  1. Well guys...i decided to try my hand at smokin a butt.Ive smoked a small brisket and a rack of ribs with mixed results so i decided to try a more forgivin meat.I didnt get a pic of the butt when i started but heres one @ 7hr mark...it @ 170. Loving the amount of bark but i think i might have went a touch heavy on the cayenne....


    I'm also doing a cherry-pineapple dump cake 


    More pics to come...let me know what you think!

  3.  ok...my therm is showing 180 with a touch over 4hrs left... i did accu check the therm last night to make sure it was right,,,,could i be facing a soon stall period or is it just cooking fast? ive had it around 250-255ish.

  8. Well..i feel my first butt smoke was a complete success despite a few problems with temp management on my SECB.....here are the final pics.....

    Pulled pork..beautiful smoke ring and very moist...


     i created my own finishing sauce which consisted on 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, 1 cup of  apple juice, 1/3 cup of apple pie moonshine,1/4 cup of my pork rub....... very good!

    Next is the dillo eggs.....


    Next is my world famous bbq beans...
