    This butt was planned for a Saturday smoke, but the rain got in the way, had church and more rain on Sunday, so its on the smoker today!


    injected, soaked, and now rubbed (actually rubbed on Saturday!)


    prepping the brinkman and getting the fire started.


    Mmmmmm....nothing like a long hot soak in the Thin Blue Smoke...
    While Mr. Butt enjoys a smoke, I will be prepping the yard bird and some ABT's. Stay tuned - there's more to come...

    Well it looks like your off to a good start an all. I always score my butts it holds the rub alot better and lets it get into the meat better I think.

    qview of getting the chicken ready...

    I start by separating the qtrs into thighs and legs, then trim up the thighs...



    once trimmed, season the inside, the outside and repeat.


    These will go on in a few hours...

    I agree...I think it also helps the fat render...helps with that "self-basting".
