I'll try to get further pictures throughout the cook. I'm doing them with a 2.5-1.5-1 method.
Hitting it with 225 heat throughout the cook.
Sorry for your loss! Great way to pay tribute to your dad. My mom and I had a bond over food as well and when she passed, I became even more into cooking, smoking, and much to my chagrin, baking. You will find that no matter how much you miss him, he will always be with you especially on the grill or in the kitchen!
So sorry to hear about your Dad. What a great way to honor and remember him!! God bless.
