Pics of my first cook

Performed my first cook today. Wanted to start with something relatively simple so I cooked a 5 lb. Boston Butt for me and my wife. Smoked with some hickory wood.  Was delicious and tender.The bark was excellent.

    Enjoy the eats! An idea for leftovers, pulled pork bbq pizza cooked on your egg!

    Great job. Someone has been reading the forum for a while. 

    Now we need details. Time, temp, IT, rub.... I'm sure things could be ramped up to a Fri night level.

    Beware, it's only matter of time, say your 4th or 5th butt,  before your SWMBO will state she's tired of butt.
