    Those would still be winter butts here. Calling for snow Saturday and next week. :evil: Golf league starts a week from Monday. :blush:
    Looks like you are off to a good start.
    Let us know if there is much different taste in the rubs with the finished product.

    Mr. Eggtucky you and I had the same idea!!! I've been out of pulled pork for some time and have been craving it (I've been trying to eat healthier and, well, I don't think pulled pork fits the bill). Anyway, I put four, yes four butts on the large around 7:00 pm this evening. I have the digi II hooked up with a grate temp of 235! Can't wait till tomorrow; hopefully, I'll remember to take pics.

    hehe..will try to..but what i usually end up doing is pullin em both at the same time and they somehow end up in the same pot! :blink: :sick:

    How is that Pecan Rub, I have always wanted to try it, my buddy is doing his first butt tonight & he has a giant jar of it, & a few others, I urged him to try the pecan, heard a lot of good things about it

    tell him to try it!..only thing does have a lot of sugar in'll notice that after putting it on the butt..the sugar will draw some moisture out of the meat and get all gooey...but cant go wrong with it! I use it when I'm doin 2 butts..I do one pecan and one byron's..then I usually end up mixin the meats after i pull them..the sweet in the JH really offsets the less sweet flavor of the Byron's nicely...
