I got my garden 50% planted before the rain came and now it's rainy BBQ time.
My knee has a meniscus tear and I'm off the crutches but I'm hobbling around with a cane until the orthoscopic surgery in a couple weeks. So I'm standing in the rain, limping around on a cane like a 90 year old man and firing up the BBQ.
(side note, my baby is 7 months old now!!)

Starting with Spatchcock chicken, then I will start cooking a little more chicken to bring to a Filipino graduation party.
I'm cooking a batch of legs and some Big Ron's hot wings.
When I get home, I will be cooking a pork but while we sleep. my probes are fried on my maverick so I will be getting up every 2-3 hours to ck on it.
Right now the Spatchcock chicken has been on 30 minutes and I'm about to mix up some vinager mop sauce.

BBQ and party went great. I heard several people were asking how the hot wings were made. (Big Ron's BBQ sauce and srirachi sauce)

I will be firing up the butt in a few hours

Pork butt time!
Butt is on.
It's an 11 pound butt from my butchered hog.

Rubbed with Oakridge BBQ competition rub


red bag RO lump with apple wood


My maverick is working so far. I will use it for as long as it decides to work...

6 hours into the cook and the temps are 271 in the smoker and a 145 degree butt. The smoker temp kicked the high alarm on the maverick and I'm up listening to the birds. The intake is shut down and I'm kicked back waiting on the temp to drop to under 260. Then I will set it and forget it again

Pinkelephant you turned out some beautiful chicken. The color on that is very nice. Love the look of those legs and wings!!! I'm sure that was a nice addition to the graduation celebration. Looks like your butt is coming along nicely.

Thanks KC!
the chicken turned out great. (The wife loves my chicken, I get practice weekly)

This is my third time doing butts (i think), but the UDS and the maverick do all the work. I'm just waiting to eat.

8.5 hours, 158F. I'm going back to bed

It's been 12 hours now. the smoker is still at 250 and the butt is up to 168. I just woke up. the maverick got me up twice. first time it flared up over 270, the second time it went down to 220. All the lump burnt out in the bottom of the basket, leaving a layer of good fuel on top. I used a mini shovel to pile the remaining fuel together and threw in another apple log.

I just remembered that I was supposed to leave out the pizza pan diffuzer. oh well, I will remove it the next time I go outside. (I figured out last summer that I only need it for ribs)

The butt smoked for 16 hours and it was loved by all. I fed 9 people, froze 2 pounds and still have a half a pound in the fridge.





The butt fell apart when pulling it out of the UDS






I started with my nachos, then I invited everyone over for hogies. I dribbled the butt juice into some refried beans and that worked very well too.
