Got started on my first ever PP based on info gleaned from here. Since it is only HH6 and myself we are using a smaller 3.5lbs picked up at HEB. I am using Mesquite and Apple for this one to try the mix out.
I rinsed and patted it dry, then applied a liberal amount of rub. Using Salt Lick rub as it was something we both liked when visiting them in the past. Next trip to Coopers and I will pick up a tub of theirs. Wrapped and rested in fridge overnight.
Thanks to the suggestions here I am using a Maverick with remote and able to determine my MES reads about 25deg off. I will let it run for about three hours prior to inserting the meat probe to let it get past the danger zone.
Now for the Q-View. These are just two shots of the butt right after I dropped it in, more to follow. Plan on doing this one naked instead of using the crutch given the smaller size. Guesstimating about 3:30 this afternoon might be at the right IT and then wrap and set in cooler to rest for another hour.
