.

Which seems only right with some of the bass-ackward people you run into on this board.
