First overnight butt experience

edited 11:26AM in EggHead Forum
I followed Gfw's procesure on his web site and last night at 9:30 I put on a 6.25 lb boston butt. Temp stable at 225* with fire bricks and drip pan.[p]This morning at 6:30, I checked the Egg. Dome temp had fallen to 160*, internal temp 151*. I re-lumped and now temp is stable agein at 275*. Hope all will be ready by lunch![p]I am just a little surprized how easy it has all been![p]Smokey

    Smokey,
    Sounds like you be doin good! Might take a while, depending on how much of the 160-170 plateau you already achieved. The temp in your butt could have fallen at 160 dome. Maybe you already got thru part of the plateau. You will probably be having the best lunch ever pretty soon. Yeeeee Ha!!

    Nature Boy,[p]Its now 10:30 and dome temp is about 280, meat temp 173. The smell is ... well, fantastic! Friends come over at 12:30 and everything is on schedule (Lexington style bbq slaw and all)! [p]I'm really looking forward to your 2 stage brisket at E2K! I have yet to do one, but I have a 5 punder in the freezer just waiting! Thanks for the support!

    Smokey,[p]I have always said, the hardest part of pulled pork is keeping the fire going. Good eating ahead.[p]Tim

    Smokey,[p]The temp rises really slow so you might want to bump it up to 300 deg if your in any kind of rush. Its good to let it sit atleast 1 hr before pukking - if only because its hot.[p]Enjoy.[p]Tim

    Smokey, sounds great - should be a fantastic lunch - leftovers if any can be reheated by placing in plastc bag and microwaving for about 5 minutes at 30% power - or you could just send them to me!

    Tim M,[p]11:15, dome temp 305* (or so), internal meat temp 186* and I haven't peeked sice re-lumping! Looks like smooth sailing!

    Tim M,
    "1 hour before pukking" just might be what Dr. C was referring too!

    Dr. Chicken,
    Well, better to puke before you eat the butt....make more room that way.

    Nature Boy,
    Especially if its still hot! :^)

    Nature Boy,[p]Oh great - I just got a couple e-mails and finally reread my post -- I though Chicken meant to reread Smokeys post. I gotta reread my posts before I send them. Sure wish we had one of those new fangled "preview" buttons here.[p]Sorry - I meant Pukking to be Pulling. Someone moved my L and K keys around -- or my dyslexia has moved to my hands.[p]M miT[p]
