    Well, things fell apart

    At least for the pork butt, the bone slipped right out, fell apart and was moist and tender.

    I had a patient fan awaiting her treat, as always it fun to see her carrying around a bone the size of her head.

    The brisket turned out good too, but had started with a new brand of pellets, which kept jamming up the feed and messing with my temps. Also was a sugar maple pellet, so didn't get much of a ring. This went into the fridge and will run it through the slicer tomorrow night.

    Killing me too, Josh. I gotta invest in the meat and give it a go. Brent, I am going to need remedial instructions. Meat is too expensive to make mistakes. Besides, I don't have a dog!

    Brent's right...brisket is pretty easy if you have a good smoker and good temp control. And if you toss a bone like that out in your yard, rest assured you'll have a dog soon enough.

    (Personally, I don't like to give dogs bones. I had a friend who worked at a vet clinic who told me too many stories of surgery on dogs with perforated intestines that were caused by bone fragments. I also had to remove a knife-edged bone chunk that was wedged between the rear molars of one of our dobermans years ago, and that also helped to convince me to stop giving my dogs bones. That said, I doubt Darren's little dog is at much risk of hurting itself with that pork bone. Unless he drops it on his little foot, lol)

    Sliced up all the brisket tonight, looks dry here, but it was in the fridge over night to make slicing easier. I heated some up for dinner, boy was it tender and juicy.

    Had 5 plate fulls like that, vacuum sealed, and froze 4 of them (about 1 1/2 lbs each) for later consumption.
