I haven't smoked a butt in quite a few years but will be doing 2 this weekend.
Still haven't decided on whether I will inject or not either.
Likely going to just lather in mustard and coat with rub. Start at 8am and hope it is done by 6pm, although of course temp will determine that...I just have people showing up at 6pm ready to eat!
I start with fat side down, depending on the weight flip it in an hour. Theory you get rid of the greasy fat but enuff fat to keep it juicy.
