Today is Butt. I’m trying something new with this 10 lb pork butt. Mustard, salt, pepper, and brown sugar all as a rub. Then into the smoker with smoking the butt for 6 hours. I spray it ever so often with apple juice. It will be in the smoker over night at 220 degrees. If I get up in the night I will spray it down again. I will start spraying it in the morning in either case. I will stick a thermo in it and wait tell the internal temps reaches about 160. Then wrap it up in foil and back in the smoker until it reaches 190 degrees internal temp. I have several options from that point. I think I will wrap it up in two towels and put in a cooler and wait for dinner with Dan & Jenny Sheppard.
During the day I went into the mouth of the Beast and turned on the Hydro Hot heat system. Just making sure it works. I went thru my area and got rid of “my stuff” that I haven't used this “stuff” since being here in Livingston last. I put it the mobile. It took me about three hours. Then I rubbed out some areas on the Beast’s skin that got junk on it from the different repair shops like putty and silicone smears. That took about an hour.
NASCAR – the little guys races were today for the last time until next year. It was an anxious type race. Tomorrow the big boys race.
