Fired up the smoker last night at about 11:00. In went an 11 lb pork butt, dusted down with Jeff's rub at about 11:20. It's been in 15 hours now. It would probably be ready to finish, but I got tied up at church and my firebox ran low on fuel so my temps dropped way too low. The IT hovered at 188 for a while and never dropped, so I don't think it's anything to worry about. Otherwise it would probably be ready to come off right now.
Here it is on the first leg of its journey.
After 13 hours. Smoke wood is hickory chunks. I giggled like a school girl when I saw the bark on it:
Now I've got drumsticks and a few thighs, also seasoned with Jeff's rub in cooking. They've been going about an hour now.
For the ABTs, I put a slice of super sharp cheddar from a local dairy outfit in the boat, then packed the rest in with cream cheese mixed with diced button onions. I'm very much looking forward to those.
And on top of all this, it's about 70 degrees and sunny outside right now. Happy Easter and thanks to everyone because there's no chance I'd be producing Q worth showing to anyone without everything I've learned here. For a hack, I'm pretty happy with the results.
I'll have some follow-up Qview when I've got pics of it all when it comes off.
