ya know I've never put wors. on pork. Do you find it flavors the bark or is it just something for the rub to hang on to?

Rempe those are some pretty big butts!! I see you are using sand, good man! For some reason I thought you used water? Nice windbreak too! What's the internal temp at? They gonna be done on time or are you gonna have to foil???

175* internal...I think it rained harder than I thought...some of the ash has caked in the fire ring choking the fire out a little...had to do some extra work, threw in more coal and hope it will fire back up. If it gets stuck till 10am I will go in the oven to finish! WSM @ 200* right now

Same thing happened to me in the competition...middle of the night I noticed temps dropping below 200 despite adding coals. Then I noticed the ash not falling through the grates....took a stick a poked around a little bit, that helped.

So I've got 2 coals grates perpendicular to each other to prevent smaller coals from falling....I'm think next time I'll just use one.

Pulled the butts around Noon...had to do a "Hot Squat" to break up the ash that caked together. When I went to put the WSM back together I spilled some pork fat on the coals and boy did it start a smoking!!

Jst put the baked beans on...they came out of the fridge so I am allowing for a lnger cook on them as I have never done them cold before!

The butts looked good...sprayed them down with AJ a few times in the end to make sure the pork smoke didn't add a bad flavor...had a little bark and it tasted ok!

This will be my last post until the party is over and I can get the pics up! Have a great day everyone...Sunny and 70 in Cleveland, Ohio!!! =D> =D>

I've never understood the "Hot Squat", I've never had to ever attempt to do one. Must be the Ohio smokers???

Rempe had to do the 'Hot Squat' after going to Woodman's last weekend.

Mr. Morgan (still not calling you Captain after the boat thing),
Don't ever use the double grate is you are using Kinsford. All that ash will just sit there and choke your fire.

I use a remote Maverick ET-73 through the dome vent. Works great and I would highly recommnend it!

So here are the pics from beginning to end...these were probably the best butts I've done so far...even with the grease accident. The beans WERE AWESOME and there were none left...I barely got a scoop full by the time I got around to the eats!

I sprayed with apple juice the last two hours and I thought it worked really good. Also, I spayed AJ on the PP after I pulled it to keep it moist and it worked out well too!!

All in all it was a great party and the food was good too!!

HERE are the pics!!
