It's been long time no see. I finally made some time to cook another Boston Butt. I'm using my Oklahoma Joe Longhorn smoker on this one. I usually use nothing but oak wood with this smoker but I wanted to try something different. I'm hoping that by using this method I might get longer cook times without having to mess with the pit every hour. lol
I'm using Stubbs Natural Charcoal with Oak wood chunks. I bought a 9 pound Butt from my Butcher tonight so I know it's fresh.. :)
I know everybody likes pics so here they are:
I don't have a charcoal basket so I used a few bricks to divide my fire box. I wanted to make sure before I invest in a basket.
Here we are loaded up with charcoal. I have wood chunks buried in the charcoal. I only used 5 pounds of Stubbs. That may be a little lite. I can always add more.
Of course we have to see a naked pic of the meat..
I have the meat seasoned with Jeff's Rub. I used the Savory Texas rub modification. It sure is good.
I will post more pics later as the smoke progresses..
