    Hey y'all. Never smoked meat before,but decided to try my hand at a Boston Butt for a July 4th feast this evening. Getting into it, I had no idea it took so long, but I started at about 7 this morning, so I should be ready come dinner time (whenever that will be lol!)

    When all is said and done, I'll be sure to put ups some pics of my 5lb butt that's gonna be turned into some fantastic chopped pork!

    The rub recipe and method I'm using come from this blog. http://chaseblackwell.com/smoked-boston-butt-with-rosemary-and-brown-sugar-rub/

    Welcome to SMF,

     Pull up a stump an sit a while..

     Yes the butts and briskets can take many hours to smoke properly , But when all is said and done .It's worth every hour you tend the fire.

    The butt turned out great! Still chompin' on the leftovers. Unfortunately I forgot to take some pics of the meat after I pulled it, but rest assured it was delicious. Can y'all see the pic in my second post? I kept getting an error when I tried to post it, but I can see it now.

    Welcome to SMF glad you decided to join us. It looks like a good start glad to hear it came out good. We can see the Qview (Pic) what happened was that some types of post are held for moderator approval until a newer member gets x amount of posts so we had to actually approve it before it showed up. This feature is meant to try to keep spam off the site but at the same time it catches our new members that have good stuff to show us to. When I approved it I just deleted the duplicate posts and it won't be long and your posts won't be affected by the filter. Have fun and happy smoking
