Butt Today - Tired of the Cold - Almost Spring

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Howdy Folks,

It's been downright cold here this past week. On Wednesday March 7th we were the cold spot in the nation at -34F. Yesterday we were -29F. I'm tired of this stuff. (Using a polite word) The forecast said that today (Sat the 10th) we are going to get up to almost +40F. Woo-hoo! I pulled a butt out of the freezer on Wed eve. Last night I rubbed it with my own rub.

(Rub recipe attachement is in MS Word format.)

Threw it in the GOSM this AM. Smoking with hickory. I may switch to apple after foiling the butt and putting some "Wicked Beans" in the smoker. Ambient air temp at smoker start was +12F. It has since warmed up to +25F. Smoker settled in at 225-235F. Added a fatty and a block of scrapple after an hour and a half. (That's for lunch)

Hour 1 1/2

Hope you all have a great smokey day!!

Take care, have fun, and do good!

Here is the Wiki article on scrapple.


I usually slice it and fry it crisp in butter and eat it with maple syrup on it, along with some fried eggs. Today I threw a brick in the smoker. The texture is so soft that you can see the deep grate marks in it. The smoke did add to it. The next time I smoke scrapple I think I will pre slice it and place it on a shallow baking sheet to keep it from falling through the grate.

Take care, have fun, and do good!

I too am tired of the cold. It was gorgeous here on the ninth returning home from work. Today, was very overcast and bouts of rain. Went ahead with doing some ribs and taters. As an after thought threw on some hard boiled's. Today because of the weather I cheated some. Did the ribs and eggs in the electric "sausage maker" about hour and half for the ribs to get some smoke. Heat was at 130 ish. Took them off and in the oven. Made homemade Q sauce. Ketchup, vinegar, Worstshire (or however you spell it), some hot sauce, beer!!!!, garlic and onion powder. Cooked ribs in oven for two hours uncovered at 225. Then covered for an hour. Started the horizontal thinking I was gonna finish the ribs on it. Put taters on the horizontal (rubbed with bacon fat, sprinkled with seasonings). Ready to put ribs on horizontal and I could barely pick them up without falling apart. Instead decided to baste and leave in oven last hour. Ribs--awesome, lightly smoked, yummy rub, good Q suace. Taters---always a hit, charred smokey, what a mess with butter and sour cream. Eggs---gonna go for second opinion tomorrow with lunch. Saved some ribs and sauce, gonna pull it apart for a sandwich. Cheers to all, SPRING AHEAD!!!!!!!!!!

Take care, have fun, and do good!
