Default Black Betty's first pron

I know Rookie48 holds the record for the longest time building a UDS but I probably hold the record for the longest time having one done but not using it yet waited for fire basket. That changed this weekend.

First off I will say everyone on this board is crazy. Secondly I can see why for being my first time ever smoking something I felt like it is better than half the resturants/catered pulled pork sammies I have had. (I owe a lot to my brother irrad8 and of course this website.)

My Mens Rec softball team took first place this fall, clinched first a couple of Monday's ago when it was 30 degrees out here in Iowa, so I thought a celebration party would be a great time to try my hand at smoking. Little cocky for trying it out on 20 people considering I never had meat on the UDS and never had tried to smoke before.

Got up a 4 am (25 degrees, wind gusts of 25 mph, wind chill in the teens), 2 7 lb pork butts on at 4:45 am cruising around 220 ish, rubbed with Penzy's the night before. Foiled when internal was 165 around 1:15 pm. Took the UDS to 330 because of time pulled when internal was 198 at 3:15 pm. Only in cooler for 1 hr because the natives were restless. I was planning on 5:30 supper time. My picture taker didn't do a very good job. They didn't get a picture before I started pulling/in the container/or a sammie. Oh well.

I don't want burst yours or Rookie48's bubble but "Brian in So Cal" holds the record for longest time to build a UDS. He's well over a year and hasn't even burned the drum out.

That being said, your grub looks fantastic.
