    Decided yesterday to smoke up a butt for today to eat on while watching college basketball all day. She went for 10 hours at 250 with pecan wood and my own dry rub.

    Nice bark!

    How did it taste?

    As good as I hoped. Ive always cooked on a wood burner but recently converted a drum style into electric and I must say, it is nice not to have to babysit it. I put it on at 11 last night with a full pan of pecan chips and a water pan and took her off at 9:30 this morning. I wrapped and let it rest for an hour before pulling it. It fell apart off the bone. I started rubbing all of my meat with peanut oil before applying rub and it seems to help it hold its juice and helps form a crispier bark.

    My local butcher orders them and halfs them into smaller packs for around $6-$8 each. Will feed around 6-8 people. Perfect for a family size.
