Just got my first butt going, It's a little one(4lbs)
Here's what I'm doing, did
BB Butt Rub
Mustard
BB Butt Rub
PS legs dwn, Drip pan(little water) Grate
Cyber Q set to
260 dome
200 IT
Lit center of lump Stabilized at ±260
Put in 8 or 10 medium pieces of hickory(do you think I will need to add more? How long should I see smoke? Or how long should I smoke?)
I put one large piece on the lit center and the rest around the outside.
Does this sound like it should work?

    Sounds good to me. I started mine last night at midnight and used three chunks of hickory. 

    Sounds like you will be having a tasty meal later on!

  • My first one today, too. Mustard, rub, injected and wrapped last night. Fired with the looftlighter at 415, On at 5:15 am. Leaving the wood chips out this time, just BGE lump. Planning on 250 until 165 internal, then foil until done. Hoping for an hour rest before I slice and shred.

    No. I let my license expire in the '60s.  Got tired of talking to Zed L's and Barry Goldwater.

    The main reason i start out as low as my egg will go, it to expose the butt to a maximum of smoke.  I get at least two hours of good smoke and feel the meat is pretty much sealed up at this point.  I am a turbo butt cooker, so it isn't long after the "smoke portion" of the cook before i reach the magical 160 internal number where the butt ges wrapped.  Then the temperatures can be increased without sacrificing liquid flavor.
