Butt, ribs and bass for kiddos birthday!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Got a late start today so it's going to be a long one. Oldest and youngest are having a birthday party tomorrow and between the two the menus is large mouth bass, st Luis ribs (wanted baby backs but could not find decent ones) and pulled pork. I will update Qview as the next two days go on. I am doing the butt today, ribs in the morning and bass as we start the party.

Hickory and Cherry using lump coal.

10 lb butt rubbed 24 hours with Jeff's rub. Apple cider/bourbon spritz every hour at 225 on the akorn is the plan.

Just went in after getting spritz

Well it cooked a little quicker but we did have a very late stall at 185. Going to be reheated tomorrow in a crock pot for tomorrow. Can't do it on the smoker cause I don't have room. Any thoughts on the best way to make sure it doesn't dry out over night and tomorrow?

ribs are going on. For the first time I am not cooking baby backs and I am not foiling. I am going to spritz every hour and smoke em' till they are done to temp and bend test. Here they are after sitting in rub all night. I don't think I jacked up the trimming to bad.

Two hours in and things are looking good from here. Bass just went into the brine so everything is going smooth so far. Hard part is going to get that akorn down to 200 for the bass.

Sounds like the kids are going to have a great party.  That butt is looking real good.
