well I stopped at Harmons at bangerter I-15 today after hitting the houch stockup store and the manager wasn't there so the guy wanted to charge me the full 1.99 for the small 5 # butts.. I told him to hold the 2 in the cryo pac for me but went to smiths and they had picnics and bostons.. took 2bostons near or over 8#'s home.

Yes the elkster is still out here in lala land... I know I have missed two nice smokes but I have been busy.. Darn I missed going up to the bird but just couldn't swing it.. these darn archery competitions.. I dont even have time to look and see who won the wild west and bird?

I will be smoking a butt or 2 this weekend on the WSM's.. whats you cooking?

Enjoy the 4th folks.

As far as butts go in a WSM I usually get them on by 11 pm to serve the next day at 6pm.. is tat ridiculous or not?
I am afraid to wait to start at 4 am as I hate to sweat the 165 degree lag time and rather put the 205 butts in foil in a cooler and take a shower at 4pm and sit with a cold one and relax for awhile..

by the way T your pig last friday looks to die for.. that would be my last meal request if I was in charge of the justice system and was madoff with the death sentence that him and his kind should be getting!!.
That's in the ballpark of how long it takes me to cook 2 butts in my WSM.

I plan on about 16 hours at 225*, and then do the same as you & wrap in foil and put in a cooler for a few hours before dinner.

I got a 14 lb two pack of bone-in butts at Sam's Club today for $1.28/lb that I will be putting on Friday night for a 4th of July dinner.
