Well, Friday night, I put my butt (boston butt) in the smoker for 6 hrs, then I had to get some sleep! Got up at 6 am Saturday and put the butt in the crock pot with some Stubb's pork marinade and let it go until 2 pm when we ate! It turned out GREAT! I was worried about cooking, cooling, then cooking again, but had no problems at all. Plenty of smokiness and it was perfectly done. I used the marinade and rendered pork fat as the "finishing sauce". Everyone was happy with it. I also smoked 4 racks of spare ribs from 6 am till about 3. They turned out very tasty, but the spare ribs don't get as tender as baby backs. I was looking for quantity though as I expected around 20 people, so went with the meatier (tastier) spare rib. People really enjoyed them as well. The best part of the ribs though was the piece of skirt I cut off of one of the racks and smoked for 4 hours. I ate that piece as chef's choice while the rest was cooking. It was excellent! I rubbed both the ribs and butt with a store-bought (Durkee) rib and chicken rub that I like. you just have to go easy on it with the ribs or they'll be too salty. Didn't want to experiment too much with a crowd. My next smoke will be mesquite smoked venison loin marinated in my stepfather's bourbon soy sauce brown sugar marinade. This is one of the best meat marinades I've ever had!
