I have 19 lbs of pork butts ( 2 pieces) going in today at about 4 or 5 pm for a ling overnighter. One is 8.5 and the other is 10.5. Got them for free so I did not pick the sizes. They came boneless and netted so I took the netting off so as not to destroy the bark after the cook and I just tied a few strings around them.
Do you need to tie them at all when boneless? If not ill just cut them off prior to the cook.
Just rubbed with DP and sitting in the fridge until cook time. I ordered a Maverick but it hasnt come yet so I am just going to use my Thermapen on this, my first butt.
I am setting the egg up for 260-275 dome, indirect. over a drip pan on stilts, for some post cook goodness.
without the Maverick I guess ill have to get up a few times to check on it. Should I just trust the egg? Nervous about that. I guess if its been stabilized for a few hours before going to bed it should be fine all through the night. In theory it works but I just dont want to wreck em. That will be a game time decision I guess.
Any last minute input?
