Smoked pork butt!

Still no Butt pics?
Where ya at NeedsWork?
I knew I was forgetting something last night!
I slept through my alarm Sunday morning - so the butt didn't go on until 8am. I cooked it hotter than usual at ~275F. Being my first cook on the $30 stick burner, there was more temp fluctuation than I would have liked. I used random hardwood firewood for most of the cook.
My independent food critic (my wife) said it was my best butt to date.
We served it picnic style with jalapeño cheddar andouille cornbread, chipotle mac & cheese, and micheladas.

Finished product. I can tell that I rushed it by pushing the temps. The brazing liquid reduced into a great sauce!
Almost no heat. Very mild flavor, pork forward, rub middle, and smoke finish.
