I wanted to thank this forum for the wealth of information I found on cooking a pork butt. I smoked my first one yesterday and it was excellent.
Rubbed a 5-3/4 pound butt with a coat of yellow mustard and Bad Byron's Butt Rub and let set in fridge approximately 36 hours. Before putting in smoker I injected with a Chris Lilly recipe I found on this sight, put in my 008 at 5:45 am Sunday morning at 225 with about 4 ounces of pecan. At 11:00 am adjusted to 250 and by 5:30 pm it had hit an internal temperature of 195. Finally pulled out of smoker when internal was 198 and had trouble because it was falling apart. Never once opened the door till done.
