Butt, Fattie, ABTs & a chick

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Damn hot here today in Augusta, GA. Decided to have a little family bbq; just the kids and the wife, a little kidde pool, some hot dogs on the grill and a bunch of smoking meat. I'm paying for it with a sun burn now.

Anyways, decided to try several pieces of royal lump added to my smoke pan in the CCSV24 for something different. I used apple and cherry wood for the smoke. My idea was to use the lump to help regulate the temps a bit and to also help the wood stay lit. I have an issue of smoking at 225* or so and it takes a while to get my chips to smolder. It worked so I'm going to keep this up with some tweaks.

It was a small butt, around 6-7 lbs I would say. Used my rub and took it to 165* foiled and put in the oven until it reached 200*, did the towel & cooler thing, finishing sauce and it be damn good. That will be tomorrow night's dinner. Did a fatty too nothing special, just rubed it up. For tonights dinner I did Chicken parts that started in an applesauce bath for an hour or so and some ABTs. Oh yeah Dukes beans to round out the smoke. .

Betweeen the smokes and 2.5 year old and a 6 month old I'm freaking tired!!

On to the Q pics:

Good looking grub.

Thank you for doing a fatty. Even a simple one. I thought for sure we might have a weekend of no fatties. And that'd be a cryin shame.

Cold and rainy up here in Iowa so I have to drool over your's.

Apple sauce on the chicken? How'd you like that? Never tried that.

Everything looks really great MArk! Nice job. Was scrolling through your pics and thinking about how each one looked good and what I was going to say, but everything looks great!
Got a bit of sunburn myself today. It ended up getting up in the low 90s hee and I spent 6 hours tilling the field for the garden. Drunk now so it doesn't hurt but tomorrow...
