23 hours and 40 minutes later, here they are.....
I smoke em low and slow......:msn-wink:

Sorry but my camera sucks.

No I don't foil them but I foil when I pull them then hold in a cooler for several hours to finish.

The "shreadders" are called Bear Paws; you can Google Bear Paws and shop price but here they are at Amazon http://www.amazon.com/BEARPAWS-Bear-Paws/dp/B0002Y14M2

BA_LoKo you're gunna love em, they shred real quick and do a great job. What you do is hold them so the curve is in the middle of the two, or facing each curved side, and stab them in and slide one on one direction and the other in the opposite direction and get a rhythm going and you'll be done in no time.

Oh and yes the PP is very tasty. I inject but don't foil and I really do smoke them at 210* till they get to about 175 then I crank it up to 225 till they hit 200. Then I wrap and put them in a cooler for a few hours.

I start them at about 6PM and let them go all night till the next evening; it works out great. A Stumps Smoker controlled by a Stoker makes that possible. I have no worries all night and it holds within 1 degree. For smoke I load the charcoal chute with a #10 can of lump then a cup of pellets and repeat till topped off. That way I don't have to worry about loading wood chunks on a regular basis.

I'll tell you those Bear Paws are really nice for lifting a big piece of meat out of the smoker too which is what they are intended for.

The last butt came out at 23H 40Min.

Now I'm smoking them in a Stumps Smoker so I have the advantage of very low air flow, convection cooking and a very moist environment. I don't think you could get away with cooking them that long in like an offset.

Buy the way, the Stumps Smoker is much like Joby's new Superior Smoker except Joby's is designed better. If I had the money I would switch in a heartbeat.
