  1. [​IMG]  so i decided to do a 10.5# pork butt for free UFC saturday. all was going good on startup, got her rubbed down and smoker ready, i decided to use my little brinkmann red electric for this occasion, as i would be doing other things thruout the day and didnt want to tend to it soo much. i chose to use pecan and mesquite this time. never used pecan, so it was an adventure to say the least. i ran this bad boy for a long long long time....it decided to get super windy[​IMG]...and like a champ i slugged it out with the wind for 12.5hrs..haha dropping temps sometimes to 225 all the way down to 200 at sometimes and struggled to get it back up but i stuck it out as long as i could..then finally said it was time to move it over to the brinkmann 2 burner grill (cuz im ANTI-OVEN)..haha...and finished her off after the dreaded stall for 1.5 hrs...i ended up pulling her when she felt just right, which was at 203*....finally into her igloo wrapped tightly in HD foil. and voila!!!...she was like spaghetti! took me using 2 little forks and pressing quickly on her to make her fall apart!

    now for the Q-View!! (I didnt take any pics before going on because i was rushing to get this thing on before 8am, and i didnt get any during smoking, because we all know the saying,haha)sorry for rambling!!..haha. ENJOI, I KNOW WE DID!



    FINALLY PULLED AT 16 HRS. and IT*203 wrapped in HD and into igloo.

    another angle..haha. spike lee angles! lol.


    thanks for looking guys, it was a long fought battle that ended in sweet victory! take that wind!! hahaa!!
