    Thought I would share some pics and post as I go. I soaked these for 24 hrs in Stubbs pork marinade while hitting with a meat tenderizer a cpl times to help get marinade down into the meat. Then I put a dry rub (Everglades Rub), I am using hickory at 225/235 temp give or take. I have a Sam Adams octoberfest beer with equal water in the pan and my pizza stone as a heat deflector. I am thinking these will make some mighty fine pulled pork come dinner time will keep pics a coming!

  2. It should be good. Tell us all about it. What are you using for a rub and what temp are you smoking at? It looks like a Kamado you are using.

    Happy smoken.
