Cut after cooled in the fridge, decent pink ring for my first try. I used misquete charcoal and oak wood chunk... I didn't want to over smoke. Had plenty of smoke flavor...but NOT enough flavor from the rubs.

yea didn't think would take so long and by the time I was don't it was 1am and im stay at home dad with 3yr old twins so I put into fridge and was cold. my kids (and wife &I) ate cubed and cold with beans and potatoes, also I scliced and warmed on cast iron skillet then loaded with bbq for a sandwitch. In future I will start early like 5am so I have time to fully rest in cooler and pull that night.
