    Since today is my "Saturday", I decided to throw an almost 9 lb pork butt on for my second smoke on the new Lang 48 Patio.  Decided to try something new and inject.  Late last night I injected (I'm familiar w/ the 4/140 rule but made sure everything was a clean as possible) w/ peach nectar, white vinegar, salt and sugar and threw it back in the fridge to rest.  This morning I woke up a little late but fired up the pit w/ pecan wood (smoking between 225-250), pulled the butt out and rubbed it down w/ my pork rub.  The combination of the injection w/ the rub smelled amazing going in.

    Here's the butt all rubbed down waiting for the pit to come up to temp

    Trying out using a pan w/ the butt on a rack as well.  Also made up a couple of fatties last night to throw in for breakfast.

     Stay tuned, there's more to follow.......

    Sorry guys for posting the final pics late, I was fighting a severe migraine yesterday and had some appointments today for an upcoming deployment.  Everything turned out great though even though I had to throw the butt in the oven at 275 after I foiled it because of the migraine.

    The butt just before foiling

    The butt after coming out. Turned the oven off when it hit an IT of 201, held it there for an hour and the IT rose to 208.

    Finally all pulled.  The bone came out nice and clean, had a great smoke ring and had a really great flavor.  I also cut a few slices off the money muscle but they came out a little mushy.  If I do that again I'll be pulling the butt at an IT of 195 and letting the rest rest for a a few hours.  Added a little vinegar sauce on the side, had a sandwich, popped a few Excedrin and called it an early night.
