Pick up these two butts on a great deal at $.87/lb after discounts. Needed to make more BBB and a rolled pork roast. Removed the bone from each and split them keeping the top fat cap half for the BBB and the bottom half for the rolled pork roast. I followed Bear's "Step by Steps" for curing the halves in TQ and Brown sugar for the correct amount of time. The bottom half of the butt was seasoned with an old family recipe and rolled and tied before going on the smoker.
Both of these smokes turned out great. Thanks to the great people on this forum that put forth great ideas to keep us all SMOKIN.
Enjoy and Merry Christmas to All.

Smoking day for the BBB was windy and rainy so fired up the MES, Using Pitmaster pellets in AMAZE tray.
Held the MES temp at 130 for the 8 hours of smoke and drying time and results were as expected.
Developed great color and they picked up the nice smoke flavor.
