My first cook

Pork Butt and Brisket. Loaded up the WSM. Forgot to take picture of brisket before throwing it on the smoker. #-o Here's a pic of the two pork butt's. This was my first time trying to trim the fat and it took me quite a while, not the prettiest job. Ended up having to tie one of them end to end because it was about ready to fall apart. Smoker is sitting between 225 and 250 now, wonder how late I'll be up tonight. I intended to get up around 7 a.m. and get things going, course when you don't get to bed till 5 a.m. thats kind of hard to do. Hoping everything turns out ok. [-o<

Hey Kid, the butts look great. Did you have to tie them due to your trimming or were they the boneless butts?? What kinda rub are you using?

Boneless butts, but I trimmed alot of fat off. I followed the Pork Butt preparation method over on The Virtual Bullet site. Using a rub from that site as well.

Southern Succor Rub
1/4 cup ground black pepper
1/4 cup paprika
1/4 cup Turbinado sugar
2 Tablespoons table salt
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Coming along good I think. :biggrin: Temp holding steady at 240 for the past few hours. Think I'll turn everything and baste the butts in about an hour, I'll take some photos then. I forgot to insert the probe thermo into any of the meat. #-o So I'll put it in the brisket then as well. Got an oven thermo on the lower rack and a candy thermometer in the top vent.

Here are the pics I took when I turned everything over. Probably should have done it sooner, brisket is at 174 now so should be done soon. And I should have took the butt photo before flipping it over, the bark was looking good on it. Last two are my dinner, ABT's and the chicken tenders with KC Masterpiece Carribean Jerk marinade. Haven't tasted them yet....[-o<
