Ok guys and gals I am em-BARK-ing on the "Journey to the Center of the Butt" starting early tomorrow morning (about a 2AM start time) and will be posting Qview as I go. I have read and re-read all the threads and sticky's and am pretty confident that this will turn out AWESOME. Going to use SoFLA's finishing sauce (thanks for the recipe) and make some cole slaw to go with.
I currently have the Butt rubbed (8.5 lb. and it's sitting in the fridge. I will be using a combination of Hickory and Cherry wood with some water and spices in the drip pan. I trimmed the butt because I like the rub on the meat and not the fat. Left some though for a nice juicy baste. During cooking I will be spritzing with apple cider mixed with some home made pork stock.
Well that's it for now. Wanted to get the thread going early and I promise Qview and BearView at the appropriate times. Thanks so far for all of the knowledge you guys and gals share. Because of it I am not nervous the least bit. I have time so 12-14 smoke is no problem. Oh and I have a cooler chillin with tomorrorow morning's beer selection So till we "MEAT" again here's to smoking some Q
