Hey all,

   Got a Brinkman Vertical propane smoker for Christmas and broke it in just after the first of the year. In the past three weekends, I have cooked two big pork loins, two big Boston Butts and just finished eating my first Fattie! I am hooked.The pork loins were my first try and a success, but nothing special. I got two Butts at the store and read on here about what to do. Thanks to Meowy (followed his tutorial word for word), I created a masterpiece. Six hours in the smoker, seven in the oven. It was amazing!  Here are a few pics:


Got the smoker set up on the snow covered back porch. This is Georgia, we don't ever have snow on the ground this long!


The two Butts coming out of a few hours in foil, right before I started pulling


Pulling the Butts. I really liked the color of the bark

Today, I decided to do a Breakfast Fatty. We scrambled some eggs, cooked some hashbrowns, and threw in some cheese. Smoked it for three hours and gave it to the wife and in-laws for supper. Needless to say, it got rave reviews!


Getting ready to wrap it up


Not the prettiest weave, but it still tasted good


The finished product


Kinda fell apart, but. . . WOW! I was a hero to everyone

I bet that you are the hero for now. You have done some really good smoking there. So keep it up and also keep the q-view coming to.
Yep, You're Hooked... 

Wish our snow didn't last long...
