A butt and some briskey
After looking at all the deliciousness on this forum all week, I had the itch for smoked meats.. I asked the Mrs to pick me up a brisket and a pork butt.. (Usually I pick out all my own meat, but I've been working massive overtime lately, I thought I had her trained by now) She got the butt part right, 9lbs, nice color, money muscle etc.. The brisket, on the other hand, was 2 sad excuses for flats. Each about 3-4lbs, not much to look at. I wasn't expecting much from them. Everything got injected and rubbed last night, and put in to smoke at 8am. I took it real low and slow trying to coax some life into the flats. They hit 160 around 2pm, got the foil till 6, in the cooler till 7. I was very surprised at how well they came out. Super moist and tender for a HOF. When I took them off they were probe tender at 204. Made some cheesy potatoes to go with it, complete with the burnt end pieces of my home made bacon. Green beans are from the garden. All in all, a damn fine meal.
The butt is resting, I'll throw up a pic after its pulled.
