Major Boston Butt Problem
Put my pork on last night about 9:30 on 250. It's a 6 lb butt that I wanted to smoke up for today. Checked temp throughout the night. Looked steady 250 all night. Last check was at 4:30am. Woke up at 7:00 and it was down to about 150. Fire was nearly gone and I hadn't opened the egg or anything all night.
Problem #1: Do I need more charcoal next time? I thought I filled it up good.
Anyways I checked the pork temp and it was 190 so I figured that was good. Pulled it covered in foil and let it rest. Here is the next problem.
Problem #2: As I was pulling the pork, I could not stop eating it. That 6 pound pork only yielded about a pound of meat after I was done with it. How do you guys keep from eating all that delicious meat when you are pulling it?
Problem #3: Now what I am going to cook for mom tonight?
