    Well its a lil 5lb'r smutherd in Mustard and dry rubb (went with a pre-made K.C. rubb (I KNOW I KNOW TREASON BURN EM) but it smells and tastes great and I dont have any homemade reciepes [​IMG] ), if anybody has a homemade rubb reciepe they wouldnt mind sharing I would appreciate it! I plan on kicking it off around 7am (AK time) and given er a good 8 hours of cook time sticking to "Meowey's" cooking method & lots of Hickory then finishing it with Jeff's finishing "sauce" (got all the ingredients today!)
    Wish me luck and I will update with pics as she cooks tommorrow!

  2. Looks good! Can't wait to see the q-view tomorrow!
  3. Hey hobbyzone, noticed you said you have Jeffs sauce recipe. You should give his rub a ty. It's pretty darned tasty. Good looking butt by the way.

    Probably Southflaquer's finishing sauce. Jeff's Rub and Sauce would be a plus. Look into picking those up when you can.

    Good luck, it looks like a fool proof beginning and game plan. Don't bet on the 8 hrs, thats all the added info I can think of for ya. You just never know how long it will take,[​IMG]

    It looks good from here, play around with different rubs, or tweak them till you find the right combo. It's a great feeling when the Q comes out better than you imagined.

    All Right....It came out WonDerFull!!!! Thank You all for you tips and advice and brotherly support!! Best BBQ made in our home ever and I'm only getting started. I want to upgrade smokers, my Brinkman electric is almost impossible to keep a consistent temp. I mainly use the electric to get the wood burning then shut it down, if it dies out I repeat. So any suggestions on a affordable upgrade lemme hear em!
    Anyway here it is..took about 9hrs and the wife made mac and cheese (a recipe we got from BBQ1 in GA and is delicious) I can post the recipe if anybody is interested.
    Again Thanks Everyone




  13. Looks real good. An insulator blanket would help your smoker hold a more constant temperature.
