Good morning! A lovely one here.

I've been up since 5:30, actually. Had to wake up to fire the smoker for SMOKED PORK BUTTS TODAY! Woooo! It's been over half a year since I've fired up the ole' Weber Smokey Mountain. Far too long for my little meat-loving soul.

The smell of charcoal, smoldering apple wood, and cooking pork is perfuming the air outside, not to mention my husband and me. :laugh: It's a smell I'll never tire of. A smell that reminds me of all that I've been missing these past few months, stuffing my carbhole with carbs. I intend to smoke a lot more in the future.

The pork butts are currently sitting pretty at 162 degrees internal. What we're looking for (for the pork to be pullable) is a temperature between 195 and 205. We have a remote controlled thermometer that tells us the internal temperature of the meat, as well as the smoker temp. Pretty cool stuff.

It's a bit of work, but when you do it right...oh buddy. Let me tell ya.


Hopefully I'll have some pics to post tonight.

Embarrassingly, I think all I am going to eat today is my caloric goal's worth...in pulled pork. Pffff hahaha.

I swear, I'll eat vegetables on Monday. But for this weekend? PORK.

1243 calories, 0g carbs

Maybe some trace carbs from my pork rub: salt, paprika, smoked paprika, no-salt seasoning, little cayenne, and some cracked black pepper.

<3 Smoke.

Sadly decided the carb count is too high for the Italian meat sauce and have decided to make burgers instead. Will have it on an oopsie with 10g onion, mustard and a Romaine leaf

Almond milk pudding to replace the pistachios. Back to a much better carb count of 13g. Don't know what I was thinking with the other menu plan.:stars:
