Did my first cook on my XL this past weekend. 7# pork butt along with some skillet cornbread while the butt was resting.
12 hrs. low and slow at 240. Wrapped at 9 hrs. with some apple juice.

    That's real nice!  It looks like it should have pulled well. How'd  you serve it?
  • Looks delicious, nice work!

    Way to show off on your first cook.  Nice! 

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Love the cook, especially the corn bread.  Here is my favorite easy skillet corn bread recipe.  Its great done on the egg.  I also like to throw in a handful of chopped jalapenos.

    1 box of Jiffy (1 and 1/2 cups)
    1 cup of yellow cake mix
    2 eggs
    1 cup of whole milk
    3-4 TBS of margarine blended into mix
    1-2 TBS of canola oil in skillet

    Bake at 400 deg for 15 minutes.

    It was a little light on the smoke for my taste. I need to get chunks, I only have chips at the moment.
    It was fall apart tender. I shredded it with my hands.
    We made a steak last night, cranked it up and got a great sear on it.
    Looks like we'll try pizza on Sunday and next weekend I'm diving in and doing an overnighter with a packer brisket.

    Boo-yah....that looks awesome, and I am loving that cornbread in the CI Skillet.  Speaking of CI, I picked up a large CI skillet at a garage sale this weekend for $2.00!!  I am thinking Skillet Cornbread this weekend!

    That looks about perfect.  Very nicely done.  Definitely switch to chunks for better smoke flavor.  Makes a huge difference.
