    It looks like fall is finally hitting in Ohio with a high of 65 today.  Feels like a nice day to sit around the WSM!  Picked up a 15lb prime packer for $2.89 a pound on my way home from work last night.  If you have a Costco near that carries packers, you really can't go wrong!



    Here is the flat separated, simple rub of EVOO and S, P, G:


    Here is the point intended for burnt ends later:


    The WSM is running at 240 with Royal Oak hardwood lump with hickory and cherry.  More to come!

    Looks good so far --- waiting for the money shots[​IMG]  

    The Costco by me doesn't always have whole packers which can make things difficult

    Those look awesome! I'm a big costco meat fan as well.  I like the simple rub.  Always best in my opinion. b

    Couldn't agree on Costco for the price more.  Just hit 162 so we have awhile to go.....

    Here is the point, done well before the flat.  Giving it a rest under foil before the chop for burnt ends!
