I used a variant of Jeff's rub (same ingredients, slightly-random amounts from the bulk store) to coat an 8 lb pork butt and let it cure for 18 hours (rubbing 3 times, once upon purchase, once after 8 hours and then again before putting into the smoker). This is my second smoke in the MES30 (analog) - my first was ribs (with cherry wood) which were great (albeit a little fatty due to the quality of the rib I bought on discount). This butt was purchased from my regular butcher, trimmed nice and was only $17 (good for Canada pricing) Smoker probe and meat probe are set, apple juice in my make-shift water dish, smoker is foiled-out for easy cleaning and the 6x6 AMNS is providing smoke via hickory wood. It's way too late to be posting, but I need this ready for dinner on Sunday and given the likely 12 hour cook time I'm up at 4 AM - hopefully I'll figure out a better way of doing this in the future (sleep is good). Will post a few more photos as the day goes on. No more opening until at least 8 AM.
