Good news - I am smoking some sides (head of cabbage and some potatoes) that I am going to use tomorrow with some smoked 2" thick boneless pork chops. I saw a great price on pork butts at Costco and could not pass it up. It is just over 11lbs. I am using the AMNPS with Pitmaster's Blend (hickory, cherry, maple). Just reloaded it. This will go low and slow overnight. Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Cajun Foreplay dry rub. Wish me luck. Q View......sorry for the flash as it was 11PM afterall. 1 hour and the sides will be complete. Lighting my AMNPS is a breeze with a cigar torch lighter and the Fire Dragon! Happy national bourbon day! Sipping on Maker's Mark.
