Home with Pneumonia and a smoke

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Third day being home with Pneumonia. Feeling much better. I think the antibotic is kicking in.....
No better time to smoke a butt....biggrin.gif

Had a 11# picnic and trimmed down to about 8.5#. Just got it on around 8am. May need the wifes help tonight wrapping in foil and towel???

Mix of Hickory, Pecan, Apple and Cherry.
I will spritz after about 2-3 hours with 50/50 apple juice and apple cidar vinegar.
Also a bacon, egg and cheese fatty.....

Pics to come later if my body cooperates........

Glad that you are impoving. The mother-in-law was told she has pneumonia last Monday and was sent home with some antibiotics. The antibiotics didn't work as well as the Doc hoped and last night he put her in the hospital to get some kicked up IV antibiotics. Of course it doesn't help that she had a collapsed lung almost two months ago and was in intensive care for five weeks!

Looking forward to seeing you finished butt!

Hope your smoke goes well.

Was a little drier than normal. I removed from the oven at 197*, sat in cooler for 1.5 hrs.
Must be that I forgot to give it a bath before foiling?????
I added the finishing sauce to all after pulling and just a slight amount of red BBQ sauce.....
Tatses good but not my best...........

That looks soooo good. Those little pieces you ate while pulling it apart must have made you feel better, and the smells along the way had to help clear your lungs a bit. Hope you're all better soon.
