I have two boneless butts going on to the egg shortly. Haven't ever tried boneless, hope the flavour will be fine with out the bone. They are 3 lbs each. Thinking about 6-7 hours @ 270 indirect.Used a rub recipe that turned out good for me last time. Applied regular mustard to the first butt and then the rub. Tried to apply a thick amount of rub. Used about half of the rub. Wanted to try to do something a bit sweeter, so after a few ideas for some folks, I opted to add more brown sugar to the rest of the rub. It did taste quite a bit sweeter. Also on the second butt I used House of Q slather before the upgraded rub. Should I use some mesquite for pork, I hear it is better on beef. My wife isn't a huge fan of smoke, I was thinking of about 2-3  smaller chunks. It will be a later dinner, but that is ok, Survivor starts tonight (go ahead flame me lol) so we may eat in front of the TV. Will post finished pic later.

    +1, For pork, I like the fruit woods, apple is my favourite, probably because it is easy to source, meaning it is free. Pear, cherry and plum are also good. I save mesquite for beef and sometimes the odd tex/mex chicken.  
    Delta B.C. - Move over coffee, this is job for alcohol!
  • If your wife doesn't like smoke for get the mesquite.
  • To late, it is on and it is smouldering away, we will see what happens, IT 117. I guess if it is to smokey, I will be eating alot by myself. :))
