Week Long Smoke-a-thon
« on: September 14, 2009, 06:14:46 pm »
Last week I jokingly told someone that I wanted to smoke something everday for a week.
The more I thought about, the more it sounded like fun. On Sunday I seasoned up two butts
and when i awoke this morning it dawn on me I probably can't smoke them all in one day and
show pictures. So I scrambled around and did a small smoke for monday. ABT's my way,some
Boudain, and sausage.

I put my de-seeded jalapeno's in my steamer and steamed the for about 12 minutes.

I stuffed them with Boudain and wrapped them.

Everthing is ready to go

Smoke is applied

Time to Eat!

FYI: On the last rub I took the Thyme,Mexican Oregano and Cilantro and ground up in a mortar & pestle before adding to other ingredients.

After the morning smoke and a spit bath for Gabi, I put the twin butts on around 3:30.
My plan is to smoke 4 hrs w/hickory and cook at 210 until how long?....until they are done.
Low and slow. My target temp for pulling is 185 to 190.

This is a pic after 2 1/2 hrs of smoke (6:00). I flipped and rotated and spritzed them with some apple juice.

I took IT readings at 10:30 (147), 11:30 (147) &12:30 (152). I rearranged them for the last time tonite, with some apple spray.
I was thinking about backing down the heat for the nite but it has cooled off to a nice nite. (81 degrees)

Hab's butt rub



Some old man down the road butt rub



OK...I have been working on this all day. I took apart a microwave and took the NSR out and direct wired into Gabi's box.
She didn't like it. I then soldered a piece of hog panel to make a honing device that would send a signal to my old play
station 3. I had it on repeat mode where Luigi saves the Queen. Everytime he saves the queen it prompts for a temp
signal from the IT probe. Once the temp reaches 185, it reverses the polarity of the honing device,thus sending a signal
out of my DTV cable back into to space and straight to our local firestation .
They will call the house waking me up warning of a fire and I will tell them we have no fire. I will then pull my butts.

This is gonna be a fun week.

Actually I set my clock for 5 and lowered the temp to 200.

Some one should call your fire department about your scheme and have them come and take your pork butts for their dinner.  ;D
