Was in the grocery store awhile back and they had a BOGO sale, picked up a couple of Chucks for the smoker. This post will go from this picture to the end due to the fact that I screwed up taking pictures "AGAIN". Turns out my old digital camera that finally died about a year ago had a small amount of internal memory so if someone (dumb ass guy typing now) did not have the SD card in at least you could get a few pics. After the camera died I fount a good deal on a digital SLR at Costco so I picked it up. Great camera but I found out the hard way that it has no internal memory at all. Typically when I do a smoke I take pictures of the start, seasoning, smoker ready, etc. then while the meat is in the smoker I will take the SD card out and copy pictures to the computer to get a start on the process. This is the 3rd or 4th time I forgot to put the card back in the camera and thought I was taking more pictures, was only getting practice pushing the button I guess. The camera does show that the card is not in but because it's digital there is a bunch of other info shown and unless you look for it it's very easy to miss. Going to tape a piece of paper to the monitor to remind myself "GET THE CARD STUPID".
Anyway, on with the post short on Q-view. Rubbed down the night before with JH Pecan rub, smoked with hickory pellets in the AMNPS. Started with MES at 225 deg then raised to 240 deg after a couple of hours. Foiled at 160 deg and took to 200, into cooler with towel to rest. Total of nine hours in the smoker, 30minute rest in the cooler.
While back in S. Dakota last month visiting our daughter and new granddaughter we went to one of the places where they walk around and carve the meat and other items as you want them. They had some pineapple that the home boss loved so she wanted me to cook one on the grill. Covered it with some brown-sugar put it on the rotisserie.
SOOO, onto the finish, finally someone remembered to put the SD card back in the camera. Home boss had picture of me taking the chuckie apart but it was when the card was missing so I know "never happened". I had this done before the pineapple was ready so I put it in the oven that was already warm but I never thought to cover it with foil so a lot of the moisture it had plus the natural juices I saved, put in the freezer to de-fat and poured back on pretty much evaporated.
Here's the spread, have the chuckie, pineapple, backed taters, cooked cabbage and homemade garlic toast. Even though the chuckie dried out the flavor was still great.
Picture of the pineapple sliced up. I don't eat pineapple but the family all thought it came out great, will be doing one of these again.
Thanks for looking and putting up with the camera rambling and whining.
