    I will be smoking around 225* with a mix of hickory and oak for minimum 12hrs, probably closer to 14.
    I will keep those who are interested up to date. Up date starting around 4am Sunday. :hat:

    Nice. You don't? I vaguely remember or completely mistaking that you like it but had some that was too tough and fatty?

    I usually separate and make hash. I'm the only one in the family who appreciates burnt ends.

    You got it bro, looks great. My family also do not like a bunch of bark so I foil around 160* or so. Do you foil or just let it rip?

    Beer, burgers, Nintendo, BBQ chicken, Frasier, the Dallas Cowboys, eating pussy, karaoke, pugs...

    Very close... My initial impression was negative because of the fatty/tough/gristliness. Haven't really had it since. So while I can't say definitively that I don't like it, I'm leaning in that direction until I'm dissuaded. It's not easily found around here I guess. I never see it in restaurants.

    What rig do you use to smoke?

    I have the Pro Q Excel, the thing is nice. I can do a 12-14 hr smoke with minimal checking or adding.

    Got it. You had bad BBQ, that sucks. It is a unforgiving piece of meat, but done correct it is delicious. Don't give up hope, you will find your delicious meat. And he will care about your feelings.:c
