Really loading up the smoker this weekend with a 9# butt and ribs giving this rub a try http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/170874/rub-recipe (with some minor alterations for spice cabinet shortages).
Would love some ideas for BBQ based finishing sauces for the pork butt. I know, I know if it's done right it doesn't need any but man o man I love me the BBQ sauce.
Trying something different normally I coat my ribs with yellow mustard before the rub and completely forgot. Butt ,pun intended, I figured like the old saying a bad day smoking is better than a good day working. Already wrapped the ribs for overnight fridge time and I will have a pic of the butt shortly.
I did do something different with the butt too. I had this balsamic vinegrette dressing from Sam's Club in the fridge too so before I did the mustard coat I put some on and let it sit for a bit before I continued on with the normal operation. I will let you know how it goes, obviously it is hard to mess up a butt so I don't know how to really judge it. So if I don't have enough variables as it is I am smoking the butt tonight and wrapping and oven finishing it. That and the wife says "Well if you are running the smoker today lets do some chicken hind quarters for dinner."
Now I am starting to feel bad because nothing else is getting done for winter prep, don't worry though another glass of beer should correct this feeling.
Hope y'all have the same great weekend we are enjoying. pics soon
