I would have to agree with Elf, sounds like PeppA is a very major ingredient!! Your dishes probably wouldn't turn out right w/o a little (or a lot) PeppA

Indirect heat with side firebox

Looks like you and I have the same grill. I picked mine up at Lowe's last year and this spring I finally got around to putting on the side firebox (it's about 40 bucks extra).

Anyway, I wish I'd done that a year ago. You can load up the whole grill with butts, sausage, ribs, etc. and still get that great indirect heat and smoke. Wonderful stuff.

Ask for Boston butt or pork butt. Same thing. It's the front shoulder of the hog.

Did you check the first page? If it's not there I think Winglover took it to the grocery store so she'd get the right thing. (I still see it)

Took a while for the picture to load for some reason. My new computer should be better and faster at loading pictures. :(

so, what exactly is a smoke ring? Is that the depth that the smokiness penetrates the meat before you start hitting the unsmoked portion?

Smoke rings are produced by a chemical reaction between the meat and the penetration of the smoke. You will see a smoke ring on meat barbecued over a wood fire. It is a pink color that extends from the outside surface into the meat. It's thickness is dependent on several factors, such as the type of smoke and the duration of smoking. See the following section about chicken for a better understanding of the chemical reactions involved.

smoke has a reaction with the chemicals in the bone and meat. The meat turns a pink color even though it is thoroughly cooked. Ash is loaded with potassium and sodium nitrates. This reacts with oxymethyglobin to form nitrosaminoglobulins and gives us the pink color of hams, lunch meats, hot dogs, and smoke rings.
