    Well, I am taking the plunge and trying my 1st Pork Butt. Got it at Costco for $1.27 per pound. Did the yellow mustard and rub thing, refrigerated overnight. I also figured as long as I have a 12-hour smoke going, why not try some ABTs and throw on a fatty!

    I tried to core the jalapeños but they kept cracking so I split them. I fried up some bacon and mixed it in with the cream cheese - never can have too much bacon! I think I'll invest in a corer.

    The fatty is a naked JD Hot.

    Here they are, in all their glory!
    I'll post pictures of the finished product.

    Good eyes, MossyMo! I ran out of bacon cream cheese filling! [​IMG]

    Maybe wifey can go fetch more cream cheese; I still have 15 jalapeño halves... [​IMG]

    Oh, man. Snuck a couple of ABTs off the top grate while misting apple juice over the pork butt on the bottom grate. Them ABTs is good! They need to go a little longer, however, as the bacon is not quite done enough.

    Pictures coming soon!

    ABTs are done! I wonder why there were only thirty. As MossyMO pointed out, I started with 35! [​IMG]

    Looks good Bill. Those ABTs are awsome. Gotta love them.

    I always split my ABTs down the middle and just lay a piece of partially cooked bacon on top. Easier to get all the seeds and stuff out.

    I'm glad to see I'm not alone. I take pics like you do. My wife looks at me funny. Keep it up!

    Finally, the Grand Finale. I was so excited, I forgot the Q-View before I pulled it!

    Here is the pork butt ready for the sauce. And like you, BA_LoKo, my wife thinks I am nuts for having tongs in one hand and a camera in the other.

    Special thanks to DeejayDebi - I used your guide as a baseline. Didn't do the towel method but it still turned out great.

    Cheers!

    - Bill
