Today is the day to smoke butt. Lot's of it. I purchased 30 lbs of butt roasts that were on sale at Food Lion. I went straight to the butcher and asked him to bring me 3 cryovac packs of butts. Each cryovac pack contains 2 butts and the total weight is approx 15 lbs per pack. I selected the two best looking cryovacs and had him price them with stickers and I was on my way.
When i got to the checkout, I received several remarks about my 30 lbs or pork. I heard "when will it be ready?", "Do you live nearby?" and "Are you cooking all of that for the game?". The last comment struck me as funny, as we host the annual Florida Gators and Georgia Bulldogs college football game here in Jacksonville. There are tailgate parties going on all week leading up to the game. RV city is nearly already full.
I got home and fired up the smoker and gave it time to come to 250 degrees. Meanwhile, I went inside and rinsed off the pork and proceeded to give it a good rub down with Magical Barbecue Mix, a store bought BBQ rub that I really like on pork. When the smoker hit 300 degrees, I added the meat, all 30 pounds of it. This is what it looks like currently. I have my probes for the remote Maverick ET 7300 in place and I am ready to smoke.
I'll update this later...
