    No drip pan?  No off-flavors from the fat hitting the platesetter? I have never cooked a butt without one, so I do not know.

    I'm impressed!
    I didn't know the mini max could cook that long on a single fill of lump.
    The mini max is a impressive cooker.

    Sweet cook.  Glad to know the max can handle a long low and slow cook.

    Great looking cook. I've yet to do a long cook on my Mini Max. You have definitely inspired me to throw a pork butt on the MM next time.

    I've never done a long cook on my Mini Max, either.  The long cooks go on my XL.

    This weekend, I'll be doing a 7 pound pork butt for Jamaican jerk pork on my Mini Max, but the recipe calls for direct with medium heat.  It says that the 6 to 7 pound butt should finish off at 190 to 195 IT in about an hour.

    Do you have a bad gasket? Or was the picture taken just as you shut the lid?

    We do them when out camping in the MM as well, always impressed.

    I thought the same thing? It might save you 4-5 hours in cooking time. Rutland Gasket.
