On Monday, after Bec and I were exhausted from our photo shoot, Jesse served up some mean smoked pork butt. He spent quite a long time setting up the smoker, heating it with his fancy wook chips and preparing the pork with a rub of sugar and spices. The smoking of the meat took a few hours.
I have had smoked foods at restaurants and my mom has smoked salmon on cedar boards in the grill, but this was the first time I've seen a smoker and learned about the process. Some people really enjoy the smoked taste and some don't. I know for sure that I do and I can't wait to try more from Jesse's smoker.
For all the details on the process, check out his smoking blog!
