  1. 4am.......Roll over and smack the Butt...She then kicks me OUT of bed![​IMG]

    and I get the"other" Butt ready

    more to come...
  2. Hour into the smoke....Im having a dang of a time with temp....I setup the smoker a little different thismorning....half due to DARKNESS...and other half....well im not sure....It had NOTHING to do with the BEER I had less than 1-5-3-7...hours ago!

    Wants to spike way up to 268....I had to shut the damper all the way on the fire box...and almost all the way on the stack to get her to come down....I just went out and opened the vent a tad...she is now down to I hope she straightens out....

    leave the stack OPEN, AT ALL TIMES 100%. A butt can take 265, but it don't need stale nasty smoke.[​IMG]

    put a couple of them on at 5 am myself! gonna add fatties, beans amd chickens later in the day. Dinner is to be served at 5:30-6 pm, somewhere in there anyways.[​IMG]

    Maybe she wouldnt have been so cold if she knew you had another butt to turn to. Oh yeah, and a bottle of rum.

    Good lookin butt. Havent done a butt in along time. Mastered the brisket thing instead.
