Amazing pork butts

I did 2 pork butts 7-1/2 lbs. each on Tuesday. I for us and 1 for a good friend. He came over after work and picked his up. I had it FTC ready to go. He called that night and used the word amazing about a dozen times. Seasoned with Texas Rub Co. Grand Champion. The next day he had his son over for some more of the butt. His son is a gourmet chef and called as he was eating it. He only used the word amazing 6 times. I think I've got 2 more Egg converts. Cooked at about 325 for 7 hours.

    They look great. I like the 7 hour cook time. Is that considered a turbo butt?

    My own definition of "turbo" butts is once you get the dome up around 300*F or greater and the cook time down to an hour a pound.  FWIW.  YMMV-

    Is part of the standard "turbo" butt, HDAF around the stall? Did you do that or just cook as normal w/o the HDAF?
