    It's kind of a cleanup thing Terry..

    I had two bags of almost gone charcoal...RO red and Kingsford blue.

    Also several small bags of chunks and chips.

    Added it all together with the local pecan.

    It's looking and smelling good on the back porch today..

    Gonna start some sausage making today too.

    A small town indepedent grocery.

    I been looking for one to get bellies from as the one I been using burnt down.

    The guy in the meat dept said that butts go on sale once in awhile...not regular.

    He got out the case and it was EXCEL so I got about 40 pounds.   http://www.excelfreshmeats.com/index.php

    Gonna start the sausage making today..

    A $1.45 a pound  [​IMG]?   That's right around 1/2 what we pay for pork butt, That's a steal, I'd load up as well. Congrats on the great find on cheap meat.
