Some people say that fishing teachs patience. They have not tried smoking a brisket.

Thanks for the compliments. I have chewed out butts, kiss butt, but never smoked a butt till I got my
Gabi and lurked here in this forum. So this was my first one and it was good. I appreciate all the info I
have gathered from the sharing of ya'lls knowledge here. Sure did make it easy for a newbie.
I got 9 1/2 lbs of pork from those butts. Starting weight was 17.76 lbs.

Thanks again !

Way to go CRG!  Those look great.  I don't care what rub you used just as long as you got to rub a butt or two! ;)

Wensday:
I had a day trip planned before I decided to do this smoke-a-thon. Round trip to Houston is 3 hrs.
I had taken out some boneless ckicken thighs last nite and marinated them (McCormick mesquite
marinade) this morn. I left here at 9 and got back at 4. I called my butcher on my way back home,
and picked up 3 boneless pork slabs (ie bst butt). I got a ton of carnitas (pork pieces) out of the
butts. I decided to use apple without grilling them.
