I'm back after having emergency surgery at the end of June. Would you know it after they sent me home, that night I had 101 degree fever. They put me right back into the hospital for another week for an infection.
Also my condolences to Scarbelly's family.. I was very sorry to hear about that after I came back..
Okay that's all out of the way..
Our HEB grocery store down here has Boston Pork Butts on sale for $1.00 dollar a pound.. I couldn't resist..
I'm going to season the butt tonight & cook it in the smoker tomorrow night so it will be ready for Sunday afternoon or night.. lol
Here is the butt naked.. I placed it on the cookie sheet because I can get kinda wild with the seasoning shaker..
Here it is with the mustard & then Jeff's Rub freshly applied..
I always let the meat sit on the counter for a few minutes so the rub can liquefy before I wrap the meat..
You can see the difference between the two pics. Almost looks good enough to eat.. Well almost..
Now the butt is wrapped & ready to sleep the night away in the fridge..
I plan to get this into the smoker around 10:00 PM central time tomorrow night. I'll keep everyone posted as we get the smoke going..
Sorry everyone for being MIA for so long.. Had to get well...
