    I just put on a small Butt (10 lbs before cooking) and have 8 sides of BB's rubbed up and waitin for tomorrow. This isn't my first smoke but I'm still a noob and probably always will be! Thought I would finally come out of lurking and say hello to everyone.

    I'm currently using a small Traeger pellet smoker on loan from my dad. He likes to have toys but prefers that I do the cooking and since I live across the road...[​IMG]

    I always take a few pictures of my meat in prep and finished product and will post them up as soon as I upload them to photobucket.

    Going to also smoke some corn on the cob and make a little Pig Candy neither of which I have tried before.

    Glad to see you came out of hiding! Post those pics!
    I'm here to testify your first batch of pig candy will NOT be your last! Good stuff Maynard! I have seen pig candy wrapped around ABT's, have not tried it yet, but it's coming. [​IMG]

    Should I cook it ahead of time or try to serve it pretty close to when it comes off the smoker?

    My experience has been that it doesn't last too long after it comes off the smoker. Better make plenty. [​IMG]

    Not real impressed with my Pig Candy, I should have cooked it longer (I like bacon crispy)





    Ribs have been on about 3 hours and corn is about to go on shortly. Will try to get some shots before we tear into them. I had the butt shredded before I realized that I hadn't took a picture.

    Well had about 25 people here last night, I didn't get anymore pictures taken due to a lot of people coming early. The ribs and pulled pork were a big hit. Lots and lots of clean bones. Got a few ribs left for supper tonight, kinda like chili...always better the second day!
