  1. Hey everyone! I'm from Southwest Missouri and new to the world of smoking. I have been grilling for many years and finally took the plunge on a new Old Country Pit Smoker. Looking forward to learning from everyone on the forum.

    Hello all. I'm new to smoking also. Using an offset vertical charcoal smoker I've done two slabs of ribs and a whole chicken to perfection. Awesome bark on the ribs and mouth watering tenderness. I've just completed my first Boston butt and tried the advice of a friend by leaving the butt in a shallow roasting pan the whole time. 16 hours later butt was so tender I couldn't even pick it up to remove from smoker. I had to slide it foil pan and all on to a cookie sheet to get into the house. I think next time I will not use foil pan although it did allow butt to cook it its own juices. I think I will prefer a bark on the entire butt next time. What's your thoughts?
