Well, it's been a busy few weeks but we're finally settled in the new townhouse and I have time on my hands. Soaked an 8lb butt for two days in a mixture of apple juice and assorted spices. It was rubbed down overnight with a dry rub recipe I found online (we'll see how it works). I rigged up an umbrella over the smoker since it's finally raining and things are going well. Once the butt hit 160 degrees I wrapped it in foil and put it back on there. We're now 7 hours into the smoke and it's at 173 degrees F. A little while longer, and she'll be wrapped in a towel and sitting. I just made a batch of finishing sauce and I'm ready. It's been a good day! Q-view coming soon.
