Just had to try a butt on the mini. This pic is of a 6.76lbs Boston Butt going direct and targeting 250 degrees dome. I have the Et-73 all set up and reporting.
I filled up the fire box with lump and let it burn for a bit and added cherry and oak chunks for smoke. The butt was slathered in Dijon mustard w/kosher salt and course ground pepper. I'm using an old Miracle Maide pie pan as a drip pan so I guess you could say I'm using a modified indirect cook.
I wanted to do an indirect cook using the mini KIM woo and baking stone but the butt was to big (it was the smallest Blooms had at the time and I wasn't about to pass up 99 cents/lb.). Next time I'll shop in advance for something around 4 lbs - that would be a great size for the wife and me.
