My wife obviously has fallen in love with food off of the EGG. She decided today to enter me into her works BBQ contest. Has to be a homemade BBQ sauce. I do have that in check. The are providing me with a boston butt. I have never smoked a boston butt. So I have absolutely no idea on preperation or cook time on the butt. The contest is based only on taste alone. All ingredients must be homemade including rub..So any ideas on what kind of smoking chips to use and what temp to cook at?! I am not quite sure of the weight or quality of the meat as I have not seen it yet...Thanks for all your help!

    I got the just of it. What should internal temp be?!
  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    For pulled pork, between 195 and 200 internal...the closer to 200 the better and you can keep it wrapped in foil for several hours if you need prepared for the plateau...when the internal gets around 140 to 160 it will stall..may even drop..this is perfectly normal, don't adjust anything, just wait it out...make sure your egg is stabalized with drip pan and all other items before adding your meat.

    What about cook temperature. I'm confused on what you mean with wrapping in aluminum foil? Also, any ideas on what kind of wood chunks to smoke with and what temperature to cook at?! sorry I am just full of questions!
