Smokin on Feb 25 2005

Got 2 butts going on in moments, tomorrow I'm throwin on the corned beef brisket to make pastrami.

So far, I scored the fat on the butts. Big butts, not a lot of fat cap, but I never trim the fat cap. I like it to render down through the meat, if anything is left, I'll pull it out when I'm pulling.

Used my own rub, heavy on sugar and pepper, just a few other spices.
Simpler the better imho. Season the meat, don't cover the taste (which is why I don't like cumin..it changes the flavor to much for me).

Had an abundance of honey mustard. Decided to coat with that. I usually don't do mustard, but I had to get rid of that stuff!

I've always like coating with rub, then mustard, then applying another layer of rub. Don't think anyone else does this, but it works for me.


WSM is heating up, will throw the butts on soon.

Corned beef is soaking, I want to get a lot of the salt out. I'll put it on in the morning when I get up. No guru here, I'll get the temps set and check em when I get up.

no camera...I can get one from a friend tomorrow.

Also, I use a weed burner/flame thrower to light my charcoal (also to clean all my grills).

I use sand in my pan, and decided to heat up that sand with the burner...(it's about 45 degrees here). Temps got above 250 real quick, that's a good way to speed up the preheat process!

last spring, I bought a digital camera, and suddenly realized I had nothing to take pics of. Returned it for a refund. That was before this board. Guess that's one more thing I have to buy to feed this insatiable
hobby! :P

:mornin:

up and moving around now....butts have big bark, but after me picking on Guru owners on another forum, I awoke to find my coals almost gone, and I don't know how high my meat temps got!

:smt011

Looks ok though, I added more coals and will but the beef on soon.

Capn' you'll be okay, kinda hard to get the temps too too high in the WSM without trying! What kinda internal temp do you have?

mid 140's. Very close to the danger zone, but with the heavy bark I know it was on it's way down from a higher temp.

You'll be fine. How longs it been cooking? It most likely had a higher temp before the coals ran out.
