Looks good. In the 2nd picture is that the skin still on it or just the fat layer? It almost looks like skin.

Do you keep them in the pans the whole time?

Yes it is the skin(the best part IMO), i usually use the pans for the 1st 6hrs or so just to aid in keeping the meat moist, then i take the meat out to get that good bark on the outside. I also spray each one down with applejuice every hr or so.

Are they shoulder cuts? They don't really look like it but I have never seen skin on a butt before, only shoulders.

You don't actually keep them in the pans while smoking, do you?

My wife got me a smoker for Christmas and my dad sent me wood chips (happy coincidence) and I have been meaning to get it set up to try out. These pictures inspire me.

Looking at this really makes me want to hurry up and get a couple more drums so I can just cook up a whole case of butts.
