First smoke of the year! With qview

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,
Just wanted to share my first smoke of the year. I did two pork butts, a dozen chicken thighs and my first ever fatty. I'll post the last two in their appropriate areas. I also made my own rub and my own sauce. All of it turned out great. I don't have an official smoker so I do it all on my Weber Kettle.

The local grocery store didn't have any large bone in butts so I ended up with 2. Both were about 4 lbs. Here they are as I'm getting ready to start the rub process Friday night.

First a slathering of yellow mustard followed by a rubdown

Grill fired up and ready to smoke. I used a drip pan filled with apple juice.

And the meat goes down

I used a combination of apple and green mesquite chips soaked in water and laid on top of quality lump charcoal for the heat and smoke source. A nice smoke starting to happen

Here's the last shot. One of the butt's after I pulled it off the smoker. Then I wrapped it in foil and poured apple juice over it. The I put it in a cooler wrapped in towels for about an hour. In the meantime we had the fatty as an appetizer.

I had almost a whole one left. Last night I chopped it up and today I brought it into the office, covered in sauce and is now sitting in a crock-pot. Can't wait for lunch!

Thanks for looking.

Well I just noticed that the address for the photos are all the same. I guess you'll be able to look at all the photos once you get into the album on Shutterfly. I need to spend some time learning how to actually embed the picts into my thread...sorry. But hey you'll be able to see the fatty and the chicken too!

Thanks Erain. This is the only way I've ever done it. Most of the time my results are as good or better than any other time I've had smoked foods from other places. I'd like to get a real pit smoker at some point, but for now I'm comfortable doing it this way. I don't see any reason to move over to a vertical smoker if I'm getting good results.

Thanks for the kind words and the points. Much appreciated.
