First butt (and first post)

  1. Figured i woudl jump in with both feet!

    New to smoking but definitely not to grilling.

    Working with a Kamado Joe that i bought last year, i decided that my fathers day present to myself would be an injection kit and the heat deflector for the Kamado so that i could start smoking.

    While walking around Sam's yesterday i got a wild hair to smoke a butt!

    14lbs pre cooked for both of them.

    Injected them about 1 hour prior to smoking and did the rub with a recipe i blatantly stole from Big Bob Gibson here in town.

    Put them on the Kamado Joe last night at about 930 with some apple chips providing the smoke.

    Monitored them periodically until about 1am when i went to bed. Temp was holding steady at 250 degrees

    Got up at 0630 this morning and it was still at 250 (I love that thing).....

    My first thought was that i had burned them, but then i remembered what many people here have said about the brown sugar carmelizing and turning black and sure enough....inside looks great with the internal temp at 200

    Have them foil wrapped and sitting in the cooler before i pull them and have them ready for lunch today.

    Here are a couple of pics.

    Please feel free to critique and let me know any improvements i could make.
