Well, as it turns out, I called off sick today at work. I hadn't planned to, but I wasn't feeling up to the drive to work today, considering out weather. Anyway, by noon I was feeling much better. I had originally planned to throw this roast on the smoker Sunday, but I got tied up running errands to buy parts for the smokers Tim and I are building. Surely no regrets there. It's always a treat to meet up with Brother Tim.

I fired the smoker up around mid-day. Temps were around 24 degrees F. It really wasn't too bad since there was no wind. As of now, 4:15pm, the temp of the roast is sitting at 120 degrees. It's got a ways to go, but I'm having a good day!

My good camera is on loan to my son for a school project, but I'll see if I can find an old one here and take a pic or two.

I'll keep y'all updated.

I found an old beater of a camera. What I haven't yet found are some good pics of smokin'. At the moment, the roast is foiled and sitting at 161 and climbing slowly. Perfect!

Here's a shot of the current weather conditions. It's a bit chilly, but not too bad.

Good lookin' pork Kev!
You know the Okie won't approve of that boneless roast, no flavor. :ack2:
Looking forward to pics of the drums. And the drums in action.
Similar weather here, but colder. Ice tonight, can't wait!
I'm thinkin' the Keys.
