Butts Are On!

Cooking 2 butts today about 14 1/2 lbs total. Cooking on the stumps (225) with a stoker attached and using lump charcoal for fuel and hickory chunks for flavor. Ought to get plenty of pulled pork out of this one for the Atkins Diet (Day 5).

I'll be adding a turkey breast to the smoker later in the day.

I'll post additional pics as the cook progresses. Weather is extremely warm (approximately 52 degrees at 5:50 AM) but rainy.

Will do Larry! What does your life style change entail. Mine as I mentioned above is Atkins low carb. I did this because I could at least keep eating and making BBQ with some small modifications, tomato puree for ketchup, splenda for sugar, cream for milk. Variety in my opinion is the key. I made some great turkey ala king the other night. It was very rich, very satisfying and very low carb.

Good luck on your life syle change and weight loss goals!

I am still eating everything I ate before, but am cutting everything in half of what I previously ate. For the time being I've also cut alcohol out, but I do not plan on never drinking again. But when I do, that will also have to be cut in half, that will be the hardest part. I think the most important part of my lifestyle change is exercise. I bought on of THESE right before Christmas and try to ride it between 5-6 miles everyday. First week was horrible, now it's getting better. Oh last but not least I try to drink as much water as I can throughout the day!

Wow... they really changesd the shelves on the Stumps. I like everything but the OS logo. Take that off before you give it to me please. Maybe replace it with a NCSU. That would still go with the paint.

Chris the shelves were recently changed by Stumps. They are stainless steel. No additional charge for the upgrade.
