Thought I'd share some pics of my adventure with you guys.....


Thursday night picked out a nice coupla butts from the local Piggly Wiggly. $1.19/lb for nearly 19 lbs worth of pork!

Slathered on some mustard and put 'em in the fridge until friday night, giving them 24 hours to soak it in.

Friday evening. Getting the old Backwoods Smoker ready. I used briquets to start with and then switched to hickory.

2.5 hours later the ABT's came out great.

Went to bed and used my remote temp gauge.....the temp stayed between 220 and 245 the entire night. Saturday morning 7 am and the internal meat temp is at 190 or so. Cooked it another 2 hrs pulled it off and and let it sit for an hour and it shredded beautifully. The bark was a little blacker than I was expecting considering this was the first time I used a rub instead of a sauce on a butt...but it had a fantastic flavor, not charred at all.

Oh and is that smoker gas?

Thanks

Ah...the atomic buffalo turds. Jalapenos cut in half with seeds and membrane scooped out to make a little boat. stuff with cream cheese, set a lil' smokie on top of the chees, wrap in bacon and smoke for 2-3 hours. Gas? Never!!


Lew
Yeah, the tater method is pretty clever. But it didn't work for me...I couldn't get the probe thru the tater far enough to keep it from reading what the heated tater temp was. I ended up using a piece of a brown paper bag folded up to use as a buffer between the grill grate and the probe....that worked great.
