    Smoked my first Boston Butt and it was great.  I pulled it and used the finishing sauce from the site, yum!  I had issues keeping the temps down so a few parts were a little chewy, but it tasted just fine.


    I also smoked some cabbage and it was tangy goodness.  I covered it in a mixture of Italian dressing, balsamic vinegar, and Louisiana hot sauce.  Needless to say I also threw a piece of bacon on top for good measure.  I wrapped it in foil for about 4 hours and opened it up to crisp the bacon for 1.  Once it was finished I threw some on a hot dog with mustard, it was outstanding.

  4. Bark looks awesome. Smoked cabbage huh? Never would have thought of that.

    This 4th of July, take time to remember how and why we celebrate. It's not just a day to party.

  6. Yum!  I'd kill to get a bark like that.  Did you foil before you pulled?

    No foil on this one. I sprayed apple juice every time I added coals (probably 7 or 8 times) and mopped it once with an Italian dressing/hot sauce mixture.
