Hi there and welcome!As a new member and relatively new smoker I thought it would be cool to see what folks favorite meat to smoke is.
So, whatcha got?
Costco is where I get my prime brisket. Really an excellent price and tremendous quality. But I still prefer a butt.Cost aside, and I can get a Prime whole packer style brisket at Costco for $3.49 a pound in IL, I love doing brisket. Spare ribs are great, but they are easy IMHO. People around here are impressed by brisket and I like the challenge an offset stick burner.
I haven't delved in to the butt yet. Sorry...not trying to be funny here. I tend to gravitate to Texas style, but I think pulled pork from a butt would be popular around here.Costco is where I get my prime brisket. Really an excellent price and tremendous quality. But I still prefer a butt.

Thanks for the welcome!Hi there and welcome!
I do my Pork Butts (pulled pork) very Texas style. I season with Salt, Pepper, Onion, Garlic, and Paprika... no sugar. Very Texas Style seasoning. Throw in a little chili powder and a touch of ground cumin and that will be like Tex-Mex style.
Also I smoke the whole time unwrapped. The flavor on unwrapped brisket and pork butts gives me what I feel is a very Texas style bbq flavor ( I live in TX).
Finally I split the pork butts from the bottom (meat side not fat side) cutting upward until I hit the bone but the whole thing is still intact. This allows me to kind of butter fly the whole thing and season in there and spread out some for smoking. This allows for more smoke penetration deeper and into more meat, more surface area for bark, and more seasoning for that meat that normally gets none... all to me add very Texas style bbq flavor :)
