    Oh yeah - I've not made that recipe in a good while! Thanks for the reminder. That KB sauce alone is super good, and something I've used on chicken wings and other items as well as the pork.

    That cook turned out perfect. Congrats! Love the smoke ring and the bark. I know smoke rings don't really mean anything, but I still think they're pretty. You've got a lot of good eats ahead.

    One of these times, Steve Raichlen's Korean Pork Butt made with gochujang. jfmorris turned me on to that recipe. It's delicious, served on those Asian steamed buns with a Vietnamese slaw on the side. (the recipe says noodle but it eats like a slaw since its made from spiralized veggies).

    A bowl of pulled pork. Tasty pulled pork, I might add.

    And my plate - air fried green beans on the left. Top right is Georgia style BBQ saue on my pulled pork butt. Bottom right is my Eastern NC Vinegar sauce.

    I've lived about half my life in eastern NC and half in GA so I appreciate both styles. Gotta say though, if I can hit the taste of the memories of the NC pig pickins from about age 15-16 - that's the winner.

    Oh, you hand stacked them huh? I’m too damn lazy for that. 🥸

    Panhead John I think I would have gotten about 12-13 out a full pan of KBB the way I hand stack them. I got 9.5 hours from lighting on this one - 8 hours of cooking. (Took me way longer to trim than expected. Wouldn't have if I had started with the right knife but that's another thread.)

    A full load of Kingsford on the Bronco, would have probably lasted 10 hours or so if lit properly. For a long cook I fill the basket and use 1 wax starter cube off to the side. Good job on the recovery.

    Oh, the reason I ran out of charcoal is that Embers burns much faster than Kingsford Blue Bag. About 2/3 of my pan was Kingsford, the rest Embers. Some of the Kingsford was still going but all of the Embers was gone. I think if it had been all KBB, I would have been golden.

    But $15 for 40 pounds of Embers made me think I should give it a try. Would have worked fine for the burgers and chickens I did but seems KBB is better on the long burns.

    Well, I ran out of charcoal at about 1 pm (while the wife and I were away getting cat littler and cat food.) So about 1:30 I notice the low temps. The Butt had just come out of the stall and got up to 167 before the fire went out.

    I switched over to the Weber Spirit to finish the cook. With a bit of fiddling I was able to get the Weber to hold a pretty consistent 250 - much to my surprise. I was doing some bike maintenance so I was right there and able to nudge the gas up or down a bit as needed.

    Finally, decided to crutch at 3:15 and about 177 degree on the butt. Just hit 201 and will be pull the meat as soon as I hit post.

    Won't the bike do better things for your butt than the smoker? Wait...

    Trusting my Butt to the Bronco

    I am about 90 minutes away on a bike ride while my 6 pound Boston Butt is smoking away on my Bronco. All three times,
    I've used the Bronco it held 225-235 for hours on end so I'm riding.
