I know I have been talking about this for a couple of weeks, but today really is the day. The rains that were predicted for today, were moving through yesterday so I put it off till today. It was a long sleepless night in anticipation of today. The clock was set for 5 am but at 4:15 I just could not lay there any longer. I got up and started a pot of coffee and went outside to start my fire. Came in and had a cup then started making the rub. I then removed the pig from the cooler and washed it down good, patted it dry and applied the rub. I got the hind half on at 6:45 and the front half on about 7:10. Tempetures are running about 240-245. First chance Ive had to post.
