    Put a 5lber on the MES tonight so I can eat it for lunch tomorrow and the next couple days. Hickory and cherry in the smoke box, never thought it would smell as good as it does together. Using my RediChek for the first time too, it's holding steady right now.

    The mes and redi check means a good night sleep.

    Looking forward to finished pics.

    True, but being a 5lber I'm assuming it will be done in the middle of the night.  And I'm going to half to put the food probe in the butt sometime tonight.

    Put the food probe in now.

    I am up 2-3 times a night.  I still consider it a good night sleep.   LOL

    Well it hit 165 at 11:30 pm, I wrapped and I woke up to the alarm set at 195 around 1:35 am. Let it rest for an hour, woke back up and pulled it and bagged it in 5 sandwich size bags for five lunches.
    Lunch, had one with just finishing sauce. The one pictured has Sticky Fingers Bbq. I had no regular buns so I threw it on a hotdog bun, looks odd buy tastes good! The pork is really moist, added finishing sauce while heating it up.

    It's getting better with age. Little late night snack.
