Newbie from NC

Hey guys,

Joined the site a little while ago and thought I would say hello. Been browsing a little and it sure seems to be great site to learn and try different ways of smoking and trying some of these awesome recipes that I have been reading. I have been smoking for a few years (mainly ribs and butts) and I want to expand my knowledge here. Thanks in advance for all your help and input that I am sure i will be asking!

Welcome.

We might have a couple questions for you about butts and ribs.

Just remember though, we like pictures.

Hey Wayne..hearty welcome. Now not sure about this butt deal. Some of your fellow NC residents often claiming they dont even know what is a butt. They only cook full shoulders..blah blah blah. Obviously them bloviaters was bloviating huh? lol.

Maybe BW. Here on the western side of the state there are plenty of butts as well as shoulders and labeled as such. lol Personally I prefer the butt it seems to have a better flavor in my opinion. I did a shoulder awhile back and did not like it as much as the butt. Could have been the one smoking it to. Have done alot of smokes but I really didnt understand or know the proper temps that was needed for pulled pork, so some were good and some not so good. This site has enlightened me on such things and I hope many more to come. Thanks for the welcome to all. Will post pictures as I get them.

Ok sounds reasonable. Full shoulders are apparently illegal in Tejas..lol. Must pack easier to fill up the boxes once them critters get dismembered at the shoulder joint. Having been seldom blessed with a fully connected unit will say both hunks of the shoulder are very good. My bunch loves fresh picnics cooked sliceable (where it poses as unsalty ham) then moving quickly to pushed pork.. butt and picnic combos aka whole shoulders work well. Picnics a bit too hammy oriented to pass muster alone. Now butts can do it but not quite the cats meow as per the dynamic duo. I never even heard of pushed pork til a few years back. Its a strange world out there. Have I give you the link to my NC kin yet? All my Grandmas folks was refugees from up there. My Grandpa's folks was from Tenn. This on my Daddy's side. We got crosslinked with Native Americkan Injun Peeples on my Mamas side. No..we did not eat dawgs I dont think. We was peaceable farmers called Choctaws from whut can be gathered. Now they do go crazy on fire water for some reason. Evil white devils brought it ya know?

Welcome! It's always good to have another NC resident (I won't insult you by calling you a Tarheel ) on the board.

Thanks for the welcome Larry. Would'nt be an insult, I am a heel through and through, though I have not seen many from NC on here. By the way, I had a crew in Clemmons the other day working on a bridge.
