I had it for lunch again today and I could really taste the flavor much more as I was not rushing. I hate rushing a good smoke, but I got away with it this time.

Thanks again for all your help. The finishing sauce was a nice touch as well, I liked that.


     Glad to hear your butt turned out great for you!  I know what you mean about the timing, I've had a few that have taken longer than anticipated and have gotten in trouble more than a few times for having Sunday supper at 9 and as late as 10 p.m.!  LOL  Now I try to start them much earlier knowing that I can keep it for at least 4 to 6 hours in the cooler if need be.  Sometimes I think it has a little more flavor the second day.

Glad the wifey was happy with the outcome and the butt was great.

Sounds about right to me. Glad it came out.

I'll be doing another this weekend. I can't wait and neither can the wife. Like a junkie, she's hooked on it now but I always was.
