So, since the girls would be gone a good 12+ hours, I decided an afternoon of BBQ, Beer, Bourbon and Poker was in order. I invited the family men (brother in laws, nephews, etc.) for an afternoon of goofing off.
On Thanksgiving evening I took out a 12lb pork butt and let it sit out for a little over an hour to let it come up in temp a little bit. I applied some Dizzy Pig Dizzy Dust rub and then tossed into the smoker. I used bourbon barrel staves for the wood.
At 3:00 a.m. I got up and checked the temp.....167. Perfect! I pulled it out, foiled it and placed it back into the smoker. At 9:30 a.m. when the temp reached 207, I pulled it out, wrapped it in a towel and put it in a cooler to sit for a couple hours.
During the game we enjoyed some whiskey libations that included 1991 Eagle Rare 101, 1988 Weller Special Reserve, Caperdonich 19 year and Four Roses OESO barrel strength.
It was a good Black Friday and I'm thinking I'll repeat this next year....and hopefully win my money back.
