Okay, maybe not so much so. The first bite started off a little dry. I could not taste the flavor of the smoke. My wife, of course, dis-agrees. Then I keep slicing & slicing & slicling & suddenly, I find my thirty dollars.
I guess one day I will become the "Master" carver. Until then, it's cave slices for everyone.
I could not really taste the two smoke's I used, White Oak & Pecan. I think I am a mesquite person. My wife raves. I think she is my #1 fan. I could taste the flavor of the whole garlic inserted in various locations around. The middle was soft, juicy & tender. No tough chewing here. Now to try it on my guests later on today, as it is Saturday now. Oh, I let it rest for 2.5 hours, since I had to make a midnight run to the grocery store.
I hope the views were to everyone's liking. Thank you for letting me share.
These shots were after I signed off. I went back to finish cutting & I realized that the dry part was right at the front of my airflow from the foil / baffle. I started cutting that meat & it talked to me. Squish, squish, squish.
All I can say is, WOW! I can not wait until my next one which will be a full packer. Ooooh....burnt ends. I heard so much..........
