Butts Again? Results Of Almost Screwed Up Low & Slow

<p />Even though the 13.8 lbs of butts cooked really fast, about 11.5 hours, they turned out OK. The one pictured on the left was on the bottom. So, it didn't see the heat that the one on the right did. It was on top. The top butt pulled bery easily, fat had all melted and you just had to rake it off. The bottom butt, or the one on the left, still had "membranes" of fat left in the fiberous muscle tissue and for the most part, I could peal it out sort of like skinning the membrane off the back of ribs. You can see also that it pulled differently,,,not as much small stuff. I dusted the finished pulled pork with good old Dizzy Dust and I'll be serving this up to Ma N Law around 6:00pm.[p]Jimbo
