  • Agree with stombox.  Also, I pull the butt at 170F and wrap in foil.  Before sealing the foil, I pour about a cup of apple juice on the butt then seal it up.  Makes for supoer moist BBQ.  Pull off the grill when final temp gets to 195F-200F.  Good l…

  • All: Thanks for the great advice.  Much appreciated!  BTW, I've got some peach wood chunks I'll be soaking for an hour before I drop them onto the coals.  Should I add the wood chunks before the birds are added or when they are added?  Thanks. …
