We just had a few chuck sammies..   If I can get it on sale, I'd say it's almost as good as the briskets I've done.

Next time I'll go with 2 smaller roasts, and maybe inject them with something to introduce a little more fat/moisture.

4 Buck Chuck is a bit steep, but this week, he's going for $2.50/lb.   Might have to snag a couple for the freezer.

I sent you several pictures from the phone this weekend - only to find there are some "black holes" in Branson (several pics never went through).
I really enjoyed the shows down there (I must be getting old).
BUT - That place is a mess...

I expected everything to be more "centralized". 
The town is spread all over the place - like some kinda Pidgeon Forge on steroids tourist h*ll spaghetti...

We have a little bit...   ;)

I picked up a digital scale from Wally World and divied up Butt & Chuck into ~1 pound vac bags. 

For the record:  8 pound butt yielded 4.5 pounds of actual pulled pork.  9 pound chuck (after lots of midnight munching, cold breakfast carnivore raiding, and a few sammies for lunch) had 4.25 pounds left.

I got 4 or 5 pics from you that I posted to Picasaweb.  I'll send you the link.

CRG...  You ain't gonna believe this... He sings as good as ever..
He's 82... and he he's running on 8 cylinders.  I reckon he'll be there long after I'm gone.

It was a fantastic, uplifting Christmas show...
Glad I went ;-)

Glad you had fun, but we did miss your (sic) humor. Glad to see you back. You have a lot of catch up reading to do.
