So I hear you folks love this...
Bought my MES 30" on clearance on 08/11/16 - Thread HERE for reference.
In that I mention we were doing a Butt smoke for my mom's birthday.. well why do one when you can do two?
It was a real surprise for both my parents to show up after lunch on the previous Sunday and drop off a scratch made lunch/dinner/snack/sammich filler that lasted them for an entire week.. The second one was kept for our pleasure only..
Two starting specimens.. When my wife goes to buy meat.. she don't play, and it's her job to rub it for me..
Loaded and about to be locked.. No, they weren't small at all
(yes the "water" pan was left in by wife's accidental inclusion, it ended up full of drippings)
After the flip about 3 hours in..
Not much different from above.. but here they are "done" .. well except for wrapping and resting.
My opinion, better than any BBQ house locally, but 6/10 to my standards, we know what to do right and what not to do next time.
Not enough smoke flavor for one, but we were shy about adding more and more chips early on, still haven't pulled the trigger on the AMNPS yet, doing that later this week.
Second issue was with using the app and it resetting the temp and time.. so we kinda lost track of how long they had been on (fixed that with a dedicated timer) so they were wrapped much later than we meant and ended up a bit tough/overdone for my personal tastes.
I wish we had better after pics, but a few drinks were imbibed and.. and the camera gets put away because of what happened last time
I will end that part by saying that by the following Saturday no one had any Pork Shoulders left to eat..
But here's dinner for tomorrow..
A very light rub, and doing 2-2-1 tonight.
As of posting this we have 30min left on the timer and then gonna go wrap them up.. will update with better "finished" pics on the ribs.
The excitement is real.
Update after first 2 hours..
2nd Update, after 2-2
And.. Back on for the last hour
Did I say these were for tomorrow nights dinner?
I may have lied at the start of my post.. to myself...
