That's some serious good looking pig you have lawdog. It's going to make some great pulled pork. I can't wait to see the pictures from the smoke. :thumbs up:

internal temp @ 100* at 430, started spraying with apple cider.
my first attempt at rolling a fatty was a disaster. used marinara and cheese as filling, just couldn't get it to hold together. I should have used 2 lbs instead of one. I hope I saved what looks more like a couple of stuffed meatballs.

I wonder if you might try using seasoned tomato paste as opposed to marinara. Its got a good deal more structure to it abd you could always smoke some marinara and server it over the top. cooking th marinara down a bit would prolly help too. It's just kinda tough to roll liquid up in sausage.:msn-wink:

pulled the "fattys" they on't look pretty but damn they taste good. My wife doesn't like breakfast sausage or marinara, but I only got a pic of the 2nd one cause the first one was destroyed to quickly.
6 hours in and butts are @ 149 and spitzing every hour with aj. gonna foil @ 160and throw back in.
again.......more to come

Great pics, Lawdog! That marinara fatty looks good to me. Maybe you could drain some of the liquid from the marinara first. Might help.

As for the butts, send mine to ... :msn-wink:

Awesome food, awesome pics, bro!

Well folks,
pulled them off the smoker about 130am @196* enternal, left them wrapped and into the coolder the went, got up early this morn (had to pull a couple hours of sleep) and pulled them.
the bone just pulled right out of both and they just fell apart in my hands.
definatly much better than the one I had tried before.

That is fantabulous. The best food always comes with the least amount of sleep. Thanks for sharing your day with us. I now have to go raid my PP stash.
