Man forget the stress. folks will wait for great food. Have a stiff drink and tell them its done when its done. About the foil. Unless your a fan of a thick bark, I'd foil. it makes life a lot simpler. I have nothing to prove. I sell my pork faster then I can smoke it. Its flavor and tender folks want. If you don't have Jeffs rub its a lose cause in my opinion,. I have a life. 11-12hrs in the smoker. Hr. rest and triple my money. I'd put my pork against anyones. Stop stressing and just do it man. :-)
LOL. I always smell like a smokehouse if I'm hosting an event. I'm the cook! I don't give a shit what people think I smell like. If they like your food thats all that matters.
Well said! I feel the same way. I've also developed a theory that smelling smoky works like an aphrodisiac on the missus or significant other. If you're not a tall guy, you can be her mountain man if not her man mountain. If you are tall, you can be her mountain man mountain...
