    Here are some early pictures from today's smoke. There is still a looong way to go.

    Meet the meat:

    Slathered in mustard and rub (I see now that I probably should have done this last night - oh well):

    Into the smoker with you!:

    3.5 hour mark.... doing nicely:

    Despite the look of things, I am trying to keep the door closed as much as possible... I opened it up to spritz apple juice and figured I'd snap a quick picture.

    I haven't been monitoring the internal temp of the meat yet (will buy a remote probe digital thermometer but haven't yet). I have some old school analog meat thermometers that I'm planning to stick in there in a couple hours.

    Thanks for all the advice, the 5-day course etc everyone! I'm excited.

    Oh, FFR, I used treegje's universal rub. It was great on my turkey legs yesterday so I'm hoping it compliments the pork just as well.

    Looks like you are off to a great start Kaiser. Looks like a happy ending ahead with some great pp [​IMG] Don't forget the finishing sauce the recipe is in a sticky at the top of the pork forum. Very easy to make and adds some fantastic flavor. Don't forget the qview of the finished product [​IMG]

    Now those are some good looking butts there. Just keep things going in thats direction and you'll be eating some mighty fine pulled pork really soon.

    All right! Butts are done and in the cooler!

    I think I made a couple minor mistakes due to not being very confident about what my temperatures were (foiled a bit too early, might have gone a bit above 205 at the end), but I expect it will work out okay. Will put up the final pics when I shred it up in about an hour!

    It looks good and its a very forgiving cut of meat so you should be fine.

    Well done! [​IMG]

    By what means did you wrap that delicious creation?

    Not sure what you mean by wrap... the vacuum packaging was done with a Food Saver.

    I used Falconer's post as a guide, but with mustard and treegje's rub. I used Falconer's finishing sauce.

    It was pretty darn good. The mustard made it look creepy, but it tasted great.

    The finishing sauce was good, but I think I might do something a bit different next time.

    This is what I meant. Sorry about that... What type of Food Saver do you have?

    Once again, great job! I'm drooling!

    Ah - I bought it a long time ago back in the infomercial days (though I think I actually got it at Sam's). It's a Vac 550.
