    Up early to get a pair of butts in the smoker...hoping they get done in time for me to get a batch (my first) of salmon smoked today as well. Here's to a happy/full smoker!

    Rubbed down with my own rub:

    In the Smokin It #3, ready to be fired up:

    Going to smoke them at 260*, using a chunk of cherry and a chunk of hickory.
  3. What lb are they?

    I'm not sure...I didn't look and the package is already in the garbage in the garage. Probably 8-9 lbs apiece though.
  6. You should have started them last night. Gonna take at least 18 hours

    I haven't been monitoring the IT very closely, so I don't know if they are through the stall or not, but they are both about 180* at 6 hours.  Maybe/hopefully, they'll be done in about 5-6 hours.  That will still give me time to throw the salmon in tonight.

    Finished in about 8.5 hours, and now in the cooler for a rest until dinner. The look and smell amazing!

    They turned out amazing, as always...I do really enjoy my Smokin' It #3D.

    I have always done pork exclusively in the CS, and my first smoke in the SI 3D was baby backs. Delicious. 
    It would be great to see you and your exploits over at SI.  If you are there, same name?
