Here's my butt rubbed and ready to go in as soon as I get back from my run in the morning. I rubbed it with Plochman's and my rub mix which I wrote down initially but altered it several times so I don't know where I am now. I was really pleased with my first try but it took almost 15 hrs! I know that this one will probably be the same but I just couldn't believe how long it took...but also couldn't believe how good it was so that's an even trade I'd say. I plan on smoking it with a mix of hickory and apple...anybody have an opinion on Pecan or Cherry in this application? I'm going to spritz it every hour or so with apple cider vinegar and have a mix of apple juice and water in the drip pan.
A little about me-I'm in my mid 30's, I have one child and one in the hopper. I farm and my wife currently stays at home and takes care of the boy. She's also attending school in the fall at the U of I. We're plenty busy but of all the hobbies I've tried, Smoking various meats is the only one i've really latched on to. I appreciate any of your guys comments and advice on my journey, Thanks!
P.S. I will try to post more photos as this thing progresses
