I did 2 both around 8 lbs. they took about 8 hours @ 350 dome temp. Everybody love it. The beans I call Cowboy they have pulled pork,Chicken and Brisket in them. Very tasty.

    Looks good! I suppose I don't have to ask if all of the ingredients were egged for those cowboy beans. How many folks did you feed?

    Is that the normal time for a turbo butt? One hour a pound? Never done a turbo.

    How do you think it turned out vs low and slow?  Did you notice any difference?

    Yes less smoke flavor that's the only difference. They were very moist and tasty. The only thing I will change is add more smoke wood.

    Yeah, butt, is 8 hrs 'turbo'? They don't take much longer low and slow, like around 9-1/2 - 10. I'm seeing other turbos done in like 5 hrs? Anyway, good either way!
