Good Morning all,
So i had a few too many beer's the other night, and volunteered myself to smoke some pulled pork for a birthday party. The wife's sister brought me over two pork loins, about 4 pounds a piece. Deciding i wanted to try a butt in the new MES, i bought one about nine pounds last night, and will save the loins for making Canadian bacon that i want to try my hand at. So i get home last night from work around 5 pm, run around like a mad man all night, to get ready for this morning, knowing i already had some salmon dry brining in the reefer,(brown sugar and kosher salt) and still had to make my home-made bbq sauce. I rubbed her down with mustard and slapped some rub on and into the fridge for a nap. Smoked the salmon, (200 for a little over an hour, and started my bbq sauce. I woke up late this morning but got the butt on at 430, party starts at 3 pm. nothing i can do now but ride it out and see how it goes. I got a bunch of info from here on doing them in the MES and have done plenty on charcoal, so i hope it turns out.
