Default A Beautiful day for Smoking

A beautiful day in sunny So Cal for smoking. The guest of Honor, a 8 lb 9 oz Butt. Rubbed down with Pappy's Hot Rub and let sit for 24 hrs. The next guest will be a Fattie made from his cryovac partner fresh ground and turned into Breakfast sausage yesterday (pics to follow of the fattie).

It has been raining all night so it is gettin a little crowded under the patio cover.

These are brass compression fittings from the pluming dept at HD. I drilled a 1/4" hole in the cap, then filled the cap 1/2 way with red silicone. I thread the probe thru the silicone. there are easier and cheaper ways to do it

Nice so far. Glad it's nice in So Cal. Up here in Nor Cal we got lots and lots of rain and 50 mph winds. No smoking today for me.

wlh3,
Thanks for the pics and explanation. What do you think would be a cheaper and easier way to pass the probe through the wall of the drum?

Well here are the pics of the fattie. The home made sausage was great and will repeat this recipe again. The wife and I made a breakfast of toasted homemade bread and fattie (one piece of toast so we could eat more of the fattie) I have included a pic of a new toy, My weigh i5000 food scale this is great has back lighting and numerals big enough to read without glasses. This darn thing will even count jelly beans etc. reads up to 11 lbs. been driving my wife crazy running around the kitchen weighing everything

Finally over. This was the longest I have ever cooked a butt. Started 0645 ended 2230, 15 hrs 45 min and still did not reach 195* internal. Side temps 210* to 250*, Lid temp 220* to 270*. butt temp stayed at 190* for the last 2 hrs. Finally said fark it! Took it off and pulled it, Tender oh yeah and good moisture. Have any of you guys ever had this happen to you? I did check the internal with 3 diff probes in different spots and they all read the same. Sorry no pics, was too tired. I probly could have foiled it Any other suggestions!
