    I wasn't sure this was going to happen last night but the storms they forecast all night long just seemed to fizzle after an hour. Threw 2 butts on with Jeff's rub and spritzing with fruit punch. They went on about 1:30 AM and now are at 167 and 168 degrees.

    After having such an easy time with temps on my turkey smoke last week I was suprised at the problems I had keeping the temps down last night. I used the minion method but I think I put too many hot coals in or perhaps they hadn't burned low enough when I added them. Temps were about 250-265 degrees most of the night.

    Plan on adding 2 fatties later, one filled with a cheese omlette the other with sauteed onion, mushroom and green apples.

    Hope everyone has a great Father's Day!

    Glad that weather broke for you and allowed you to get the smoker fired up. Have a great smoke and Daddy's Day

    Butts just came out a little while ago, about 10 1/2 hours total time. They were done around the same time which is always nice, one was 195 one was 196 degrees. Fortunately a little piece of the bark stuck to the grate so I "had to" sample it. Didn't want to leave a dirty grate, lol.

    ABTs just went on. I had some left over cheese omlette from the fatty so I figure why not try them as a stuffing for an ABT? I'm calling it, bacon, egg and cheese in a ABT. Maybe they will replace the normal egg sandwichs at the delis around here.

    Qview to follow later when everything is all done.

    sounds like a great ABT stuffing-few chores here & it's smoke time-easy today-brats and ABT's -Allie wants shrimp stuffed with cheese-I gonna do some with my smoked sausage- the saguaros are fruiting so gonna try a few with a cacti touch.
