    Well, here it is the last day of vacation and I was up at 5:30 am getting the GOSM ready for today's smoke. At 6:10 I loaded in 1 10 lb. butt and a fattie. It's pulled pork for supper tonight and the fattie will go into my Wicked Baked Beans.

    Smoker is holding steady at 248* and the outside temp. is 60*. Just sitting here enjoying the aroma of apple/cherry wood smoke and watching the sun rise up over the Wasatch Mountains.

    Most definitely a Good Morning!

    It's 48F here and raining. I'm watching the rain knock the leaves down from the trees. I have Baby Backs and a beef eye of the round in the GOSM. Will post pics later. First time for ribs for me. Time modified 3-2-1 for the ribs and 155F target for the beef. Gotta try ribs sometime, might as well be today. The beef will make GYPC's Italian Beef sammies for one meal today along with sammies for my lunch all week.

    When do we eat!

    Take care, have fun, and do good.

    Regards,

    Meowey

    Here is a shot 1 1/2 hours into the smoke. Getting ready to turn the fattie over. Forgot to take out my tongs so I used my fingers. The smoker guard dogs were not too happy when I licked my fingers and not them.

    I gotta feel bad for the Smoker Dogs even if this is a cat household! The guard cat likes smoked meat too.

    That is one of the mellowest cats I've ever been around. That picture was taken with her laying on her back in my sister's lap half asleep. Her name is Maggie.

    So as to not hi-jack this thread. Dutch, great lookin' food. When do we all get a taste?

    We are planning on eating around 7:00 pm.

    This will give the butt a chance to rest in the cooler before pulling and saucing.

    Pork Butt is 164* and has been sitting there for about 45 minutes. Time to wrap with foil and add some apple juice. I've been giving the butt a squirt of apple juice about every hour.

    Looks good Dutch...Did you use any Finishing sause?
    I'm surprised any one gets anything to eat with all the guards on duty.
    My 5 little ones like to help also....

  17. Dutch, great photos and i'm still trying to get me a little camera to take photos also. I have a 7 1/2 pound boston butt on right now. Just got back in from checking. Internal temp right now is 114 and my char-broil electric smoker is at about 220. Using mesquite and hickory for the smoker flavor, hoping it turns out okay. Again Dutch great photos and enjoy your sandwiches and those baked beans you've got going.
