Are you looking at my butt?
<p />This little piggy took it's sweet time. It took 27.5 hours before the internal would get to 200. I started this cook yesterday at 3pm. Took it off this evening at 6:30pm. The coals cooled to 125 this morning, but the butt maintained. I kept kicking it up a notch until the dome got to 350. This was a 9 pounder and I guess it just takes time to get it hot all the way into the middle. Well this picture ain't deceiving. This may have been my best butt yet. That's a salad with everything except the kitchen sink, spinach, whole wheat mini-biscuits, and a mighty nice pig. And yes,,,,, I ate the whole plate full. burrrrp!
