    Follow my cook!

    Greetings fellow pitmasters!

    I have some friends coming over to watch some football tomorrow and I will be smoking up a pork butt for the occasion. I did some prep tonight, took some pictures, and plan to update as the cook progresses tomorrow. I bought a 'picnic pork shoulder' because it was 8.9lbs versus the 'full pork butts' that were a bit smalller. Isnt labeling fun? I will be cooking on my modified for reverse flow COS (a brinkman). I trimmed the fat, tied up the meat, and salted (dry brine). I am following meathead's best pulled pork ever recipe.

    The ribs I made based on the 'last meal ribs' recipe got rave reviews; I now have a reputation to protect!

    Can't wait to get started in the morning.

      Man, get a label maker and relabel those "full" pork butts, I think Tim Whatley has one to re-gift.

      Picnics have looooong muscle fibers.....

            You do know he only converted to Judaism for the jokes, right? Am I being an anti-dentite bas****?

            Well it is our sense of humor that has sustained us as a people for the last 3,000 years.

            Just saw this episode Friday.

          Ok we are about five hours in; this is my first pork butt by the way, forgot to mention that.

          One piece of advice: buy the thermometers recommended on this site. I bought a cheap digital that had a probe and a cable. It failed after five minutes so I had to make an emergency trip to the store and get a leave in dial style thermo. Not good. You can see the original probe in the first picture.

          When my youngest daughter woke up this morning she said, "daddy it smells like dinner." Haha.

          I am using apple wood for flavor. Attached are some pics.

          I must say it is a beautiful day in the Phoenix area.

            Thanks for the kind words. I am from around the San Antonio, TX area so I, like many others in the city, are awaiting the day that we get our own football team.

            I am not, nor have I ever been, a Cowboys fan. And don't get me started on the Texans.

            Looks kind of funny without hooks in it

            Yeh, I envy those who can just freeze chunks of meat and throw into a cooker without any steel devices inserted.....kinda
