Looking for some inspiration for long cooks (>4 hours). I've done the norms - brisket, ribs, pork butt.

Thanks!

    Beans, Stews, Chili in the C.I.D.O

    Pit Beef, but that may be less than 4 hrs.

    Pork Butts are the longest i have ever done about 6 hrs. Ribs take about 2.5 hrs.

    Are you being serious?

    General consensus is that ribs take 5-6 hours and butts are normally in the 12-18+ hour range.

    Look at something like Clay Q's pulled beef. I use a chuck roast, although I use the the 70lb+ whole chuck and cover it with bacon. It's a good 10-14 hour cook. Then I chop it up in sauce. Excellent!

    Some may think "salt, for real"? I had a friend send me some habanero smoked salt, and I wish that I could duplicate it. Salt that you don't even need food for...

    Cheers,

    Well I enjoy hickory smoked pulled beef BBQ using chuck roasts for all day egging. :woohoo:
  • CBBQCBBQ Posts: 610
    LOL. I cut it into roasts. I end up with about 12 of them. The price is much cheaper if I buy them from the suppliers that way.
  • I haven’t done anything real big or real long yet, but I’ve got two 9lb. butts on the slate for mid June :woohoo: !!
    So far the longest cooks I’ve done are in the four to eight hour range:
    Smoked turkeys
    Chuck roasts
    Country style ribs
    Ham
    Ranch Beans
    Gumbo
