hey guys I am doing two 8 pound butts for my mother-in-laws birthday tomorrow.....gonna have a pretty big crowd. we're hoping to eat by 1pm.
i have done alot of reading on the turbo butt method and have seen many different opinions but from what I gather it's my understanding that if i cook these butts somewhere between 300-350 that I should on average be able to cook them to appropriate temps in about 45 minutes per pound at those temps? does that sound about right? so that would mean I am looking at about an hour cook plus rest time....so 9-10 hours total?????
i have also seen many different opinions on whether to foil or not......but if i choose to foil then I need to do so after probably 2-4 hours depending on when the butts hit 165 IT.....sound about right???
in offering your opinions on this keep in my mind that my goal is to have the best bark possible while maintain good moisture and tenderness. yeh i know, i want it all....lol...but i guess what I am saying is that i want to make sure i take the right steps to make sure I have some excellent bark first and foremost.
thanks in advance for your help. I have some errands to run and I will be back in a few hours!
