The anticipation has been killing me. I've been trying to get my GMG Jim Bowie dialed in for a couple of weeks now. I have been holding off on doing any long smokes until I got a better feel for things. I've also been holding off on getting the ThermoPro TP20 until Prime Days on Amazon. (Only 3-1/2 more days to go for the TP20 and 7-1/2 days for the TP18!) Anyways, we snagged a deal on butts for $1.19/lb (twin pack). One butt is 9.5lbs, the other is 6.5lbs. So, in goes the big butt! It's hard to tell from the pictures, but this is one massive hunk of hog. I've never smoked one this big, so I have no idea how long it is going to take. I usually start them around midnight for a late lunch the following day. Rubbed and ready: And here it is on the rack at 225° at 9:00pm. I don't foil at the stall. I just let it keep chuggin' away until it hits 205°. Fingers crossed that it makes for a great lunch tomorrow instead of a late snack!
