First Smoke w/Qview

  1. This is my first attempt at smoking meat.  I smoked two butts Sunday and took one to the in-laws for Memorial Day.  The other we've eaten on since.  While I made a few mistakes, mostly due to poor planning, it turned out great.  I used Meowey's method (thanks Meowey) and used a store bought rub.  As an experiment, I used spicy brown mustard and rub on one and just rub on the other.  Next time, I will do a better job of planning and I will try a homemade rub (probably Jeff's).   I took pics right before foiling and here is the best one.  I didn't think to take pics after pulling.  Smoker is Char Griller Duo w/SFB, flipped fire grate and extended chimney.

    I also started my first butts with meoweys method. Tried & proven. Too bad you didn't get the money shot? Looks great though. Another thing you might try is Soflaquer's finishing sauce. It takes PP up another level!!

  7. Thanks guys.  I'm really looking forward to the next smoke.  Oh, I forgot to mention that I spritzed with 3:1 apple juice and Bacardi gold every hour or so.  It just so happened that I had just enough Bacardi to make the mop.  Although, I was probably a little too stingy with the mop. (Only give it 2-4 spritzes per side.)  I will be more generous next time.

    Awesome Butts
  9. The apple juice and Bacardi's give the butts a nice sheen. Bet you and the butcher will be on a first name basis by the end of the summer.
