With its brand new Nomex gaske and lid properly aligned with the help of some folks here I've started my first overnight cook. I've got some internet friends coming over in the morning to help split some oak that I acquired from a local tree that gave up the ghost about two weeks ago. Should keep us in oak chunks for years. I want to serve pulled pork for lunch.
16 lbs of pork shoulder on at 6 pm. Expect it to go 14 or 15 hours. I loaded the lump a couple of inches above the firebox to ensure plenty of fuel. Intermixed with hickory and cherry. Rubbed down at 5 this morning with Dr BBQ Big Time Rub. It could have been done with a match but it is just too much fun to light the fire starters with a propane torch.
