4 HOURS DOWN!
Got a nice looking bark happening. I've had a few rain showers so temp been a little up and down with the wind. but I have managed to pull the kettle under shelter to miss the rain.
Sitting around 230*. I am using the dregs of my only box of charcoal at hand. Lots of little pieces burning out quickly so I've had to throw on a few hand fulls unlit lump (more like crumb) at 2 hours and now at 4 hours. along with topping up the top water pan.
I have also decided I'd try make some pork crackling. I kept the skin from the butt and nailed it in rock salt and a touch of the memphis dust. Dunno what it will turn out like. Hopefully crunchy and delicious!
Also under that top water pan I have laid out all the trimmings from the butt straight over the hot fire... present a burnt offering as a pleasing aroma to the LORD!
