Carolina Summer DrumPit Smoking
 
I could not have asked for a better day to do a little DrumPit smoking.
Got a nice breeze, 87* and Partly Sunny!! Today I'm cooking up an 8lb. Pork Picnic. Got the DrumPit loaded with Kingsford, some Black Cherry and some White Oak chunks. I love the flavor profile that wood combo produces.

DrumPit coming up to Temp..

I've prepared an injection of 1/2 cup Apple Juice and 1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar, with a TableSpoon of my Long Beard Pork Rub...No Wise Cracks about my Secret Injection Ingredient there in the background...Minty Fresh!!

I prefer the flavor of picnics over butts for some reason. That one looks like it's gonna hit the spot!

Can't wait for the money shot. :clap2:

Rock Steady Temp, all day long. I did kick the can a while ago to knock down the ash..Should be good to go for another 4-6 hours..

What are red hot breakfast sausages? They look like Tijuana Mamas but more "hotdoggish". Those things always kill me, but every time I see one in the checkout lanes I end up buying one.

bluetang 06-25-2011 09:03 PM

Man, that does look good! And once again you got my NC girl excited with those Red Hots, and I thank you:-D!
