    I am doing one right now. 350 until 160 internal, wrap, cook to 200 internal. They are always great.

    @Hi54putty - how long does the total cook usually take? Do you FTC afterwards?

    It's the same as a turbo butt on any other size as long as your butt fits.Good luck!

    Why is the temperature higher on the small vrs the large etc. I do butts on a large @ 280. Is it harder for the small to maintain lower temps? I want to do one on my small, now this has my questioning how to do it.

    I've done several butts on my small. I usually do them 250 dome and they average 10-12 hours for a 8-10 pound butt.

    I also use a woo so I'm at the felt.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    I cook butts on my Small at the same temps that I use on my larger Eggs. As long as you load up the lump high (like at least 1/2 way up the fire ring), you should be able to complete the cook at any cook temp.

    If you go the turbo route, use a drip pan with an air gap. Foil at 160 -165.
