Standard fare

Yesterday after supper I started a pork butt. I did only one because I had only one. (I need to buy some meat!)


Ready for the fridge. The rub is the old standby from Smoke & Spice, The Renowned Mr. Brown. I love all that pepper.


Ready to come off. It went faster than usual, about 7 1/2 hrs.


Ready for foil. Taking it off the smoker I accidentally broke off a chunk from the end. Guess how I disposed of the chunk.

This is my first food post. I hadn't used ImageShack before, and I'm happy to acquaint myself with the (pop-up laden) service.

--John
(The pulled pork got rave reviews from the unbiased tasters, my wife and mother-in-law.)

It barely made 6 lbs, and I had trouble keeping the temp down; the vent thermometer read ~ 260-280 the first couple hours.

--John
(I want to get another probe-type thermometer to put on the grill.)

Looks good John. The folks on this site like food porn pics. Although I'm still disturbed at some level with the fact that you cooked on a Monday.

Thanks for the tip, Chris. I just ordered an ET-73. Interesting, it was $10 less than amazon.com, and even with amazon's free shipping, I saved $6.

(Hey, I believe I saw one of those on Griff's deck this summer. )

And going to VA... you should have it in a couple of days.
I ordered another one last week and it was here last week. With USPS.
