    Here's a couple shots of my first butt. Done without much direction, but still turned out pretty darn good. After reading on here for a few days, I can't wait to try another one!

    Simple salt, pepper, brown sugar rub. Hickory smoked. Oven finished. Absolute minimalist approach by a true rookie.

    I snuck a little taste off there before I remembered to take a picture. The wife has promised not to leave me just yet. [​IMG]

    Nice! Minimialist is good. PLENTY of time for tweaking once the basic process is nailed :{) I applaud your methods, sir! <Clap clap!>

    Thanks folks. Already planning one for this weekend. Trying to decide on a rub I like. Most of the popular ones seem to have paprika in them. For some reason, and I don't know why, I just don't like the stuff.

    Unfortunately, I've already looked int he ABT forum and am having a go at that right this minute.
