thanks again to everyone - - - got a late start this morning but, after a liberal dusting of Suckle Busters Texas Pecan Rub, she went on the Pit Boss at 8:30am - - think I'll let it bathe in the Smoke Setting for at least an hour maybe even more and then up it to either side of 250 until it starts telling me things :salut:

when the butt is in the smoke i usually have a water pan in the smoker with it
when it gets to 160° i pull it and put it in my roaster, in a pan with a wire rack and finish in the oven
the roaster holds in the moisture and the wire rack keeps it from getting a wet butt ;)
i usually take it out at 200°
when it's finished i run all the drippings through a fat separator and then pour it back over the shredded butt

i finish briskets the same way

Fat separator?? Do tell.... I have to pour mine in a pyrex measuring cup and throw it in the freezer a while and then break off the fat wafer and reheat.

you pour the drippings in. let it sit for a bit. the fat rises to the top. it pours the drippings from the bottom
