butt problem

What is the very best way to cook a Butt so as to ensure it'll fall off the bone and melt in your mouth?


  • ribman,
    i've only done it twice, but try yellow mustard & dizzy pig dizzy dust, indirect at 230 grid for 2 hours a pound till 200 internal. these small butts took 9:30. no problem, mon.[p]27jan07-007.jpg[p]27jan07_2-002.jpg[p]27jan07_2-006.jpg[p]

  • ribman,
    Go to home page of BGE and click on recipe section, then go to Elder Ward Pulled Pork read it and follow instruction on cook, fire building, and sides. It is great.
    Good Luck

    cook it long enough....
    and slow enough.
    250 or so, figure 2 hours a pound. take it off the grid anywhere as low as 185 (make sure the bone pulls out eas) or to 205. figure 190-195 target though

    Dang Rick, that piece of bark is still there in the back. I just about had it out of my mind. My goal is for my next one to turn out that good. Have a nice evening, AZ
