Saturday Smoking, Eating and Football

Real Estate Agent with Albuquerque Homes Realty 16572


Starting at 4am I put a 10lb pork butt (or shoulder) depending on how your butcher labels it onto my Traeger Pellet Smoker.  My bride and pup Dixie got me the smoker for Father's day.  I prepped the big butt with Kosher Salt and lots of my favorite Pork Rub the day before (called dry brining) so it could soak up the salt.  So up at 4am I put this bad boy on for a 13.5 hr smoke.  


We managed a few chores, listed a nice piece of land, attended Church and then settled in for some college football.  My bride loves the Alabama boys who kicked off at 5pm and by 5:30 the big butt was ready to pull of the grill and 30 minutes later start to shred this pork into some fabulous pulled pork sandwiches.  Life just don't get much better than Saturday Smoking, Eating and Football.

Hi John - That looks awesome! I've been thinking that it's time to smoke a pork shoulder - perfect for cooler fall weather. I use hickory and a traditional hot/sweet sauce.

That looks wonderful.  We are having steak kabobs later.  I am hoping the hubby feels like firing up the grill during halftime of the Bronco game.

We have a smoker and my husband makes really wonderful ribs now and then. The smell of them cooking all day long is to die for!

I love to eat the edges called the char and your butt has lots of char. Oh that sound kinda funny doesn't it? Anyway It makes me want to have some barbeque.

Our daughter and son-in-law gave us a Traeger Junior as a house warming gift - we've been using it all the time. I don't eat pork, or meat, but love the chicken and fish we've been  having on it. So yummy with that delicate smoke flavor.

Hi John McCormack ,  That sounds like a good combination to me.  It's 3 minutes until kickoff.  3:30, it's Alabama and Texas A & M, so my AR time is on hold.  Then at 7:30,  it's Notre Dame  and USC, here at home.  Maybe I'll come back to AR during the half times.
