43 lbs of butt... lid closed

<p />I don't think I could've squeezed many more ounces on the large. I had to modify my indirect setup slightly to get enough room for the top two butts (8.8 lbs and 9.2 lbs)
So far so good with the Kroger lump... it lit well and has a pleasant aroma, kind of sweet. The rest of the bag only had a few pieces bigger than those shown in the earlier pic... all in all, the pieces were medium to small for the majority.


  • wrobs,[p]If anyone accuses you of having "big butt," I'll have to agree![p]Felices Navidades![p]Keep posting pics --[p]~ Broc[p]
  • wrobs, It doesn't look like anyone will be hungry tomorrow, Have a Merry Christmas, Brett

    Hey Broc, since 3 of them are for neighbors, I guess you could say I have my neighbors butt. LOL
    They are rocking along 3 hours in...egg is steady at 240 and (my neighbors) butt is at 105. Does that make him a "hot a$$"???
    I expect to be busy between noon and 3pm tomorrow...

  • wrobs,[p]Hmmm... 98.6 -- 105! [p]Zheesh! He'll have brain damage at that rate![p]~ B

    wrobs, Nice! Done with one load of lump?? Guess I might welcome a piece of coal as a Christmas gift this year! My, how things change... 8 - )[p]Rasca

  • wrobs,[p] you rotate the meat as I would think the ends that go past the plater setter would get too much heat and dry out. I was never able to do more than 2 butts. Just curious how yours turned out?[p]Howard
