I have had my brinkman gourmet charcoal smoker for just over a month. I decided today would be a good day to do my first boston butt. Last night I rubbed it down with a few spices I threw together. This morning before I threw it onto the smoker I sprayed it with apple juice and applpe cider vinger and then put a coat of Rendezous rub on it. I have pictures but I can't post them on here from my ipad.). It's been raining all day, but we got basketball to watch. The butt has been on for about 4 hours and we are up to 120 on the meat temp. I have not made any mods to my smoker yet, but defentily need to. I will keep every one updated.
