I've been following the turbo butt threads and I'd like to try something in between a 350* turbo with foil and a long low and slow. I'd like to do it without foil, if I can; no real reason other than I'm just not a fan of using it.
I'm doing a pork butt for Pres Day and would like to be able to do a 7lb - 8lb butt in 8 hours. Would any of the following strategies work and produce a quality butt:
1) 300* for 8 hrs
2) 350* for 2 hrs, then 275* for 6 hrs
3) 275* for 6 hrs then 325* (or 350*) for 2 hrs
4) You tell me what works. :)
I'll admit defeat and use foil if I have too, but some of you have to know a good strategy.
