Smoked a pork loin bottom roast.....

Odd cut of meat....The bottom was just about all bone and the cook time showed it....5 lbs and almost no fat when I pulled it, but lots of bones. I put it in the smoker at 12:30 after rubbing it down and injecting it with 1/4 cup of apple juice. Smoker around 300 for first hour then down to 250, I started misting it with apple juice once an hour about 4 hours into the cook...I wrapped it in foil  when the temp hit 170 and I had to up the temp back to 290 or so for the last hour and a half to get it to 195. Pulled it off the smoker at 9:30.....Yep 9 hours. Let is sit still wrapped in the foil for an hour and a half before pulling it apart.

I used charcoal, oak, pecan and some cherry wood chips....I got a load of hickory from Daddy for my birthday....Not sure what I'm gonna smoke first with it.

It turned out pretty good although I only had a bite or two when I pulled it, can't wait to dig after church tomorrow.

Now for the pics.....

Well my yaupon holly is still living....

Putting it in the ground seems to have worked....I really think they were just not getting enough water.

First smoke....

Two chicken halves....took 3 1/2 hours....The new charcoal basket is kickass. Chicken was nice and juicy. Not bad for my first attempt.

Here is our haul from today Dixie Hwy Yard sale trip....

Yep we brought back a truck load. Best buy of the day was an Oklahoma Joe's smoker.....Couldn't pass it up...Brand new in the box $200.  It took about 2 hours to put it together....Getting it out of the truck was a chore it's very heavy. It's not the best but it's better than your typical gas grill and should last longer as well.
