So I picked up a smoker yesterday from sams club, it the 40 in masterbuilt. Figured I would try and break it in with this 7.5 lb butt.

This is what I used for a rub:
2T lawrys southwest sweet & smokey
2T turboado sugar
2T light brown sugar
2t black pepper
2t Cajun seasoning
1t chili powder
1t Cheyenne pepper
1t celery salt
1t ground mustard
1t thyme

Going to put it on around 8 tomorrow morning, then go play some Cornhole for a couple hours.

I will post some updated pics tomorrow when I get back to to the house.

Wish me luck, lol...

Happy smokin',

Looks great Randy, don't forget to season your new smoker before smoking the butt.

You will love the smoker, there are so many things you can make.

Have fun! 
Thanks everyone for the kind words... I can't believe it took me so long to actually get a smoker and start smoking my own... I am going to be hooked, lol...
