    Smoking 135 lbs of butt for pulled pork for a church event tomorrow. Took the day off from work so I could do this. plan on also getting some mowing done. might even take the christmas lights down. (yes they are still up..lol)

    This is all of them getting ready for a rub down. There are 2 per pack here so I have 20 in all. Im using McCormicks Sweet and smokey rub. I love this stuff. Using a mix of maple, pecan, hickory, and whatever else I have laying around here.



    Here they are all on the smoker at 9am.



    Thin blue and chugging along at 235*.



    I'll keep more pictures coming throughout the day.

    Enjoy!

    Dang Boone! You better be careful or people will start showing up for a revival at your house.
    Great looking rig too! Looking forward to some more action shots.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    How about some more pics?? 1:00pm and about 145ish* on most of them.

    spraying them down every hour with a mix of Sprite and Apple juice.






    more to come later.
    Will also be making about 6 batches of dutches bean, and Jeff sauce later this evening. Going to reheat the pork, smoke the beans and sauce in the morning.

    MistaBob - I have taste tested a few and they ARE delicious!!
    Twistertail - Yes, I love that sweet and smokey rub.


    Ok, Here are a few more, but they still look about the same. anyway.

    Going into the foil.


    Foiled


    The temperatures are all over the place with them. With being so many I kinda expected that. So now I just wait.

    Be back later.

    is that furnace sealer you've got on the doors? I was thinking about buying some of that for my home made rig, does it work well for you?

    Yep, sure is. Tt worked really good when i could get them to stay on. The high heat caulk/glue didn't want to stick real well. So I used self tapping screws and it holds just fine now. [​IMG]

    I hope the tires on that rig are pressurized right with all that goodness on there. Wouldn't want it tipping over. [​IMG]
