If I go 12 hours on the smoke then I can hold it for 4 hours in the cooler or it if goes 11 hours I can hold it 5 hours in the cooler (I generally won't go above 5 hours of holding time). But you live and learn.

    Anyway, I'm sure the meat will be tasty. I've usually really liked reheated butt as long as I have a decent slaw and sauce to go with it on the bun.
    The meat was a big hit.

    A kid who works for me posted this on his facebook page. It's from one of the bigger groups we did this summer, but I'm not sure which one. I cropped him out of it, but saved his belt buckle for you.

    We have a monthly potluck in our ward. I did another pork butt (started at 2:00 am, but it was a cold windy night, so the coals only lasted around 6 hours. I wrapped and finished in the oven with a very small amount of apple juice. It was a hit, and a lot of the guys in the ward are starting to ask about smokers. I mostly tell them to start with a traeger, even though I'm really starting to enjoy my WSM.

    I think I've mentioned this before, but for those of you who have multiple cooking tiers, I made some killer beans to go with the pulled pork.

    In a foil pan below my pork butt, I put:
    3 cans of Bush's Baked Beans--Honey flavor, and
    ~10 ounces of apple juice (stir it up before you put it on)

    They were lights out. I stirred mine when I took the butt off the smoke, then every three or four hours thereafter. I saved around 5 oz. of the juice that rendered off the butt into the foil after wrapping, and added it for moisture/flavor, and man they were good. I kept them covered in the oven (I poked a small hole in the top of the foil because I didn't want condensation to water out the rich, smoky flavor) while the butt finished.

    Beans from scratch are a PITA, and straight from the can just doesn't cut it. This is a good in-between.

    I'm smoking 2 cases of pork butt this weekend. I am trying Oakridge BBQ's Competition Beef and Pork rub. I have never used this rub, but I havnt been disappointed by any of their offerings yet, so hope it goes well.

    I put these on at 7am @ 225 deg. They're right about 155-160 right now. Think I'm going to foil them in a few minutes to help speed things along.

    So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.

    I agreed to smoke pork butt for my aunt's ward Christmas party. Last year it was tri-tip for 150 peeps, and that was a pain. At least this year I can get it all done ahead of time and give it to them frozen for them to reheat at the time of the party. I still have 6 more butts to smoke for them, but I can do that next weekend. I could have fit them all in there, but I didn't want to overload the smoker. It creates quite the hot spot near the bottom of the smoker if there is too much meat on there.

    That is a beautiful sight. Where do you buy your butts?
