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.

The butt went on at 5am.  After the four hour mark, I decided to try a brazing liquid like Mike's: http://thehotpepper....-smoker/page-13

Brined for 24.  Rubbed and ready to go on at 4-5 am.  I'll give it another dusting as it goes on.
