Some very dear friends, really like family to us, asked me if I would smoke a couple of butts for them for this weekend. It is his parents 50th wedding anniversary. They knew that I was going to be out of town and said that they would just cook them in crock pots. There's just simply no comparison and I certainly wanted to do what I could for them on such a special day. So I smoked them and they will come get them tomorrow.

Pretty much a straight forward smoke, nothing special. Coarse salt, fresh ground pepper, and a good coating of rub.

So 5:00am off to the offset where I had some hickory and white oak coals ready with the temp running right around 230℉. Here's a picture after about 5 hours.

Around the 11th hour, internal temp was hitting around 205℉ so time to pull and rest.

Bones came out clean.

Got it all pulled and into the refrigerator. They requested no sauce as they'll put it on the side.

Thank you all. This is truly a special occasion and the rest of the story is that the father has Parkinson's. He's still mostly functional, but we can all see the decline in his physical abilities. What an honor and privilege it is to be able do something for them.

Sandy, it means a lot to me to just be able to do something, however insignificant in the grand scheme of things it may be. 50 years of marriage is a long time in today's world, almost unheard of anymore. And with his physical limitations, it makes it that much more meaningful.
I know you took a lot of pride in doing that for dear friends.
Yes Colin, I try very hard to please my family and friends with my cooking. Sometimes I fail miserably.
