    Waterlogged Butt

    Thawing a butt in the sink and accidentally let it get soaked with water.
    Planning on trimming and salting it when thawed.
    Am I in trouble?
    I was better, but I got over it.

    I am also curious: does the no concern hold true for pork and beef? Is there a point in time where there would be a problem?

    You're in BIG trouble with the butt gods. Actually put it in the dryer for a quick spin cycle

    Hi L, I thought about that, but there was already a load spinning.

    To expand on my original question, does anyone actually let a Butt thaw in the sink (cold water method) nekkid (without any wrapping at all)?
    BTW, that Butt came out great!!

    I usually cook fully frozen or partially defrosted butts with no problems.
    Just takes the WSM an extra hour to come up to temp.

    I've done that, too. But have you ever thawed one in the sink? I want to know if I can throw one in there for mostly all day with no wrapping, and it cook alright.
