This weekend I made my first attempt at smoking a butt on my new LBGE. The result was very good and the neighbors enjoyed the meal.
I coated the butt in yellow mustard and then rubbed it with Dizzy Pig Dizzy Dust at around 11:30PM the night before. The smoke came from 6 large chunks of hickory. Sprayed with apple juice once an hour starting at the 7 hour mark.
Total cook time at 225 was right at 13 hours (Bumped to 350 the last hour). The stall lasted roughly 4 hours and it was a painful experience considering I needed the butt done for a group of 8 adults and 5 kids at a decent hour.
Butt Size: 7 1/2 Pounds
Start Time: 7:40AM
Finish Time: 8:30PM
The lesson learned from my first smoked butt....BE PREPARED FOR THE STALL!
