    1. old smoker 2.Fathersday gift new Medina River 3. 8 pound pork butt after 6 hours  4. all done 5. bone pulls right out 6. ready 7. rubbed and ready i knowits out of order.  anyway pork came out great family loved it. i learned a few things about my smoker. the temp gadge at the top of my smoker was reading 225 but actual temp grill level was  205 so this was a 16 and a half hour smoke. so from now on i will keep the smoker at 250 on the top temp gadge. any comments on the offset smoker or tips any of you have please jump in and let me know.

    I run two temp probes at meat level to be sure my setup is giving me even heat distribution from side to side.  Heat distribution from side to side can change as your chamber temp goes higher or lower as well.  On my unit the lid temp is about 60 degrees off so I only use that as a quick check.  Also, try the search tool for offset smoker modifications which might be very helpful.

    Good luck and good smoking.
