Nitro Butt, Chicen Wangs and Pizza

Wow what a day of cookin. It started out out with a butt that I planned on doin "turbo" but after reading about 500's cook within no foil I decided to "NITRO" and it turned out awesome. I started the 10lb butt at 9:00 am at 350 grid temp and finished at 5:30pm I maintained 350-365 grid temp thru the entire cook The bark was awesome and so was the taste I applied the hot sauce, mustard and Bad Byron's Butt Rub last light. This pic is about 6hes inimage Then I pulled it at 195 and et it rest just in foil for 1 hr before pulling . image We also did wings using the recipe that @Anex did with Franks Hot Sauce image And then finished off the evening with pizza. First was just your ordinary got all the toppings pizzaimageimage Then a Hawaiian pizza imageimage Then the Pulled Pork Pizza image

    Awesome cook! Never heard of Nitro butts, though...before long, you people will avoid all the fun, throw them in the microwave and claim it's the new best way to cook pork. X_X

    Nicely done Mattman! It's a Revolution, @Mayberry! I love low and slow, and the whole pomp and circumstance that surrounds it. But I like sleep too.

    I'm thinking now maybe somebody at the fair will throw a butt into the fryer and get 'er done in an hour or two!

    @Mayberry I enjoy low & slow too This was an experiment for myself because I wanted to see the difference in the 2 drastically different approaches. The Nitro butt was juicy but not as juicy as low & slow, the bark came out good but I had minimal smoke flavor but that didn't slow anybody down when it came to shoving it in their pieholes

    Lol...I know. I've tried some turbo myself. It's always good, but never quite as good. The good thing is that if I start early enough in the night, the Egg is stabilized and I rarely have to get up more than once a night. The Maverick has been a lifesaver with the alarm on low and slows.
