    Here is the setting.

    This is the view from my patio where I sit every night.

    Here is the setup.

    The beer for tonight. Usually drink Bud Light, but love this for a treat.

    The equipment, MES 2 Taylors and my new remote Smart BBQ from Walmart. Boy, it can't get any easier. Talk about being spoiled.

    Rubbed with brown sugar, garlic powder and lemon pepper.

    In the smoker with full water pan, drip pan with some water, beef base for flavoring, and onions for the liquid gold.

    The plan: Using hickory chunks, and s samll piece of Mesquite lump as needed. Take the temp to 165" put in the drip pan covered with foil and lower smoker to 190' and go to bed. In the am, just pull away.

    The journey is off and running. Meat started at 40" and after 40 minutes it is now up to 60".

    As always wish me luck and thanks for watching. More to come, so stay tuned.

    Coming out.

    [​IMG]

    This am after foiling all night.

    [​IMG]

    Same here.

    [​IMG]

    Mmm, pan drippings.

    [​IMG]
    Bone jumped out at me.

    [​IMG]

    During the pull.

    Got about 1 1/2 cups drippings that tasted good from the onions and beef base. After pulling I weighed it at 4 1/2 pounds. Added the drippings, put in zip locks, got 15 and in the freezer. Wife couldn't quit nibbling while she packaged.

    That's all folks, thanks for watching.

    Being a new to the forum, after having purchased a new Masterbuilt electric smoker from Sam's, having used same with limited results, turned to others herein who owned the same product and possessed knowledge with smoked meats. Ron, the Master of the Pit called and talked me thru the process of how to correctly prepare and cook a pork butt. My graditutde to him and others who have welcomed me. I intend to put the old Master's instructions to the test later this week. Wish me luck, because I will need it....HB

    Thanks, you are welcome, Don, you are well on your way my friend. You got my phone number, just call when you start next one.

    That's what this site is all about, helping others.

    Yes, I am having too much fun.

    I just got forced to come in as the storm approached. It lasted 5 minutes and I'm going back out.

    Yes he can be a jackass at times, like when it thundered a few minutes ago, on my lap.

    Trying to do some pastrami as I type.
