    <p />Howard,[p]After 16 hours these 2 butts finally hit 195 degrees. I know in competition that the burnt look isn't in but I think the dark bark has, by far, the best taste of the pork butt or ribs. [p]Just a question for all of you. I noticed the 3 times I have cooked butts there is a section before the bone at the bottom that is a little tougher, not as fatty or tender as the rest of the meat. Do y'all get that too or is something wrong. I was thinking that maybe the butt should be rotated 1/2 way through as that area is always at the bottom, closest to the fire.[p]Also, how do you get mutiple pics on a post? Do you put the pictures together in Paint or Illustrator first or can you sonmehow separate the addresses below? I tried with a simple comma but didn't work[p]Howard
  • Howard,[p]I wrap in tin foil the last couple hours and find the same tenderness throughout....And I do rotate a couple of times...Just my .02.[p]SL

    Looking good. That charred bark is a thing of beauty to me. Without that I think it is just reduced to a regular pork roast. Also I wrap mine in foil after I take it off and get the same consistency throughout the pull.

    I think what you are finding with the tenderness could possibly be due to uneven cooking, but I kinda doubt that is your problem. I am thinking most probably it has more to do with the different muscles in the roast. A butt has several different muscles, and they all have a slightly different texture. [p]Just some thoughts. Beers!

    We weren't able to do that until just the last week or so.
