Lethal Injection (Pork Butt): pics

Lethal as in oh so good.  

Awhile back @charlie_tuna had posted a response to me wherein he detailed how he does his turbo butts.  It sounded pretty good to me at the time and I just today got around to giving it a shot.  Definitely the best butt I've done so far.

The raw materials:

This was about a 7 lb butt.  I injected about half of a bottle of Lawry's teriyaki marinade.  Then I coated it with some honey and applied a good dusting of dizzy dust.  I let it rest for about an hour just before getting it on my LBGE.  Here it is just before going on:

I set up my egg at about 225 grate, 240 dome.   PS in, legs up.  I added some chunks of apple wood and hickory.  I put it on the egg at around 7:45, and it took a couple of hours to get to 160.  Once at 160, I wrapped it tight in foil and increased the temp to 300 grate.  It only took about two hours to finish off.  I pulled it off the egg at 210, and placed it in a cooler for a couple of hours before pulling the pork.  The bone slipped right out, and it was probably the easiest butt I've had to pull so far.  The stuff just fell apart - it maybe took me 2 min to pull the whole thing.  Here it is in the tray:

And on the plate, with some slaw and Baby Ray's, choice of beverage for the evening:

Wife made some green beans and grilled cherry tomatoes to go with, but they didn't make it into a photo.  

Good stuff!  Thanks again to @charlie_tuna for the tips!
