I finally decided to do my first overnight smoke tonight. I picked up two great looking 8# butts earlier in the week. I brined them on Friday night in my usual brine of pickling salt and molasses. I pulled them out early this morning and gave them some drying time in the fridge for the day.
Here they are right after coming out of the brine
I need to get a rack to dry things on.. Instead I use an old broiler pan...
I pulled them out of the brine about 9am this morning and put the in the fridge to dry. I let them dry until around 4pm and made up some rub.
The rub I used is
Hungarian Sweet Paprika
Hawaiian Red Salt
Colemans Dry Mustard
These are the rubbed butts getting ready for some more rest with the rub on them
I got the smoker started up around 930pm and by 10 the butts were getting some smoke
I'm spraying them with a 50/50 rum and apple spray every 30-45 minutes...
I'll be in the chat room most of the evening. Stop by and say hi
