    I know I do. Try and say it like Harry Carey would have. It's funnier that way.

    Haven't had any PP in quite a while so I figured I'd get one done and make enough to stock the freezer with some individual sized portions for lunches and such. Maybe some PP Pizza is in my future?

    Here we go...
    7.5 lb (yeah I know it's enhanced, it was an impulse buy) bone-in butt roast

    fat cap side (leaving it on)

    flip side

    rinsed it off, patted dry and hit it with yellow mustard and some JB Fatboyz Sweet Rub. I've never tried this one. But I like their other stuff.

    hit it pretty light with the rub, you know, just in case I hate it. LOL

    Got it all wrapped up in Saran Wrap and foil and put it in the fridge for the night.

    cleared a path to the smoker this morning. 20*F here in Des Moines and hardly any wind. Cold, but not a bad day for smoking.

    Minion Method in the WSM using 50/50 mix of oak and cherry

    just hot water in the water pan

    not sure why my camera cropped this image, but it's going down on the bottom grate

    Got a Dudestrami http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...threadid=85935
    and a chuckie working on the top grate

    And we're off!!!

    A couple hours in and I probed everything. Grabbed this picture through the side door.

    Be back later with updates and more qview. Thanks for looking!

    Your posts are killing me today. Making me hungry, and feel like a wimp for not smoking in this cold Ohio weather. But you have it worse than we do!

    Love pulled pork...and man that looks like it's going to be good!!

    <best Harry Carey voice> I do.. I like to have it piled high, Carolina style on a soft seeded bun... and I love to wash it down with an ice cold Budweiser.

    Holy Cow!

    I have to say it too I love the butts here. We were out of some Pulled pork in the freezer too. I had to smoke one then other day with your rub that same one Fat Boys but I think mine was the regular one and it was good to. But then we had to mix some sauce in with some for sammies and I used your sauce again it was the Gates sauce and it's really good with alittle almost taco spices in it too along with alitle heat too. So thanks for the exchange and I will keep using up the stuff and write more reviews. Thanks Jay.

    LOL I figure if I just move it around the yard it might work.

    Yeah, it's been a few weeks since I've been able to smoke anything. My stash in the freezer was down to nothing, so I was due.

    HAHAHAHA! That's AWESOME!!!!! I can hear him now.

    Thank you everybody else for the kind words. I appreciate it.

    Thanks Mark. What's funny is that after I had all this ready to go I had completely forgotten about the stuff you sent me. I've got another shelf above the fridge where the wife put all of that since there was no more room in the spice cupboard. Had I thought of it, I would have used another one of yours.

    Glad you liked some of the stuff I sent! Too bad neither the Hawks or the Gators made it to the end. Oh well, Roll Tide!

    I love pulled pork and that looks like one tasty butt. It was 27 this morning here in NC when I started smoking a couple of fatties. Bet it got warmer down here during the day though than it did up where you live.

    Looking forward to seeing pictures of the finished product.

    It's 5:30 which means it's now dark, it's getting colder and now the wind is picking up. And to top it off, apparently I didn't load enough fuel in the WSM as my temp dropped below 200 and I couldn't get it back up. The temps that is. Since the pastrami and the chuckie have been wrapped for a while now, and the butt is at 150, I've decided to go ahead and finsh her off in the oven.

    It's looking nice, I must say. Put it into a glass cassrole dish, poured on some apple juice, tented with foil and we'll take her on up to 202-ish

    Thanks for looking
