    13 hours...not too bad for such a large hunk-o'-meat. I know someone that's gonna be eatin' good today. Question is....will you ever let that smoker cool down other than for cheese??? I think not...but then again, I probably wouldn't either given the ability. Smoke on my friend...smoke on.

    This is a good thread for the pellets.

    Pork Rind Pellets

    I dry mine in the oven at the lowest setting. They will get very hard and almost look like plastic. when you go to fry them if you have a way to keep them held under the oil, it will work out better when frying. They will expand almost 5X their starting size. So do small batches, they cook fast. I throw some seasoning on them when they come out of the oil. Pretty much up to you on that, I use premade cajun spice mixes..
  5. Ok just pulled it off. IT was 201* smoker temp was 229*  I wrapped it in 2 layers of foil & 2 towels. I then put a blanket in a cooler & put the bundle on top of it. I put another blanket on top of everything & closed the cooler. Here's what it looked like 3.7694251 seconds before I pulled out the probe & snatched it out of the smoker.

    I will let it rest at least an hour & 15 minutes then pull it. Can't wait! Gonna get some nuts ready to smoke while I'm waiting [​IMG]

    Here it is after taking it out from between the 2 blankets & unwrapping it from the 2 towels.

    After pulling. It pulled really easy...

    My wife would think I lost it if I tried to do the marathon smoke you have done. I am a bit jealous.........

    Great looking pork.....
  15. Thanks - & I'm really enjoying the experience [​IMG]
  16. Looks absolutely great.... If you have not tried Chef Jimmy J's finishing sauce (if you like stuuf like that) you are doing yourself an injustice! I did 30lbs of pork butts for a Christmas party and they couldn't stop eating and they were even putting it directly on after the meat was already tossed in it......

    Smoke it if you got it !!!!!!

  17. Thank you!

    Now I'm having a hard time trying to decide what to do, pork butt, or top round roast... Guess I'll have to do both!!!

    That looks absolutely wonderful. The color was spot on IMO.
  20. Go for it - you won't regret it! I just picked up a pork butt but I am gonna try out some buckboard bacon with it. I would have gotten another picnic for pulled pork but they didn't have any left. The top round turned out great with the simple SPOG rub.
    Thanks Mike! The flavor was perfect - well worth the wait [​IMG]
