    Picked up two butts today gonna go slow and low all night. Not sure if I'm foiling or not gonna see how it goes. My neighbors always tell me to let them know when I'm doing a butt so they can buy one for me to throw in for them. Being the nice neighbor that I am I always give them a bunch when its done. Today while I was at the store I picked up one for me and one for them. I haven't told them yet but they should be pleasantly surprised when I tell them I threw one on for them. Here's some q-view. Feel free to grab a cold one as I am and enjoy the the long smokey ride.
    The rub.
    The butts.
    The butts rubbed.
    TBS, trust me it's there I can smell it.
    Make shift wind break.

    Holy cow, man!  I thought starting my ribs at 3 in the afternoon was insane, lol.  I'm along for the ride.

    Dave it looks like you've already had a long day, I'll cut you some slack. Lol. Once my temps steady out later an I've thrown a bunch of TBS at them I'll set the Mav alarms and see the finish tomorrow also.

    Too chilly to sit outside even with a fire so I talked my better half into joining me into basement for a few. Love my maverick et732, the only thing I might like more is my new OTBS member status under my name ;-)

    Dave your smoker is looking great!! I promise to uphold the standards. I'm honored to have the new status. A couple more and I'm hitting the pillow also. I have a perfect thing working right now. As the meat temp slowly rises so is the smoker temp all while the ambient it dropping. Gonna set the Mav alarms in a few.
     
  17. I work 12-8 am so I'm in for the ride. Looking good so far.

    Well we just came to agreement in what we are having with the pulled pork. It looks like salt potatoes, coleslaw, and Dutches wicked baked beans ( finally my first attempt at).
     
  19. Looking forward to seeing the q-views.

    Well, its 1 a.m. Things are still looking good. Just need a little bed time snack. Not sure this is a good idea at this hour. Wife went to bed so it looks like its just me and the pup.
    Really?
    Covered in pepper jack and homemade cold smoked jalapeño hot sauce.
    See you in the A.M.
