This shot shows my Charcoal "Power Trio".....
I got to relax and spend some time with my family this weekend. Thursday, we had Ribeye steaks (pics above), Friday, I made burgers on the Weber gas grill, and Saturday we had a unique meal: Hot Dogs (on the Charbroil gas grill) with SWEDISH MEATBALLS (which my wife made inside)! Who would have thunk?

That was good, but shortly after we ate dinner, Elyssa and I made the dryrub for the pulled pork. This was applied to the pork shoulder, and sat until Monday...
Monday, Memorial Day there is only one really great way to wake up. Unfortunately, I did not get to sleep late. I got up at 4AM because I was so excited about smoking the pork shoulders. At 5AM, I began to light the lump coal, and then add the hickory to get it smoking. By 6AM, I finally got the meat on the smoker.
Stoking the fires.....
AAAhhhh-the almost final product-it just fell apart!
Pulled ight off the bone....
Fed 15 people!!!
The final thing was to deep-fry some vidalia onions. I had mine on a hamburger bun with the deep-fried onions, melted Cheddar Cheese and some Sweet Baby Ray's sauce.

BECAUSE-it's so AWESOME!!! There is nothing like creating the perfect dry rub for a pork shoulder, then smoking it for 3 hours, and slow-cooking it for another 22 hours. There is also NOTHING like when you pull apart the moist, smoky pork from the bone, and taste all the spices & smoke. There is also nothing like eating the first pulled-pork sandwich from the shoulder! And finally, nothing like seeing the enjoyment on everyone's face after they take their 2nd helping!
Yes-I have an issue. I like to cook. I like to smoke. I like to grill. I like to bar-b-que. More importantly, I like to EAT!
Enjoy the blog. I've included a weather link so you can plan your smoking project ahead of time. I will include pictures, recipes, and links dedicated to one of my favorite hobbies!
Can somebody PLEASE shout AMEN?
