I had planned on brewing a couple of smoked porters last weekend but some meat got in the way.  I smoked a brisket and pork shoulder and the temperatures got a little low overnight so it took way longer than I had anticipated to finish. Regardless, the meat is delicious and we vacuum sealed and froze 80% of it so we will have some delicious pulled pork and brisket whenever we want now.  I also threw some kosher salt in a pan and put that on the smoker so we now have some smoked salt to use as seasoning.

What this all means for brewing is I will be finally getting around to the porters tomorrow morning EARLY and hoping to have them both done by noon in time for kickoff!!
