If it has any fat cap left on it - cook fat cap down in that little smoker.
What Rub are you gonna use - some of these guys like just Salt n Pepper And Garlic but i prefer a rub - Adkins Western
Haven't gone fancy or daring yet. Still feeling out this little cobbed smoker!
Planning on a simple salt/pepper dusting.
I have several rubs here now, but wasn't sure what to use on a flat.
We'll go with salt/pepper for now.

I hope it's a good one! I trimmed what seemed to be flappy/excess but it wasn't much! I watched FranklinBBQ on YouTube for quick hints.
To say I'm excited is an understatement!
I've got this ready to go ( ghetto charcoal starter)
And this loaded for bear tomorrow!
I still plan on starting around 3:30 or 4...Rest in cooler for a couple hours
Giddy. Just Giddy!
Thanks for all the advice!
