Well, I ventured off to do another smoke in the rain. I set up the canopy in my back yard last night in anticipation for the weather and for once the weather man was right. It's raining here in southwest OH, but I'm not letting that stop my from smoking a butt today. I woke up nice and early (0330) and after having a few adult beverages last night, I was not looking forward to being up this early. Smoking it w/ cherry (first time I've used it on a butt). Anyway, on to the qview! Here's the butt I got from my butcher. Weighed in at a little over 5 lbs, and I absolutely loved the marbling in it And here it is all rubbed up waiting for the temp to come up in the smoker. I hit it again w/ a little more rub that I had left over before going in. I normally rub them and let them sit over night, but recently I've been doing my ribs right before going in and have had great success, so I thought I'd try it w/ the butt. More to follow, enjoy!
