    Breaking in the new patio with a 9.0 lb pork butt on the WSM

    Last week I had a patio installed. Tonight I kicked off the fall season with a 9.0 lb Boston Butt. I did this Harry Soo style. It was absolutely dynamite.

    My previous "Yard BBQ":



    The new patio entrance:


    The rest of the story:


    Here is the pork butt, injected, rubbed and on the WSM:



    Here are a couple of pictures of the pulled pork:



    I put the meat on the WSM at 9.30 A.M. holding a temperature of 250 degrees. It only varied slightly all day long. It was done at 6:45 P.M. My wife did a stellar job pulling it and supplying sides (no pics as we were too busy eating...

    The pork just seems to keep getting better. This particular butt came as a pair from GFS (Gordon Food Service). It came as a pair totalling nearly 19.0 lbs. It was on special at $1.49 per lb. Wonderful pork and at a bargain price. A feller can hardly do better!! A special thanks to Harry Soo, for his great recipe!

    I wish I had had the patio built 25 years ago. I flat LOVE it, in spite of it's modest size.

    Keep on smokin'

    Looks like a good way to break in the new patio.

    Thanks for the kind words, good people. We can certainly BBQ just about anywhere (and I HAVE) but it is NICE to have a pleasant place for the job.

    Good smokin',

    I wish I had a patio but I'm in the market for a job after I just lost mine.

    I'm just hoping to survive at this point, but I do wish that I didn't have my WSM 22.5 sitting on a few bricks in the middle of my yard. It sucks working in the grass...

    Jeff;
    The main thing is not lose heart. Keep your spirits up (BBQ'ing will help). If you can't afford steak, right now, then eat pork (just bought a couple of Bone in Boston Butts for $1.49 per lb.). Then when you get your new job (we'll be pulling for you BIG TIME) then you can celebrate!!

    I've been out of a job a couple of times, so I do know what runs through a feller's mind. This is not a good time on the economic front, that's for sure. "It too will pass"...

    Keep on smokin', my friend!
