Smoked Pork Butt

I'm smoking a 5lb. pork butt in a Bradley original electric smoker with apple wood. I rubbed her down with honey and mustard first and then put on a generous coating of sweet and smokey rub.

I plan on a total cook time about 5hrs (roughly an hr/lb., or whenever the meat probe hits 195), with 4hrs of that being on smoke at 235 - 250 and the rest in the oven. I very much agree with what TS said on meat only able to take so much smoke. Plus it makes my house smell so damn good to finish it in the oven.

What a great nugget, right there.

Spam, Eggs, and Rice

I haven't had this in a long time so this is on the brunch menu for today. Don't knock it until you've tried it...they eat The hell out of this in the Hawiian Islands. The link below is a pretty good article and recipie. If you like a little spicy use spicy spam. If you don't have fish sauce just drive on without it. Health food it is not. Comfort food it is.

Spam is very bad for your health.

Two reasons I would not eat it, it's processed meat, second reason, its processed meat.

Learn to eat "fresh"..... like sausage, get a meat grinder and make your own, fresh. (Trust me its not rocket science.)

Or indulge very rarely.

Spam is right up there with terrible foods like "sugar water" (soda). The chain needs to be broken with these foods, do not eat/drink them.
