    Busy here tonight. I am doing this for a friend of mine that loved some samples I gave him. I called my butcher friend today to see how he was doing with his new MES. He said he has been to busy to light it up. Huh? Never too busy to smoke. After talking a bit I asked what the prices were on pork butts and he says $1.77 with the card or $2.29 without. He said how big? I said I need 2 about 7 pounds. He said I'll have 2 for you in the back when you get here. He was gone already but had them for me. I had no idea what the price was going to be.

    In the smoker below the canadian bacon.

    I will take this to at least 160' I hope, and then put it in the pan foiled overnight, a guy has to get some sleep.[​IMG]

    Thanks for watching, more to come,

    Dang, super price! What's he charge you for henways?
     
  5. £0.6 a pound !!
    wow - that's some butcher :)
    Feed the man whatever he wants lol

    over here pork shoulder has now become more expensive than boned leg joints - makes no sense to me. But I'm now using leg rather than shoulder, go figure.
    for the record that's at $3 a pound. And that's the cheapest pork around.

    They locked me in the chat room last night and never got to post the final pics.[​IMG]

    Here they are:



    Just before foiling.


    This is right before pulling. Didn't need to do anything but tear it with a big BBQ fork. I'm sure my friend will be happy, got a little over 5 pounds from a 7 pounder. Pretty good yeild. Had about a pint of juice and just added it to the bag for reheating.

    Thanks for watching.

    Made me feel good.
