I bought a new SnP to use at the house last week, and I finally had a chance to try it out this weekend. I seasoned it last week, and then put in a baffle, but things didn't go very well with it. For some reason, the baffle I made, didn't let much of the heat tranfer between the firebox and the main chamber. On Friday night, With a normal fire, I could only pull temps of 190*. I finally opened the door on the side of the firebox to let more air in, and the temps finally hit 250-270*, but the intense heat in the firebox made the paint blister off of almost the whole firebox. I finally finished the ribs and ABT's that I was making and they turned out pretty good....The ribs were a little tough, but I have had not experience with Spares...only Baby Backs. On saturday I removed the baffle and the temps were easy to control around 250* so I threw on 2 Boston Butts at 7am and hoped they would be finished by 3pm so I could make my Tee Time. At 3pm the butts were only at 180* so I went ahead and pulled them off, double wrapped them in foil and towels and threw them in a cooler. After we played golf we came back to the house for some Que and the pork was too tough to pull, so I cubed it up into small pieces. The flavors were still good and I had a good half-inch smoke ring. My friends said they loved it...but I'm going to make them some more next weekend, so they can try some real good tender pulled pork.
