I am going to smoke a small butt in the morning for pulled pork sandwiches. I am going to follow the classic recipe that most of you senior smokers use. When I unwrapped the meat I found one of those pop -ups stuck into it. Has anyone ever tried this when smoking. I rubbed it down with mustard first. I then covered it with a rub in hopes of achieving the classic bark. In the fridge and we will see ya all in the morning. I'll start the coffee.
