    Well, I went shopping for a butt...none available in town worth buying, just loads of ham. Sooooo, stopped at Costco and saw this for the first time ever there. Dollar more a pound than a butt, but, what the hell...snagged one with a nice fat cap. Gave it an overnight rub with my fav pork seasoning mix and in the smoker it went at 11 A.M. along with the AMNS loaded with 3 rows of pecan. Managed to keep 240-250 in the Master Forge gasser on a somewhat windy day. I figured 7 hours for dinner at 6 P.M. Had sweet smelling TBS for about 4 hours. Stuck the Maverick probe in after 2 hours and settled back for the ride. Headed down to the Vets Club for beer thirty at 3 and came back at 4:30 to the fantastic aroma of pork que wafting in the air. Had a little stall at 150 IT....pulled it a half hour later at about 155 IT and let it rest in foil to hit 160 IT. In the meantime, fired off the scalloped potatoes and Bushes honey beans. I gotta tell ya....so well worth the 20 bucks. Some of the best pork I ever ate! Cut like butter, succulent moist meat with just the right amount of chew to it and as a bonus each chop had its own rib to gnaw on. We gourged on 2 chops each and have 4 more for later meals. If you ever see one of these I highly recommend it, you won't be disappointed.

    picked the piggy with the best fat cap


    freshly rubbed with olive oil and my butt rub for the overnight rest


    after overnight rubbin'---dressed for the smoke dance with the bone booties on


    top side pic---anticipation was killing me


    had peeled the back membrane off for max smoke penetration--underside was a thing of beauty IMHO


    had a hard time centering the pic....was loosing my focus...wanted to eat


    cut between the ribs these were about 1 inch thick....absolutely delicious
