    I smoked a 8.5 pounder today. First time in this smoker...$3.99/ pound at Costco.

    I did an injection of Johnny's Au Jus and a rub of paprika, onion, garlic, black and white pepper,cayenne, ancho chili, brown sugar, and salt all slathered up with yellow mustard glue.

    Trimmed it up:

    Rubbed and injected:

    Let it set overnight and put on the smoker at 6:45 this morning:

    Smoked for 11 hours on hickory, cherry and five kingsford brickettes.

    Lots of temp probes:

    I have some recording probes I'll post the temp curves tomorrow...interesting stall from 160-180 for several hours.

    I split the point from the flat and cubed it up:

    Re-seasoned with the rub and tossed with some sauce to make burnt ends:

    Sliced it up and plated:

    Had some pulled pork from a couple weeks ago as well. Smoky, juicy goodness!

    It's a graph from the escort temp recorders...their software, but it is exportable to xcel.

    Another great lookin' que.....I love Costco for their meats & pork...always good IMO. I see their S&P grinders in the background. I just scored a grinder of that pink Himalayan's awesome for the price.

    Hit it with some Johnny's Au Jus, and sucked it down.
