    Finally the weekend is here, and although it is going to rain all day, I will have no problem firing up the GOSM and knocking out some good food.

    Took a 3.5 # boneless pork loin & made a wet rub out of brown sugar, sage, black pepper, cayenne pepper, creole seasoning, cinnamon, and cherry peppers. All run through the food processor to make a paste. Rubbed the loin last night, wrapped in plastic, and tossed in the fridge

    plannig to eat a little of the pork loin tonight, and slice the rest tomorrow for some sandwiches for the NFL games.

    When I was @ Caputo's on thursday picking up supplies, I got these BB ribs, $3.99/LB, a little more than I usually spend on BB's,but I really wanted some for today. The other option was spares for $1.49/lb, but I did those last time, and I typically alternate. These BB's are small, ab little over 2#, and minimally processed. I am curious to see how these turn out taste wise.

    Ill be rubbing these with my own rub right before smoking.

    Also have some jalapenos, summer sausage, colby jack, and bacon for some ABT's., and a few cans of beans, some summer sausage, bacon, green pepper, onion, and brown sugar for the beans.

    Should be done in time for the O.U. vs Miami game tonight.

    More pics to follow as the prep and cooking progresses, first off to Home epot for some winter fertilizer, and other stuff before the smoking fun begins.

    thanks for looking

    That's one hell of a wet rub. Can't wait for your verdict, especially with the cherry peppers...nice.

    loin and sausage have been on about an hour and a half, I patted the lojn dry, and added more of the wet rub I had reserved. I am also looking forward to the results, that pork is destined for some pork sandwichews with provolone, and broccoli rabe tomorrow(of course after a sampling tonight).

    Steady rain falling, just glad the GOSM fits under the table umbrella, I did pick up a 10- x 10 canopy @ Home depot for $40, so that will come in handy at some point in the future.

    ABT's and beans are prepped,

    Ribs are rubbed, and membrane pulled, just waiting for 3:00 p.m.

    Heres the finished pics.

    Did the ABT's different this time, Sliced from the tip back to the top, and placed a piece of sausage, and a chunk of cheese in before wrapping with bacon. really liked them this way, couldnt get all the seeds and membrabe out, so they were nice and hot, I ate 4 of the 7 I made:

    The beans I did were basic canned campbells beans, I sauteed some of the leftover bacon from the ABT's, and then sauteed the green peppers, garlic, and onion in the bacon fat. I poured that mixture into the beans with some of my rub, yellow mustard, and some sausage I tossed on the smoker:

    Ribs were rubbed with my rub, very low on salt, sweet, but spicy as well. Pork Loin was rubbed Friday night with the wet rub described above, Some of the best ribs I have done to date, and the loin was great as well, had a caribbean jerk type taste going on.

    The ribs I pulled when they passed the bend test, then I foiled them with a little honey, and apple juice, and tossed back on the smoker tented for 10 minutes. I put a little glaze of sauce on the ribs while they were resting as well.

    Pork loin will be perfect for some smoked pork hoagies with broccoli rabe, provolone, and some herb mayo.

    thanks for looking, I was really happy with the results.
