    Got my offset fired up on Sunday to do a 5 lb. boneless butt and one of the fatties, I picked up while vacationing in the states (JDs not available in Canada) ... also put some ABTs to give me strength ...

    Now, I gotta say ... I have judged a few competitions and none were better than what I pulled Sunday night ....... Hot Dang!!!!

    Had some heat control issues ( still trying to get a working baffle ) and the butt took about 10 hrs.
    Foiled @ 168º and because I use propane in my offset, I just turned it off when it read 196º and left it sitting in the smoker for another hour or hour and a half? ( Not sure had another beer with my neighbor ) didn't towel or put in cooler to rest .... when I came back the therm was 'up' 1º to 197º , which made me grin [​IMG]

    I apologize for not having any pix ... left the camera at home! DOH!!!!
     
  2. Paul, Sounds like a Great day @ the pit to me..How about those fatties pretty good stuff there too!!! Did you roll anything into them or go straight to the smoker...ABT's for dessert (OH YEA)!!!

    Normally I'd be really jealous but,the pig roast at work makes up for it.
    Especially when I'm one of the two cutting it up! Yum Yum!

    Just put them straight in ... lots of seasoning in them. Can't wait to make my own, using bulk garlic sausage with cheese and onions rolled into it.

    Congrats on your smoking adventure. Sounds like it was a plan that came together.
