    They will run this sale a few times over the next few months. So keep an eye out for them. I check every week for good sales.

    Pick up 3 more butts yesterday, freezer is as full as I can get it.[​IMG]


    4 went in the smoker this morning


    rub all mixed up




    Hickory mixed with coals in the basket for the UDS.



    Going with two racks in the UDS . Bottom grate has one butt in a pan.


    The other 3 butts right on the grate above the pan to catch the juice.


    UDS with the mailbox mod. Got apple pellets going in the AMNPS.


    The kitten in the background guess wanted to see what I was doing.

    Now the 12+ hour wait. Going to stay around 225 to 250. right now there is about 30 degrees

    difference between grates .

    Wow thats a good price! About a week ago the price for Boston's here went up to 1.99lb and they are on sale this week for 1.49lb. I've only got 5 right now but I need to make room in the freezer before the sale is over.

    Got to love how good the UDS smoker holds the temp. Made two small adjustments in the first half hour after putting the butts on this morning . Now 6 hours later still holding the temp.[​IMG]

  14. Thanks again for the tip!  $1.19/pound here in Central IL.  I bought 9 of them over two shopping trips....smoked 4 (along with 3 chickens for the neighbor) and froze the others whole in FoodSaver bags until another weekend smoke.
