BBQ

I am so tired this morning. Not to mention I am so totally running late to work. I didn't get to bed until 1am last night. I decided to do some BBQ last night in the new smoker. I smoked a pork butt (Boston butt) and some spare ribs. The pork butt went on first but still very late at 1:30pm. I should have put it on and then gone to church. At about 3:30pm I put the ribs on. I added wood chips a couple times and added apple cider to the "water pan". The ribs got mopped at 6:30pm and came off at 7pm. They were really good. Next time I am going to leave them another 30 minutes to get a more fall of the bone effect. At 10 pm the pork butt was 165 degrees. I needed it at 185-190. I pulled it off, wrapped it in foil and put it in and oven at 225 degrees. At 11:45pm it was at the right temp and I pulled it out and let it sit for 45 minutes. I passed out on the couch during this time. When I woke up I grabbed 2 forks and pulled the pork apart and dropped it into some Tupperware. I made sure to sample some meat from all parts and seperated the fatty sections into another Tupperware for the dogs. The meats was awesome! So tender and juicy with great flavor. I think my first time with the smoker went really well and I learned some great lessons. I can't wait until next time.

Bday

I am behind in the thought dumps. I rented a Harley Fat Boy Lo for the day on my birthday. I am used to sportbikes but I have always liked Harleys and I have been wanting to try them out. That bike was awesome. It was like riding around on a lazyboy. It was so smooth and comfortable. I really enjoyed it. I will be renting all the other models that I can so that I can figure out what I want to own. Then I will stalk it and buy it when I can pull it off.
