Soothing my pain........

Woke up at my normal 3am, got in the shower and all of a sudden I felt like a boiled piece of meat. The water was scalding hot, even with the cold water almost all the way on. So I figured something was wrong and it was was confirmed later when we have absolutely no hot water. So I stayed home for the repairman. Called this morning and the parts are still under warranty but I'll have to pay for the service call and labor, there goes my beer money! So I said I'm not gonna let this get me down, dug through the freezer and found a 4.5lb butt. Plopped in the sink for a couple hours in cold water, rubbed down with Bad Byrons Butt Rub and it's on the Primo with lump and hickory. Perfect size for a weekday spur of the moment cook!

3 am?! Well, at least you'll get a tasty meal out of it. Hope you didn't get too badly burned.

Now that's what I call a rude awakening! Hope the service call and labor aren't too expensive. It looks like you're making good use of your time at home!

There is never good time for the water heater to go out.

At least you are making good use of the time.

Maybe the repair man will swap his service for that butt you got cooking.

Make sure that butt is smokin' when the repairman is there, and trade it for his services!!!!!!

If he won't, eat some right in front of him.
