    The wife and kid just left for the movies and I just put on a 7 lb pork shoulder that has been sitting overnight with a rub on it. I will post some pictures later.

    Friendly tip for all of you from link:
    When preparing your smoker and adding the hot coals to the smoker box do not do this barefoot! I just steeped on one of the hot coals that missed the box. Always wear shoes!

    That is all for now.

    I just did that a couple of days ago. A little coal fell out of my chimeny starter and I found it in the soft spot between my big toe and ball of my foot.
    OUCH!!!!!!
    Footware of some kind is definatly needed.

    Well, if you never make a mistake, you're not trying hard enough. If you make the same mistake twice, you're not learning [​IMG]

    Look forward to the final report.

    Been barefoot all morning. Worst thing that happened is I spilled some bourbon. Just couldn't get my foot to my mouth so some was wasted [​IMG]

    I take it you are not a fire walker [​IMG]

    And don't shake the ashes around if you're barefooted, and even then wear socks. Been there... done that.

    [​IMG] I'd say to be safe wear leather soled boots, or shoes that you can kick out of if you happen to stand on something so hot as to melt through the soles. I discovered this tip while teaching arc welding.[​IMG]

    My foot has had to make the quick dip in the pool on more than one occasion.

    Good job on the pork BTW
     
  17. Nice q-view. I have a friend who says a real man fries up bacon with no shirt. I will have to tell him that a real barbecue man does it bare footed![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
