    Decided to do a couple of chuckies for dinner (and some left overs [​IMG])

    Seasoned one with Bad Byrons Butt Rub.... Don't really like it on pork, but it is real good on chicken and beef! LOL

    2nd one I rubbed with a dry Jerk rub.... not sure of the name... I think it is "Pain is Good"... lol. I buy a habanero hot sauce from the same company that is awesome!

    5 hrs. into the smoke.... was in the middle of a wicked stall. Stall was about 3 hrs. in, and I needed to get these done for dinner, so I pulled them off the smoker at 156° and applied the "Texas crutch"... lol. Double wrapped in foil with about 1/4 Cup of Killian's Red beer, then tossed them into a 300° oven.

    Took the internal temp to 195°, tossed them into a cooler for 1 hr. to rest. Here is the one with Bad Byrons Butt Rub......

    ..... and here is the one with the Jerk rub, it had a really nice dark bark, very tastey!

    And here is the money shot! [​IMG]

    ..... and to top it all off the wife brought this while I was getting the images ready to post. Fresh made shortbread biscut, fresh made whip cream, and strawberries soaked in rum and sugar..... *drooool* [​IMG]

    All-in-all a good end to a good day!

    Both roast looked just great from slicing, and both had a very nice smoke ring. Congrats on a great meal... all I had today were bits of leftovers. Oh well, some guys have all the luck. It's all good my friend.

    I would send you some left overs, but I would have to probably fight the rest of the family for them! LOL

    Great looking chuckie. I made two myself this weekend but I have not tried them yet. I pulled them and put them right into the freezer. I am with you I don't really like Bad Byrons on pork. Well ribs for sure. I tried a butt this weekend with bad byrons so we will have to see how I like that. It's just too salty for me to be put on ribs.

    I used to use the butt rib alot but the more that I have tried different rubs and I have done a couple of exchanges I haven't bought any and then I looked when I get some stuff for exchanges I see that it's really expensive too. Now for your chuckies look great and I don't think I would try to send any leftovers to your friends. I don't think the family would allow you to send any anyway. Ours takes the food with them if I let them.

    Yeah... to much salt in Byrons for use on pork, but that is also why it is good on chicken and beef... lol. In a pinch I have mixed Byrons with some brown sugar and used that on pork with fairly good success, but I generally prefer to make my own rub for pork.
