    Schnucks had a sale on labor day that i couldn't pass up !!!

    got 3 butts, one was sliced


    rub honey on the butts before putting the rub on . Hoping that it will have a sweet taste when done .


    in pans on the smoker                                                         wrap at 170./ looks like it time to be put in the cooler (201)


    lots of juice . save it and made some gravy with it. Turn out great!!!




    Made small bags with the food saver. Vacuum sealed and put in freezer for my lunch.

    I made "Jeff's bbq sauce and added 1/2 cup of honey to it. Turn out great !!!!! has a sweet and spices taste to it.

    thanks for looking.

    Great looking food and great score.  I am lucky to be able to stock up this week at $1.29.  A little over a year ago I was paying .99.  Now they are regularly $1.99 unless on sale.  And they tell us there is no inflation?

    Good luck and good smoking.
