So here are a couple shots of what I'm workin' with when I get the pit fired-up in a couple hours ( still waiting for the last wave of bad storms to get outta' here in VA ) -



  

A couple pics of the shoulder I picked up yesterday. And below, a shot of the round-steak chunk somebody brought over this afternoon.

More pics to come as the smoke gets-a-goin'.................

Well, I didn't get the pit fired-up until 3:30 this mornin', and got the shoulder on at about 4am. Here's a pic of the line-up after it was all prepped -



I'll get a pic of the shoulder up after I open the pit for the first time at about 8am.

BTW, Top O' the Mornin'  !

Well, I've finally got a couple shots of this smoke. The shoulder's been on for a little over 4 hours, and is sitting at 150 right now, and the chunk' o round has been on for about an hour. Come on meats, drink up some of that Cherry / Hickory mix........

Looking Pretty Good From Here...
Thanks Mr.Pabst, this thing has been doin' some serious stallin' most of the late morning and early afternoon. If it doesn't start gettin' along, it may be a 15 hour job. Oh well, i just cracked my first cold-one. I think I'll make it...
