First Butt, a Fattie, and First ABTs

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well, I am taking the plunge and trying my 1st Pork Butt. Got it at Costco for $1.27 per pound. Did the yellow mustard and rub thing, refrigerated overnight. I also figured as long as I have a 12-hour smoke going, why not try some ABTs and throw on a fatty!

I tried to core the jalapeños but they kept cracking so I split them. I fried up some bacon and mixed it in with the cream cheese - never can have too much bacon! I think I'll invest in a corer.

The fatty is a naked JD Hot.

Here they are, in all their glory!
I'll post pictures of the finished product.

Good eyes, MossyMo! I ran out of bacon cream cheese filling! icon_eek.gif

Maybe wifey can go fetch more cream cheese; I still have 15 jalapeño halves... PDT_Armataz_01_35.gif

Oh, man. Snuck a couple of ABTs off the top grate while misting apple juice over the pork butt on the bottom grate. Them ABTs is good! They need to go a little longer, however, as the bacon is not quite done enough.

Pictures coming soon!

ABTs are done! I wonder why there were only thirty. As MossyMO pointed out, I started with 35! confused.gif

Looks good Bill. Those ABTs are awsome. Gotta love them.

I always split my ABTs down the middle and just lay a piece of partially cooked bacon on top. Easier to get all the seeds and stuff out.

Finally, the Grand Finale. I was so excited, I forgot the Q-View before I pulled it!

Here is the pork butt ready for the sauce. And like you, BA_LoKo, my wife thinks I am nuts for having tongs in one hand and a camera in the other.

Special thanks to DeejayDebi - I used your guide as a baseline. Didn't do the towel method but it still turned out great.
