Every year, I host an Xterra Offroading weekend at my house. This will be the 7th annual Back to School Run. If you have an offroad vehicle and are near Central, NY, please stop by. Even if you're not close, we've had people from as far away as California. You don't have to own and Xterra, we like anyone who offroads.

Not at my best moment!
Now for dinner. I have grilled chicken in the past for the Cornell recipe that I modified http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/cornell-chicken-marinade/detail.aspx I have been making this for 30 years, but I add pepper flakes and garlic and a few other modifications, but this year I decided to smoke some ribs and pork butts so I won't have to get on the grill after getting off the trails. Right now, we will have 42 people camping on my front lawn for the weekend.
Since this is a busy week, I prepped everything today. I used Jeff's rub on the ribs and butts. On the butts, I measured out cure #1, then rubbed them in yellow mustard and then added the rub. I will get them up to temperature in time, but I cured butts for a week once before, and I liked the results. I forgot to take pictures of the ribs, but for those, I just rubbed them with mustard and then Jeff's rub.
