Pork is done in record time, 6 hours for a 9lb butt at 290F. It's cooling before I chop it up for sandwiches.

The bone pulled out easy and look at that smoke ring without using wood.

Tarps should work to get you past this freeze. Don't let the tarps touch the plants, that will put the frost on the plants and be useless.

Butt rubbed with hot sauce for a binder then seasoned. I'm trying out Pig Stand basting sauce for a spritz, it's just a flavored oil.

In Topic: Heat pad + plastic bag/condiment cup method?

Yesterday, 09:05 AM

That mat will work fine, I have 2 and use them every year. The description says 10-20 degrees higher than ambient temps so listen to Ed about over heating. I wouldn't put the seeds directly on the mat, they'll probably get burned up and won't germinate.


Here's another method I used last year when I was selling plants and would germinate many varieties at once. I used those cheap aluminum pans with holes punched in the bottom for pots, I could grow 25+ seedlings in there till transplant time. I bought a plastic tote with a lid for a germination chamber, set it on a seed mat and it worked great. I could fill it up and it would hold moisture good.
