the Joker's Smoke Day

I started yesterday at 3:55pm with two 5.6 pound butts. Put them on the lower rack with plans to put a half pan of beans on in the am. I've only cooked 7.5 pounders before but just in case... Guru powered WSM ran flawlessly until 10:30 when I pulled the butts. I did have to wrap the legs last night around 8:30 'cause the temps had dropped to 210º but that cleared things up. Got up at 4:30 to check on things and everything was fine ~ Wrapped the legs again for good measure. Butts were wavering between 193 and 194º for about an hour when I pulled them ~ Resting for a few hours in a Coleman Personal. Ribs will be going on the RK at around noon with the beans a bit later. Have a great Smoke Day everyone!

Joker,

Is the finished butt submerged in something? It looks good but the bottom looks like it is in something.

It's laying on 2 layers of HD X-Wide foil ~ Took the pics just before I wrapped it up.

Not sure ~ Just put two 1/2 pans of beans on. Oak smoke. They should take 1.5 to 2 hours. Butts are still restin' ~ Will pull in about an hour. Will be takin a bunch of this over to Deb's sister to see if they want some of this for her son's HS graduation party in early July. It's only a 30 minute drive..



Decided to do the ribs tomorrow and then a bunch of chicken thighs and corn on the cob Monday.

Looks good Bill! How come the beans weren't on the same time the butts were with the beans under the butts?

Well, that was the plan ~ Butts on the bottom rack and beans on the top, but after filling up the WSM with charcoal (it was raining and very humid), I THEN found out the butts were only 5.6 pounds each instead of the usuall 7.5 and I didn't want the charcoal to get too damp so I started the butts at my scheduled start time planning to hold them longer if needed while the beans cooked. Also, doubled up on the beans because the butts were done early. BTW, added maybe 15 coals to make sure I got through the cook time. Might coulda gotten it done without...

I would have thought the beans would be under the butts to get some of that good run off!

I've done that before but it's not the healthiest cook I've done. I was also looking for ease and with the butts started on the bottom, I could just add the beans to the top and everything would come off at the same time.

Thanks everyone. Absolutely, Bill. I followed the basic recipe here and used bacon. Used oak wood pellets but I prefer sugar maple. Got this off of Ray Basso's board a while back..

I checked the Archives and the best one is missing so here is the re-post.
It was posted by Jerry Berwnager June 29, 1996.
Here's a recipe that works well with me and is enjoyed by all of my friends.

2 - 16 oz cans of beans (in Kansas City I use Bush Baked Beans)
Drain sauce out of can and discard.
3/4 cup BBQ sauce
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 cup chopped smoked pork or brisket (or use bacon)
2 tablespoons honey
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard

Serves 6

Fold together all ingredients in a large bowl. Transfer to an aluminum baking pan. Place in smoker uncovered at medium heat (225 F- 275 F.) for about 90 minutes or until heated though.

Hint: Next time you smoke a pork shoulder or brisket put some away in a freezer bag for use in your beans. I use apple wood but hickory and oak work well, you'll have to experiment with your particular cooker.
--------
Comments from Ray
I have changed the recipe a bit. I use skinned red peppers instead of
green. I also add a tablespoon of Head Country's Rub and a tablespoon
of Horseradish.
Ray

Looks great! Nice color.
That recipe is pretty much what I do, but no green peppers.
