    got a butt and loin few weeks ago put them in Pops Brine for 12 days.

    The kids was stoping by to visit Saturday so the wife wanted Chicken and shrimp on the smoker.

    So I cold smoke in the "Brinkmann Smoke-N-Grill Charcoal Smoker" with AMNPS.

    got the butt for $1.29 LBS , its nice when you can find them on sale.

    Cutting the bone out of the butt.  It was easier to cut out then I thought it would be. Sharp knife helps.

    bone out.  not to bad for the first time .

    here my little smoker with the AMNPS

    [​IMG]

    Put the butts on the top grate and the loin is on the bottom grate

    here I got both smokers going, the offset has chicken and shrimp in it and the small one has the CB and BBB

    for cold smoking. The AMNPS was getting to much air since the bottom of these smokers are wide open.

    I would blow out the flame in the  AMNPS and few minutes later the flame was back. so I grab these totes and

    surrounded the smoker to block the air and it work great after that.

    I moved the loin to the big smoker after 6 hours of cold smoking in the little smoker and hot smoke it to 145 degrees.

    the BBB stayed in the small smoker for 12 hours.
