WHAT??????  You have so much time to wait and you don't know what to do?????  SHHHHHHHHHH    ;D ;DGotta remember the Bradley pledge.  Smoking is hard work.  Never a spare minute to sit and rest.  Always let them see you in a  sweat.   ;D ;D.  Might I suggest grabbing a beer or 12 and relax and enjoy the day. 

Congrats on the 1st smoke.  Might consider keeping a log of what you did, how long it took, what went right and what went wrong. 


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

8 to 10?  Pretty optimistic aren't you Tommy? :D  I'm thinking a wee bit longer than 8-10.

Well the ham is.  ;D    Sorry the picture isn't clear but you get the idea.

Glaze is   1 bottle Sundrop (Mtn-Dew will work) 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp cloves (power) a pinch of sea salt. Mix over low boil til it's thick and to your liking.  Spread mixture over the ham every 15 to 20 min's (after 3 to 4 hrs smoke) and slice (pictures soon of slicing

 
Boy the butt on the other hand is taking forever!!!   not use to waiting, heck I feel like a new father waiting and waiting and waiting!  I keep looking out the door to make sure the power is on!!!!!  Boy talk about a newbie!!   ;D

Yeah Tommy, that ham is definitely done and rocking!  Beautifully done.

First time on a Bradley maybe but this definitely is not your first rodeo around a pit.

Let me just go ahead and get this over with.

Tommy - ham looks great. Butts take a while, that's why they made 12 packs and 18 packs of adult beverages.
