Getting ready for first pork butt
I plan on a low/slow pork butt on Tuesday. I have a new DigiQ and I am wondering what I really need to know. I plan on using my plate setter legs up with a drip pan and then the grill. Do I need to put any fluid in the drip pan? I plan on about 250-275 temperature for about 8-9 hours. It is almost 5 pounds with a bone. I plan on wrapping it in foil when it gets to 200 internal temperature. Am I missing anything? I would like it to turn out good since the wife is not much of a meat eater and I am hoping to impress her so I can do more in the future. Thanks.
