Turbo

0oHUNTo00oHUNTo0 Posts: 34
So I'm thinking about doing my first turbo butt tomorrow. How do I do this? 350 dome till pork is 160 then foil? Looking for tips and a general gameplan.

Also, anyone make their own bbq sauce? Recipes?

Thanks!

    I do 350 till done, no foil. Foiling will speed you through the stall. Use whatever rub you prefer.

    I used to foil when I turbo, but no longer as the foil makes the bark mushy if there even is any bark at all! 350 indirect all the way to 200 works for me. No peek, no spritz, no nothin---if you're lookin you're not cookin

    +3 on 350 till 200 IT. No foil, no peek. You'll have great bark and plenty juicy. Lots of successes posted here.

    For sauce, I have been using a vinegar based sauce I found here on the forum.

    2 Cups apple cider vinegar

    2 TBS Molasses

    1 TBS Dry Mustard

    1/2 C Butter

    1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper

    1 TBS Worcestershire Sauce

    1/2 C Brown Sugar

    1/2 tsp Black Pepper

    Stir all ingredients into a saucepan over medium heat.   Cook,stirring until  sugar is dissolved.

    Don't boil.


    Don't bother tasting it alone, you won't like it, but it is great in pulled pork.  Sauce the whole thing after you have pulled it.  Use your judgement as to how much.

  • My first attempt at a butt was a turbo butt. Did not foil at all and cooked at about 350 to an internal temp of 200. It turned out great I thought. Rubbed with mustard and bad Byron's butt rub and the bark was excellent.

  • About how long would you give yourself to be confident you can hit 200IT when doing turbo at 350? I know it can vary significantly but best guess.

    I love the way everyone says "turned out great I thought". Hell yes it was great but you somehow feel you cheated and downplay a little. It was great period!!!!

  • Did 2 8# butts turbo, took about 5 1/2 hrs butt I wrapped at 160*. That eggcelerates the stall. Will not wrap my next butt and I estimate 7 hrs maybe a little more to get to 200* int. As mentioned above wrapping makes the meat mushy.

    So would you guys say this is just as good as an all-nighter butt???

    I'm cooking up a butt tomorrow for a family holiday party, so on trying to decide. Never done a turbo before.

    I think they are just as good. Ftc is important for turbo butt. I'm converted to turbo for ribs as well.

  • I turbo'd two 7# butts last Sunday. Cooked indirect at a dome temp of 325 with the PS legs up and a dry drip pan underneath. One took about 6 hours and I pulled it at 195 IT then FTC for another 3 hours and I pulled the second one at 195 IT which took another 1.5 hours then FTC for about 1.5 hours. No foil, BB butt rub, nice bark on both and fall apart tender........
