    Last time I did a big butt, I started too late in the morning and was up until 2 or 3 am to pull it when it was FINALLY done!!

    That's when you wrap it up and put it in the oven!

    I usually smoke 2 pork button at a time, overnight.

    The butts go on 9pm. I watch it for an hour or so. Then, off to bed I go. 12-15 hrs later, goodness.

    Never had an issue with any visiting critters.

    I love the smell of BBQ in the morning.

    Did a 10 pounder today. Started at 9 am ready to eat at 6 after an hour of resting. Wrapped it at 165 to get through the stall.

    I find myself unable to sleep when I have meat in the smoker overnight. I tried, but just unable to ignore it. So for pork butt I start early in the morning and eat later. It’s better the next day anyway.

    Yum. That butt looks ready to fall apart all on its own.

    Beautiful, my mouth is watering...…I usually smoke smaller butts (4-6lbs) and my smokes last about 5-7hrs depending on size.

    Last 8-10 pound butt I cooked I put on about 8 pm, had an employee call in sick overnight so I had to go in, forgot about my grill but when I came home at 6 pm the butt was fall off the bone perfect with a nice bark and great moisture!
