    At 10:00 am I put it in with my new AMNPTS with hickory pellets and my new Maverick 732 from TJohonson. I used Jeff's recipe for the rub with 1/2 the brown sugar and 1/2 the cayenne. I made some sauce also Jeff's with 1/2 the molasses and 1/2 the sugar because I'm diabetic. I am also getting my car fixed and will have to go picked it up soon. It is now 11:00am and the Maverick is reading 225* and 75 for the IT. Hope this turns into some great pulled pork. My wife will have to watch it while I go to pick up the car. I'll post some pictures when it is done.

    It is 12:25pm and the IT is 118* smoker temp is 212* working it's way back to 225*. I put another load of hickory pellets in the 6" tube which was still smoking a little. The cheap torch I bought to light the AMNPTS is a little hard to light but once I get the torch lit it lights the pellets easily. I did put water in the water pan, it is pretty dry here in Vegas. The Maverick is great! The MES door thermo. reads ~155* when the Maverick reads 225*.

    Bob I'm using a 30" MES analog.

    Here is my first try at posting pictures. I did some beef ribs, tri-tip, and twice smoked potatoes. I did these a few days ago.





    I'll take some of the B. Butt later

    Oh, this is going to be good! Just give it the time it needs to get to pulling temperature and give it a rest. I am anxiously awaiting your finished pictures!

    That's some good looking smoke Tom! Can't ever go wrong with a good smokes tri tip! Little salt pepper garlic and onion powder, maybe some chipotle for a bit of heat, 50/50 mix of cherry and pecan, oh yeah!!!!

    Hope your butt turns out great!

    It is now 3:06pm IT= 144* and smoker = 237* It is still smoking those pellets are great. I think I'll let it get a little higher on the IT, add some apple juice, then foil it, and let it heat up to ~200* (smoker temp. is back at 225 right now. I am getting almost a 20degree swing in temp. as the electric burner kicks on and off)

    Here is a pic of the butt with the juice and about to get the foil cover.

    It is 5:20pm IT = 154* smoker temp. = 226*. It been in there for 7 hours and 20 minutes. I am thinking of turning up the smoker temp. a little closer to 240* so it is done in 3 or 4 more hours.

    IT was 205* at 7:45pm. I took it out and let it rest for 45 minutes. I took a pic and am letting it cool a little because it is still to hot to pull.
