Bought a small pork butt, just under 6 lbs, and a fattie for the weekend smoke. Was a beautiful day yesterday but had to do some mowing and since I had to work again last night I stayed away from the smoker until this morning. Got up to 60 degrees and a slow steady cool rain. Oh well, have to improvise....removed the patio umbrella from the table and placed it up and over the smoker, can't let a little rain spoil a good smoke! Worked perfect. Rolled out the fattie and sprinkled some shredded mozzarella cheese, granulated garlic powder and my rub. Rolled it up and applied the rub to the outside as well. Placed it on the smoker with the rubbed butt and the thin blue smoke of hickory and cherry was making me hungry. Due to the weather, had to keep at it to maintain a steady temperature but finally got it settled in at 225 degrees. Here is a pic of the fattie and I will post one of the butt when it's done.
