Like to trim to a reasonable level to get some smoke and rub in but man was this one fat.
Rub was a throw together of coarse pepper, kosher salt, minced garlic, minced onion, garlic powder, and onion powder. Once it passed my sniff test I called it good and rubbed it up.
My bbq store was out of my normal lump so I had to get some other stuff. A bit more money but I am told it is mostly oak in the bag so we will see.
The wicked Wisconsin winter wrecked havoc on my wood supply so what little dry wood is left will have to do. Have a nice dry maple branch that is going to have to work.
Planning to put on around 7 or 8 tonight for a lunch meal tomorrow.
