Been looking forward to this weekend ever since I decided to buy the CGSP in March.
It was my daughter's second Bday, plus Father's Day weekend, so I took the opportunity to smoke a Boston Butt. Found a nice 9 pounder from the local butcher and started at 11 pm Friday night. I haven't had the chance to make any modifications yet, but everything worked great as is (but I still plan on making some of the mods). I made up a rub and my own homemade Chipotle BBQ Sauce. I decided to putt the butt in a pan instead of directly on the grill, because I wanted to protect the bottom from any temp spikes, since it was my first smoke, and because I haven't installed a baffle yet. I also ended up not foiling the butt for the entire smoke and that worked out very nicely. The Butt reached 200 Deg at 11 am the next morn, and I proceeded to wrap it in foil and a few towels and into the cooler for a few hours. I unwrapped it and began pulling it right before people started showing up. I didn't get any pics of pulled, because I got too busy once people began showing up; about 20 adults and 10 kids total. The parts was "Dora and Diego" themed for my daughter so I made up enchiladas, pico de gallo, guacamole, spanish rice, empanadas, and cole slaw to go with the pork. Everything was great, and I owe many thanks to everybody on the forum for all of the great information here. Here are some pics to get your weeks started right!
