Bad News – My son pulled his groin muscle and can not wrestle in the tournament in Aberdeen S.D. today. The trainer said if he were to wrestle there was a good chance the muscle would rip and he would be done for the season. So his coach pulled him from the tournament and he has a few days to heal before next Thursdays match. Good News – Been so busy following wrestling I have not smoked anything since smoking buffalo prime rib for Christmas. So since my son is not wrestling today I am smoking 4 pork butts for pulled pork, 4 batches of Dutch’s Wicked Smoked Beans and a dozen cream cheese stuffed, bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers. All is being smoked with a 50/50 mix of hickory and apple. Spritzing with a 50/50 mix of apple cider and Captain Morgan Spiced Rum. It is 8º outside today and I am finally smoking again !!! Our plan with the pulled pork and Dutch’s Wicked Smoked Beans is to serve them to the wrestling team and parents when they have a potluck at N.D. State Wrestling Championships in Bismarck, N.D. the middle of February. Here are the butts with about an hour of smoke on them, will be putting the beans on in about another hour. The jalapeño poppers won’t go in till tonight. Opening the door I think they are getting more steam than smoke !!!
