Now look what we started.

If you get a divorce, you have to cut off your hand?

That's scary!

I think they only do that in South America.

Me and the wife are one in the same, I call her my left hand.  :o :o

So when you are mad at her, you put your hand in your back pocket?

If you get a divorce, you have to cut off your hand?

That's scary!

ROLFMAO  ;D :D ;D :D

Ok, so now that the voting's over and I finally got some pics going. Here's what I've got.

Some Pork Butt.


Did some cutting, tried for 1/2 & 1/2, but who knows what I got.


The sauces for the experiment.


Sealed and soaking overnight.

I don't think I'll ever have to worry about getting a divorce, I've been with her since I can't remember. She's always there for me. Me and Rosie (Palms) are meant for each other, just ask any other women I've been around.  :D

Here's some more pics.

Pulled the butts out and let them sit for an hour while the Bradley came up to temp. Put them in and ready for smoke. Probably should've put the pans in before the butts, you can see some dripping in the bottom already. Going to do 4 hours of Pecan at 210 F.


I'll be basting every hour for the first 4 hours. Here they are after an hour ready for the first baste.


After 2 hours the temps are 87CT and 99AF, Boy that AF sure does smell of vinegar.
After the 4 hours, I'll seal up the foil around the butts, and shoot for IT of 195, maybe increasing the temp.

DB,
Kevin is Single.

I got that, that was just an attempt (and apparently a bad one) at humor.

Thanks. After 3 1/2 hours temps are 112 CT and 117 AF. I nocked up the set temp to 220 cause the smoker was staying on the chili side around 160.

Why do you think you have a 5 degree swing between the 2?  Is one thicker than the other?  I note they are both on the same rack.  I would think it a bit odd to have 5 point difference in the two.


Enough ain't enough and too much is just about right.

The fat collegen runs funny thru a butt and one side could have a little more, thus remaing cooler.

I think it is actually pretty close.

Yea, I'm not too concerned. It is interesting cause even now it's still 5 off. Been running that way pretty much from the start, currently CT is at 127 and AF is 132.

Thank for the answer.  Wondering if the probe's were switched if you would get the same reading?  I do understand that it is no big deal as they will be done when they are done.  I am the type that will take things apart to understand why it works this way then when I put it all together again I have parts left over.  LOL
