Butt smoke in the "mild weather"

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I guess a forecast high of "only" 93 degrees qualifies as a break from the heat we've been experiencing here in Georgia, so I decided to fire up the smoker.  I'm doing a butt that's a little over 6lbs with a slight modification of Jeff's rub, and smoking with apple, cherry, and a little bit of hickory.  It's been on for a little over 4 hours and the IT is right at 150* with the smoker temp settling nicely around 225-230*.  The Mrs. and the Mini are visiting family all day, so I get to sit around drinking beer, watching NFL pre-season on the NFL Network, and flipping over to watch the Braves here in about an hour or so.  Gonna be a great day!  I'll post more Qview as the day progresses.Late Summer smoke

Looks like a great start, hopefully the Braves play a little better than they did last night and while so far it's not as hot as yesterday when we hit 99 it does seem more humid.today

Yesterday it was beautiful down here.

 

Today it's hotter than heck again.

Well, I've hit the stall - it's taken well over an hour to go from 167* to 169*  That's okay though, 'cuz the Braves are winning and the beer is cold!

Good luck and good smoking.

Haha!  Sorry, too busy eating last night to post a pic.  I didn't get a pic after pulling because my wife elbowed me out of the way and confiscated the pork for herself :)  Here's the butt right out of the smoker:
