    Got my butt rubbed,

    Got my liver marinade cold,

    Time to break in my new WSM!

    I'm doing a pre-burn tonight with all the dampers open and will throw the butt on in the morning. I used the Memphis Meat Dust from www.amazingribs.com for my rub and I am going to use white oak and hickory for smoke. I'm really just doing this because the fat content of the butt will help season my smoker and I don't want to do a smoke with garbage just to season 😕. Still hoping to get some good pulled pork out of it! I'll post pictures when it's done and let y'all know how it turned out!😁

    It's very important to stay hydrated during a smoke...

    Now fire up that weber and lets see some smoke!!!

    I just love how my WSM looks next to my performer😍! The small grill in the background is an old kettle that I've had for like 20 years. When I got my performer I chopped the legs down and turned it into a fire pit/bean cooker. Works great!!

    The short grill in the background is an old kettle that I've had for like 20 years! When I got my performer I chopped down the legs and turned it into a fire pit/bean cooker. Works great!!
