Like all of us I couldn't resist the sale on 8 pound butts at the local supermarket.....I let it set around trying to decide on what to do with it and ran out of time. had to cook or freeze by today so of course on this beautiful day off it had to hit the smoke. Decided on trying something a little different on this one, i rubbed heavily with my latest and greatest idea for butt rub tightly wrapped and let it sit over night. This morning at 7 i pulled it out and injected with some apple cider/vinegar/honey/seasonings. Used a quick and easy mustard slather lightly over then medium/lightly shook on more seasoning, then let it sit to warm up and while the smoker was warming up. Since it's not quite warm enough for me to set outside and baby sit my junk chargriller and the UDS is still sitting out back "in progress" i fired up the Masturbuilt gas smoker(MGS) with apple wood chunks. These smokers are really nice for $140 dollars but like all cheap rigs you have to do some modifying/rigging, but once you get it right its set and forget(even though i check on it every 3 seconds...excitement. maverik is in the mail on the way). Anyhow i left it alone until it got to 140 degrees(within 4 hours) then made up a whiskey/apple cider blend mop sauce and put on every 1.5 hours. Lets see how this thing goes!
