    Picked up a nice 3.5 lb shoulder roast and a 6 lb flat. Going to put the shoulder on in the morning and slice it for lunch. Then I'm going to try my first brisket tomorrow night. Got some applewood and mesquite for the roast. For the brisket I'm starting out with lump and some large hickory chunks then I have some oak split for the long haul. I hope it turns out ok.

    Good luck with yours too. Remember no gunpowder in the rub this time or y'all may have another aftershock. ;)

    Well I did get the shoulder done and sliced but had to rush it. It only got 90 minutes on the smoker at 230 then I had to pull it off, baste it, foil it and into the oven. It was at 110 when it went in and i set the alarm for 145 and left my daughter in charge to pull it out and wrap in a towel then into the cooler until I got home. It was tasty and juicy but I wish i could have kept it in the pit longer. The Brisket may have to wait as I'm busy with work today as I was last night. Anyway here's a Q-view of the shoulder.

    Looks like a nice smoke ring on the meat, would be tasty on some toasted bread as a sammie. Good luck on the brisket smoke!
