    Well this year for the 4th of July, I cooked 2 butts and a brisket on the smoker. I also fired up the Weber and cooked habanero burgers and brats. I posted the before pics of the brisket in the beef section, but got no after pictures. It must have sat in the cooler for 4 hours after cooking! I didn't get before pictures of the pork butts, but here is the after shot...


    The green bottle of fluid was to lubricate the pit boss. The SW Chipotle (Chip-Oat-Lay) is very tasty, although I think it had more heat in its previous incarnation.

    Most of the pork and half the brisket went into the freezer, since there are only 5 of us to eat all the described food, as well as the potato salad and deviled eggs and beans. Burp!

    The brisket was about 15% underdone, and the butts were about the same amount overdone. Close enough for a holiday. If I had been competing, the brisket would have waited another hour.
