  9. Awesome job :)

    As far as it being nerve wracking, it gets easier every time. Pretty soon you'll be cooking it in your sleep :)

    Thanks everyone! Over all party was a hit, next time I need to make more, 6.7# prior to smoking didnt go very far.  Good thing I tried some when I was pulling cause there was not a drop left!!!!
     
  15. Fantastic bark on that bad boy. Man, I am so wanting to smoke a butt. My wife's urging me, it's just finding 10 - 15 hours. lol. Hmmm, may have to cut up the butts to a couple of 4 pounders, and smoke one at a time. Man I'm hungry for some pulled pork now.
     
  16. what kind of smoker do you have?
     
  17. [​IMG]   Beeeeeeeeeyoutiful job!!!!   I am smoking an 8lb butt starting at 4AM Saturday!!!  Ill let you all know how my first butt comes out!
