    Nice work. I like to rotate them sometimes to get even coloring on each one. Cooked a 16lb butt today as a test run for next week.

        Yup that is a load.. it will be interesting to see how much longer this takes than six butts did last time .. it will be a good experiment as long as they are done for the noon grad party!!

        Ok, you convinced me, tomorrow up early and off to the store looking for pork butt.
        Don't think I'll be needing a buck forty of it though....

          Pulled pork may be the most versatile meat on the planet. We just did pulled pork won-tons, they were great !!!

            I remembered you made this comment but could not find a thread on it.. I have some left over pulled pork and was wondering if you would share a recipe??

            It’s actually my Asian wife’s recipe. She makes them with ground pork but I grabbed some pulled out of the freezer and told her to try that. I’ll probably get her to do them again and post. Tedious work !!

            Looks great! I just cooked 60 lbs. Was a learning experience for sure. My biggest cook yet. I had probes in two of the Butts on different shelves. Temp difference was about 15 degrees. I probed all of the Butts and found out I must have a cold spot or that Butt was not fully thawed because I had to leave it in for another 30 minutes.

              Getting a little nervous now. Smoker won't get above 220. I might have to come up with plan B soon. IT of 164. But it does smell amazing!! Click image for larger version

                Thats a load. I overwhelmed myself with a 80 pound cook but sure was satisfying when done.
                Are you using your electric oven?

                holehogg I have a home built electric smoker that was way to small for what I was trying to do.. I had to pull seven butts out and put in the oven to get back on track . My smoker couldn't build enough heat that loaded up.. oh well all the butts are done and delivered .. turned out great now I just have to add a little horsepower to that smoker!!

                I also struggled with my vertical gasser that has a 2 ring burner. It took a long time to get back up to temp after loading. Well either way you got them done and given your talents I'm sure they turned out good.

              Quit opening the door to take pictures! Let 'em ride, and with pork butt, you can (if your smoker will let you) crank that temp up! It won't hurt them.

                The temp is set at 270 . I think i may have overloaded the smoker. Temp is slowly climbing now. I had to see what they looked like it has been almost 12 hours since I put them in 😄😄

                Sounds like you had a lot of moisture that kept the ambient temps down. Just a guess.

              That's what I was thinking... Evaporative cooling on another level. Very little airflow.

                This is great, I had to show my wife. I (and my PBC) felt overwhelmed with my measly 3 butts this past weekend. You had nearly as much cole slaw to serve as I had butt! 😂
