    WD,
    It is a 'small' block GOSM and the foil was my rigged up rain hood as it was sprinkling that day. The brick served as the stand for my therms. Yup, that's my water pan and it is full of water and drippings. Said wicked beans I did not stir and they still turned out delicious. I may have to try stirring them next time. [​IMG]

    As for the pics, I use imageshack.us, it is super easy to upload your pics then I just copy the link into my post and it appears! It is the best way for me as I am certainly no puter whiz. As far as descriptions, you just put them in before or after the link you copied and pasted and you've got yer label!

    Hope that helps my brotha! We're looking forward to your entry!

    once your pics are on photobucket, click on the [IMG ] code for forums (it automatically copies it when you click on it) then paste that IMG code into your post. You can put a space between your pics for better results and type a description above the IMG code. Good Luck all!

    Let me start by saying that I did not intend to enter a second time, but this is my greatest smoke ever and I am awfully proud of it.

    It all began innocently enough with the wife saying that pulled pork sounded pretty good. Now this usually means I pick up a bucket of Loyds pulled pork from Wal-mart because mine absolutely and completely suck. But I remembered reading a tutorial from Jeff in a newsletter a couple years ago about a pull that he screwed up, but ended up being his best. So I thought "I can screw stuff up!" and decided to give it a shot.

    I bought a 8.88 pound shoulder with the bone in. I believe that this has both the picnic and Boston cuts in it. I jumped on the site and read Jeff's advice on how to cook this thing. I quickly realized that at 9 pounds, this thing would take over 12 hours to smoke. So at 10:30 that night I started gathering my ingredients. Yellow mustard and Jeff's famous rub.

    By 11:15 the smoker was hot and the shoulder rubbed down. I threw it on with 4 large chunks of hickory and set an alarm for 3:30 so I could check the wood. The smoker was running at 228 degrees (I think I am getting the hang of how to use the little door to control the temp)

    I overslept til 6:30 that morning. I ran out to check the food. It had reached 155 degrees so I double wrapped it in foil and put it back on. The smoker was still chugging along at 224 at that point.

    I kept the meat on until 3 pm that day. So a total of 15 1/2 hours on the smoker. I took it out at 200 degrees and set it in a cold oven to sit for 2 hours. After two hours I took it out and stuck a fork in it and gave a little pull. It almost collapsed into a heap of juicy beautiful pork! A couple of quick pulls and the once proud slab of meat was reduced down to a large bowl full of shredded deliciousness!

    We topped it off with some BBQ sauce, corn on the cob, and baked beans. If I die tonight, the surgeon will need to remove the smile from my face so the funneral seems less awkward!

    The first pic is the 9 pounds of meat just waiting to be rubbed down.

    Pic 2 is the meat with the rub

    Third pic is the smoker and the elusive thin blue smoke.

    Fourth pic is the meat after 15 1/2 hours with a large serving fork in it

    Fifth pic is half the meat shredded.

    Sorry I don't have a picture of the sandwich and sides, but the plates were cleaned faster than a camera shutter is capable of working!
