Thanks everyone! Obviously, I left out a few details in my frustration of posting the pictures!

So, The fat caps of both butts were removed and a rub was liberally applied 24 hours in advance consisting of Onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, paprika, ground celery seed, ground allspice, chili powder, ground bay leaf, dry mustard, salt, and a homemade creole/cajun seasoning.

They were cooked at 210*-235* to an internal temperature of 190* in the thickest part. During cooking they were basted with a basting sauce consisting of Defatted chicken stock, vinegar, water, lee & Perrins, 4 cloves of garlic, thyme, cumin, 1 medium onion, 1 rib of celery, 2 bay leaves, green onion, bell pepper, and 4 or 5 tablespoons of the rub , some salt, and black pepper all brought to a good simmer for 20-30 minutes.

Fuel was approx. 20-25 lbs lump and 5 lbs briquettes charcoal.
Flavoring wood, was 1 egg size chunk of hickory, and 1 egg size chunk of cherry. Total cook time approx. 14 hours!


Enjoy!!

A Hotel & Restaurant Supply! They are oven thermometers. When I "Q" I don't go by the clock, but rather temperature. At least two inside, 1 on the cooker, and also a probe type.
