    Been wanting to do my own BBB for some time. Read alot on the forums here. Asked alot of questions (Thanks Pops). So Its 20 MPH winds with gusts up to 40, but its today or not so I'm going for it.

    Here's what I have. The front is only CBP, clockwise from that is pure maple, next is onion & garlic powder, last is brown sugar.

    WOW this stuff smokes as fast as my roast beef did? 1 hour in & we're at 113? I used the thermapen as a back up & it says 111. Pretty fast for 1 hour in 20-40 MPH wind?

    well I guess the fast rise is slowing which is good because I was starting to wonder about the meat taking on any color. It's been 2 hours now & we're at 130 & taking on some color. Hard to tell how the smoke is going because of the wind, but I can smell it well so I'll leave it be.

    Well the three smaller pieces are done. The larger one is at 144? The wind has eaten through my lump so fast! In 5 hours I have went through a bag & 1/2. The larger one is in the oven as I'm out of fuel. Taking it out at 150 so not much longer. Here are the smaller three. Sorry Nepa no pics of the bread.

    So I & the meat had an overnight rest. In between jobs right now so I couldn't wait to slice a little. Not bad forafirst round. Not salty at all. In fact I add a little when frying. Alos needs more smoke, but I'm happy for now. Africanmeat, that was for the probe.
