Finally got my WSM in the mail! I was at work when it got to the house, but my girlfriend was home. She stuck the box in my bed under the covers and told me it hadn't come so I'd be surprised. Worked like a charm, I'm such a sucker.
So I got another hunk o' pork butt to play with, also covered it in mustard before I used the SUPER DUPER TOP SECRET RUB...in progress lol. No injections this time, we'll see if it comes out as juicy. Started the smoker at around 12, put the butt in at 2.
I also tried my first fatty :) baby spinach, provi, mushrooms (there's more mushrooms under the spinach in the pic), and diced onions. My roommate got home and distracted me, and I forgot to take the wrapped up picture! But his camera is better than mine, so the picture should be better from here on out....so, it evens out ;) There is bacon weaved around it, i promise.
I got bored, and tried some potatoes. Rolled in EVOO and salt (will have sea salt next time)
Fire it up! I used three normal soup cans next to each other instead of a big one...but they still had soup them. My roommate will be confused over the soot on his soup cans....
A it stands:
