Smoking question

linguafood | Sep 20, 201312:28 PM

So I plan on smoking my first pork butt tomorrow. It's about 7.5 lbs., so it'll likely take between 10.5 - 12.5 hours to finish. I've made this many times in the oven (obviously not smoked, just low and slow cooked), but this will be the first time I make it in my spiffy new Bradley smoker....

What I find confusing in my smoking book is that it says in the intro to only smoke the meat for half of the cooking time, then just finish in the smoker without smoke (?), but in the actual recipe for pork butt, it says to "smoke cook" for the entire time. Wha'?

If someone could clarify this for me, that would be great.
