Ok ok ok...
So I went to the store today and I bought my first
Butt ever. It weighs 20 lbs! It is a total monster, but it was cheap and the smallest one they had. The only thing I have smoked up till now has been chicken breasts.... this is a 20 lb pork butt and it is just my girlfriend and I
. If anyone is in the Bangor ME area drop me a line... might be able to get some free BBQ. I pray
to the BBQ gods (might be Uncle Bob I am praying to... heh) that shredded pork freezes well.
Ok, so I need a game plan... I have meat, I have Kingsford charcoal (not the best I know... only ones I could find... that or cowboy lump) and some Hickory chips. I think I am going to prepare it simply with a rub down of Garlic Oil, salt and pepper. I guess this is my only question really: How heavily do I salt and pepper the outside?
I will probably have to cook this monster all day tomorrow.
Any tips, advice, words of encouragement or anti-psychotics are greatly appreciated.
