    Here is part two of today's smoke. The other half of todays smoke is a chuck.

    10 lb butt, rubbedwith my own recipe and will be spritzed with a 3 : 1 mix of apple juice and amaretto.

    Ok, three hours in



    The butt is for a lunch we are doing at work on Tuesday so no rush.

    Also made me a little snack. Italian sausage wrapped around a mozzarella and chedar string cheese stick


    Only have the one therm so i'm monitoring the chuck first. That's stalled out at 145 for the last 45 min.

    The onions are on so i can make another batch of smoked vidalia bbq sauce !!! Just about got it right. If this one comes out how i'm looking for will post it in the sauce sect.

    One split and leaked cheese so ate that one on it's own. The other went into a bun with some onion bbq sauce.

    I was ready for 14 hour or more of cooking. When it hit 165 i removed the probe and tried in several different spots to make sure it wasn't a fluke. Nope got the same reading or higher in 3 different places. Done the same when it hit 200. Always reading that no chunk of meat is the same. Guess i must of got lucky [​IMG].

    The chuck was stuck at 145 for an hour.

    Can gaurantee the next one will stall out for hours !![​IMG]

    This butt is for a lunch at work tomorrow so will be warming in crockpot with some finishing sauce.

    You could call the snacks personal sized fatties. Can't remember who it was but someone on here called them beef hotdogs. Hamburger rolled up into a hotdog then thrown on the smoker. I though hmmm cheese in the middle so bought some string cheesesticks and wrapped them up. They were a little larger than a bratwurst. Good size to snack on and only took about 90 minutes.
