Perfect Smoke Ring

Excellent pink smoke ring on this pork butt (look at lower part of photograph)  just before it got shredded and mixed  with a batch of homemade BBQ sauce.

This three pound butt was cued over hardwood charcoal for 3/12 hours. Alongside to keep company were fresh from the garden taters (potatoes to the liberal artsy crowd) and umyuns (onions to you elistist snobs)

The sauce in keeping with the Tropic-Al's theme was island inspired. Tomato base, crushed plums, allspice, nutmeg, clove and a good dose of RUM along with several other secret ingredients
