Ok i know it is the oldest of jokes around here but we have been making jokes all day here about my smokin butt. This is my second meal on the Traeger. Used jeffs directions of smoking first then covering in a foil pan then separating the broth. Used "Butt Rub" for something different so that our butt didn't taste like our ribs which we did with jeff's rub. REALLY SPECTACULAR! and the mrs. made home made buttermilk cornbread from a recipe on allrecipies that had 5000 great ratings. it was out of this world.
