I tossed in my Old Smokey and grabbed a 8 lb. pork butt and a 12 lb. turkey I bought on sale out of the freezer..and threw them in my ice chest to thaw. When I got to our deer camp I sit it out and it was cold. Two days later after lunch.. I plugged in the smoker and added some hickory sawdust. I put the thawed butt and turkey on to cook and went hunting. About 3 hours later I came back and wrapped the but and sat the meat in the cooler to stay warm till supper and went back to my blind. Just about dark I came back and pulled and carved the butt and turkey and we heated the beans and made cornbread and ate a nice big hot meal.
