Today is my b-day so we got the new smoker cranked up and did the following.

Wicked Beans
1 4lb Butt with Jeff's Rub and sauce
1 4.5lb Butt plain
1 pork loin with Master Q Rub and my wifes mother's bbq sauce
2 small pork roasts with sweet rub from Traeger
Also made the pork finishing sauce as well.
Everything was smoked with apple and some left over hickory and mesquite that was in the hopper.

Looks like some mighty fine grub. And my favorite beer,too. I'm envious! Great Q shots. I'm going back to work on my smoker! I need to have it ready before I drown in my own druel.
Happy Birthday and what a day you had too! Great smoke!

Thanks for the b-days wishes and yes my mother indeed enjoy the bbq. also Thanks for all the great advise!!!

Happy B-day and GREAT JOB!!!

The food looks fantastic! Second time using it, or was this the first smoke?

Your gonna love it, but soon you will want a bigger one.......I know I do, or another one anyway.

Try the traeger pork & poultry rub. I haven't used it for quite a while, but remember it was pretty good.

What are ya gonna smoke today?
This was the first real smoke and the smoker was a bit full after the batch of beans was added :) is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
