Smoke it for 4-5 hours. Then wrap it in foil with some apple juice and put it into the oven at 325 until it hits temp. Then wrap in a towel around the foil and let it steam in a cooler for an hour. Can't get more smoke into it after 4-5 hours so save yourself the time. 11# will take about 15-16 hours on a smoker at 225.

I was going to go ice fishing, but the windchill is around -30. Dabs and video games sound way better.

Nice looking butt. By next weekend we will be warm enough to smoke and I can't wait.

I was always told it’s 6-8 hours of smoke

It's a temperature thing, not a time thing. I believe most meat stops taking in the smoke flavor around 140 degrees.

wow, I’ve been an amateur competition BBQer for years and never heard that. Makes cents though, never really thought about it being temp over time.
