  1. Got a nice huge pork butt just sat overnight with my rub on it. I don't want to wait to smoke it!

  7. Oh and I always use oak soaked over night in water. My good friend had a fallen red oak in his yard for a good ten years so it's very dry and well seasoned for smoking!! In also looking into a nearby apple orchard (milburns) for some nice apple branches to try. They always drop branches and they either get thrown out and chipped up or burnt.
  8. Decided to throw a few shots worth of jack on the coals. Lit up nice to warm up the new chunks and wow what a smell!!!!! I've (of course) been tasting a few small prices of the bark of the pork and dam!!! Worth it!!!
