    Coworker and I decided to smoke a couple of butts. We went to the local Piggly Wiggly and picked up a couple of small ones. $1.59/lb with some pre applied rub ....but they were $2.09 without the rub.

    Threw a little mystery rub on 'em, warmed up the Holland and we were ready to GO!

    Left them on 15-20 minutes per side and then added water to the drip pan. Let them cook undisturbed for an hour and a half with water in the pan. At this point I let the water out of the pan and let the smoke work.

    About 3 hours into the ordeal I ran to the store to get some buns and when I get home to check the butts something is missing

    My coworker came by grabbed the smaller butt...foiled it and took off!! I check the larger was at 190 so I foiled it, toweled it, and threw it in the cooler for an hour. By that time I was sooo hungry I pulled it and began to chop before I realized I needed to take a pic . Sooo I stopped, washed up, took a pic and ATE!!! Quite good!

    Even had leftovers for lunch sammies!
