<p />Mr. Big. First time using JJ's rub on a butt. Full load of lump. Good steady fire. What could be better.[p]Carl T

    Carl T, It looks great, let us know the uniformity of this cook when finished. I like that air suspension system.

    Char-Woody,[p]Will do. I put the butt on around 9:30 pm CT. I will insert the polder probe in the morning. It has been holding steady at 240. I will give the lump a gentle stir before I turn in.

    MickeyT.,[p]It was about a six pounder. It was on sale at 1.19/lb and cost about 6.50. I always forget to look at the weight on the wrapper before I pitch it.[p]My table has a large and a small egg. I wouldn't part with either.[p]Going to pick up a brisket flat and try my first attempt at jerky tomorrow. I think I am going to use the toothpick method.[p]Carl T

    Carl,[p]I have done jerky with toothpicks about 12 times now and my experience is that the jerky probably won't all be done at the same time. I pull each pc. off as it looks done. Can't beat the texture of brisket IMHO.[p]Good luck.[p]Mick

    MickeyT.,Is that the cut you prefer for jerky? (brisket)
    Have you tryed outside/inside round yet?
    I would love to try a brisket some time for jerky but it`s not real popular round these parts....
    Flank would be nice but it`s so freakin expensive.[p]I have another 4 pounds of round marinating right now for a afternoon cook tomorrow...[p]Mop!
