A butt man myself... Putting one on either late tonight or early in the morning.
The butt is on! Took a while to get my fire adjusted this morning, but we're off and running.
Don't worry about small incremental movements in temperature-if adjusting, make small changes and wait for 15-30 mins to see the effect. There should be a plateau/stall somewhere around 160*F where temp will not rise (and may go down) which is normal. After getting through that you will likely see a slow climb through the 180's ino the mid 190's. Patience is the watchword. And has been said many times-if you are lookin, you're not cookin. Enjoy the journey. Below is a great read-lots of worthwhile info-
Timing on Butts for dinner is inconvenient for me. Would rather cook one for lunch - brisket for dinner.
Cooking a butt today - choices were to stay up and put it on after midnite ( wee hours of the morning ) or get up really early. With a brisket I can put it on at bedtime. I took the get up really early option - I got sleepy before it was time to put it on. I am targeting finishing it mid afternoon - put it in the ice chest. Pull it for dinner.
