Flavor wise, great. We had trouble maintaining the temp in our smoker, and wound up finishing in the oven, the charcoal pan is too far away from the meat maybe, it did "pull" ok. If I don't want to mess with the smoker again, thereby foregoing the crust part, I'm thinking maybe 12 hours in the oven at 225, in a pan, tightly covered in foil. Would you recommend that, or have a better idea? I have made pork butt starting in the oven at midnight, at 225, and moved to crockpot in the morning so as not to heat up the house. Was delicious, but swimming in liquid.
