    I got a 5# butt on too. Last night I covered it in yellow mustard, which I heard is good, and added some pork seasoning.

    It got up to 220 pretty good and amazing it's been hovering just above 200 quite easily. I'm using Royal Oak lumps and haven't gone through a whole lot of charcoal yet after about an hour.

    My concern is that I'm using too much wood. I've already gone through like 4 fist size pieces and about 5 chip pieces. I forgot to soak them overnight so I'm soaking them now and putting on the wetter ones.

    I'm thinking about putting only like one fist size piece on at a time or maybe a handful of chips but then I'll have to do it like every 15 minutes!

    Alright already here they are!

    The start of my lunch fatty!


    The finished fatty, boy it was good. Used Old Home sausage, 1 italian and 1 regular, motz cheese and onions.

    The fatty sliced.

    OK, here is the Butt! Happy with the results beins it's my first!

    Here we are at the start, coated with mustard and Southern Comfort Rub!

    About half way through the smoke!

    Out of the smoker, finished up at 200*, wrapped in foil at 165*. Rested in the cooler for an hour.

    Here it is pulled. Added some finishing sauce, served on fresh buns with mahagony sauce, fresh coleslaw and quality kettle chips! A true barbque meal served on paper plates! The crew ate like it was there last meal. Still some left to bag up for more sammies!
