    My new Rec Tec arrives tomorrow, so in preparation I applied rub to a seven pound butt, wrapped it in plastic, and put it in the fridge. I made one mistake, I only put mustard on one side of the butt! Hopefully that won't be a problem. The rub stuck to the "dry" side just fine. Will keep you posted as this one progresses.

    Sounds like your ready for some fun!

    I don't bother with mustard anymore, the rub will stick to the meat just fine without it.

    Success! After a 12 hour smoke I can't believe how good it came out. Here's the butt after three hours before I wrapped it:

    And here's the final result:

    Amazing smoky flavor, tender and juicy.
