For the most part I run my drums between 220 and 250 unless I am doing up chicken. I prefere closer to the 220 side but I don't freak out till its over 250. If I'm gonna.pull the pork I take the but to right close to 200 degrees then pull it and rest it wrapped up in a hot box. Once its down to 160/170 I pull it and serve.

Good to hear from ya Peter! I do the same as Tom. The resting period makes a HUGE amount of difference. I try to run the temps around 225*F.

Thanks Guys. I went and picked up two 7# butts today. Also got a great deal on a vacuum sealer. Looking forward to trying out some new stuff with that. Getting ready for Easter dinner. Pics to come by the end of the weekend.

the vac sealers are awesome man. I love mine, with the exception that it can be a pain with the juices. When I package the PP, I have to put it in zip loc bags and let it sit in the frig to firm the juicy part. Then I cut the zipper off and seal it in the vac bags.

I just packed ribs and they did sealed up really nice but they had been in the cooler overnight.

If the juices are a problem and you can't wait to firm them up, fold up a piece of paper towel and stick it in the top of the bag right below where you are going to seal it. It will keep the liquid from making it to the top when you suck the air out. Just use a small amount of paper towel though. Don't want it to suck up too much juice. I've had good luck doing this.
