Default Fun Weekend Smokin'

Smoked 4 pork butts yesterday for a friend of mine. I kept one of the butts for my efforts. Since the weather was iffy I pushed them along. Started @ 250F for an hour of hickory & then ramped it up to 325-350F for the balance. Three butts came off @ 205F internal @ 7 hours & the last one @ 8 hours. All were ~ 9 lbs. I didn't notice any difference from past smokes @ 225-250F, other than it took a lot less time. Since there was some room on the smoker I threw on a couple basic fatties that I sliced & will use with egg, sausage & cheese muffins for breakfast in the upcoming weeks.

Today I smoked some Mac & Cheese. Basic recipe & then added 2 chopped Johnsonville Spicy Hot Brats and 14 oz. of Green Chilies. I used about a handful of apple chips on low heat (225F) and when the smoke quit I covered the Mac & cheese and ramped it up to 350F. The neighbor stopped over to give it a try & the only way I could stop him from eating it all was by offering him a Jalapeno American Rye. I think he left a happy man.

If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!
