    My son Trevor (Jr. Pitmaster) and I will be smoking a couple of pork butts tomorrow for pulled pork! 

    Be sure to check out our q-view tomorrow evening.  Here is a sample: a 7 pounder rubbed down before wrapping and refrigerating!

    Six gun and Bill,

    Your plans sound great!  Looking forward to the Q-view. 

    I'm smoking a couple of fatties on Sunday using some mozzarella that I smoked a few weeks ago. I tasted the mozzarella today and it was great. Should be delicious inside a fatty.

    I want to smoke a PR myself, but don't have one in the freezer, and Mrs. Red has looked in 3 area meat departments to no avail.  I may have to make a road trip to Tulsa tomorrow...
    Bill, I look forward to Trevor's Qview!  I think it's very cool that he's getting into this pastime with you.  Makes me nostalgic for when my sons were that age.

    Here ya go ,Sixgun. -

    Three Briskets for the gang... about 18hrs. cooking time. What will I do , you ask...

    Well first I plan to start approx. 6a.m. , open the Cryo-paks and rinse the meat.  Dry it , season with , S/P , O, G ,Wrapped in Butcher paper and taken out to the Pre-heated Smoker and placed in a 225* environment to soak-up smoke for 1 hr. Then I will insert the Mavericks and close for 6 hrs. I feel the one on the Left will have the amt. of Smoke the Wife's Folks want- wrap it and finish there in the Smoker ( might as well use those BTU's).

    I'll leave them in until they reach 200* IMT. Now I have only two Mavericks , so I'll probe the bigger one in the center last to track it's temp. till done. The other 2 will have been pulled by then, (unless they have a heck of a stall).

    I should have a lot of shots as Trish volunteered to take Q-view... We'll see.

    Meanwhile as it all cooks... I'll make my Table Sauce and then a batch of Fajita Sop(marinade for the less informed) and my Pico-de-Gallo.

    I'll have visitors by all day and the Smoke will tempt some to stop by and see what's up. By evening I will have trapped(Oops,I mean) invited some one to talk the night away , as I feed the Smoker and let the love develop in the meat. Using Hickory and maybe some Cherry , NO, Apple , the Cherry is for my Ribs next cook .

    Keep tuned , it's almost showtime...[​IMG]  Have fun and...

    So Sunday night's dinner with friends went over great.  I served a couple of fatties filled with sauteed mushrooms, shallots, spinach, and smoked mozzarella. Along with it some smoked deviled eggs, mashed yukon golds with caramelized onions, and green salad.  Dessert was a raspberry fruit crisp with ice cream.  I'm starting to develop a little confidence as a smoker!!  Our friends demanded to take home leftover fatty.  There is no better compliment!       

    Couldn't have done it without this forum. Thanks all you guys and girls!!  Hope everyone has a great week!


  14. I will get pics next time, forgot
