  1. Hello everyone my name is Bob. I live in Culver City,Ca. I really like to BBQ, and my wife of 33 yrs decided I should step it up a notch and bought me a smoker for Christmas. Its a Smokey Mountain Series Great Outdoors, not sure what model but its a rectangular box, propane burner, a wood chip box, water tray and three racks. I smoked a flank steak and it turned out great. Needing more information I found this forum. Looking forward to making some awesome smoked meats!!!

    Welcome from Arizona.
  5. Ok, I have a question. If I have a pork shoulder boneless will that change the basic 1.5 hrs per pound?

    As a rule, no.  

    Just remember that 1.5 hrs/lb. is only an estimate, to be used as a rough guide when planning your cook.  Every cut of meat has a mind of its own, which is why its best to cook to temp and not time.  I usually allow for 2 hours per lb. on pork butts/shoulders, with an extra hour added (what Chef JJ calls 'CYA' time).  If it gets done faster, it can always rest for several hours before pulling with good results.
