...about these guys? Just put on a small butt to cook via the quick method, and noticed these emerging from a potted fern on the patio. Something about their shape just makes me happy. :whistle: Good crop of chilis, too.

Good Sunday, All.

    What is the fast method for butts?
  • BacchusBacchus Posts: 6,019
    Alot of folks are going 350-375deg in order to speed up the process. Little if any difference is detectable most times, expecially if you cook at 250 for the first 60-90min with wood chunks then bump it up.

    Pls excuse the hijack LR. The shrooms look cool. The one close up shot looks like you cool pull up a chair and enjoy the shade.

    A couple of hours indirect at 200-250 with very heavy smoke (I used apple and pecan today). Then double wrap in hd foil and back on indirect, but at 300-350 or higher. I can't tell the difference, but it sure cuts several hours off the process.

    I know it's blasphemy, but a couple of weeks ago I ran out of time doing one for work. After about 5 total hours of smoke/wrap time, I dumped everything in the crock pot and went to bed. Folks at work went nuts.

    No apologies necessary. I just told Baja basically the same thing.

    Sure do love the shape of them babys. I see finger prints all over that one. :laugh:

    Have a great Sunday. Tim

    This one is an 8# boston butt 400° start to finish, indirect about 6.5 hours.

    I used a foil tent at towards the end of the cook to prevent the bark from overdeveloping. As to if or when to tent is a judgment call.

    For what its worth I googled edible mushrooms and clicked "images" and found nothing that looked similar. Then I googled poisonous mushrooms and immediately found one that looked like these and the description fits your habitat.
    When in doubt--don't.

    Thanks, Steve. I wouldn't eat, but think I'll remove them.

    Interesting peppers. What kind are they?
  • RRPRRP Posts: 21,812
    I've always been told that when you don't know the specie the more pure white were always the most probable to be poisonous.
