Smoke meat anyone?

Well I'm back to share what hubby and I did from early this morning, we prepped 150lbs of pork butt(store bought) and made smoke meat. We had the meats cut up this past Thursday evening, had it soaked in our special sauce and today we had it smoked. It took 3 1/2 hours to smoke but prepping it was the longest, we were up wee this morning.  Each strand of meat was hung up with the large paper clips with took (3) boxes of 100 in each one.  Then starting the fire, which we use Ohia wood.  Hubby built this smoke house several years ago, we both use to go feral pig hunting every weekend up on the high elevation of the Hamakua forest.  Sometimes we would hit 1 or 2 pigs and boy that would be the hardest to pack down from the mountains... Hubby would skin it and would have to pack it in burlap bags and hike it down the river banks to get to our truck.... Those were the good old days, we haven't done that in such a very long time, I don't think I can do it now... With him working (6) days a week we don't have that extra curricular time for our weekend sports activities any more... LOL!  Thank God, hehe!!
So here's the outcome of it... We also had two special orders for some friends of ours that have some graduation parties coming up..  This is what's for dinner tonight!  Yummy!
Back of our lot, that is our neighbors house on the opposite side
