Just trying to re-learn how to post
I cookin butts today an I Intend to post the photos of the cook if I can figure out how it works
so here is the first attempt
2 butts with mustard[p]100_0208.jpg
2 rubbed butts[p]100_0209.jpg
2 butts on v rack[p]100_0210.jpg
2 butts loaded on large bge, inverted plate setter ,drip pan with aluminum foil ,sittin on a raised grid and v rack 1 can of beer in drip pan[p]100_0211.jpg
Stabilized Starting temp for cook (180 deg) by the way so far this thermomer has been the best dome thermometer that I have found, vey accurate and durable and it cost 3.99 at a store named good time pottery[p]
now we are cookin butt, redi check ET-73 installed to monitor meat and dome temps , I wont open the lid agin for about 12 hours or when the internal temp of the butt reaches 185[p][p][p]

    You`ll never reach an internal of 185° with a cooking temp of 180°, I cook my butts in the 225°-250° range....HTH[p]Wess

    180 is my starting temp
    I will slowly ramp up to 250-275 for the longest part of the cook
    250 is much easier to maintain than any thing much below that
    But thanks for the insite
