    this was my second smoke. the first was ribs that came out great, my second was a fresh but that pulled great but tasted like chemicals. i smoked for about 6 hrs at 250 and finished wrapped in foil till it came to temp then let it rest in a cooler for an hour or so, it pulled perfect, the rub was one that i found on line. it tasted like i needed more sauce and less chemical. my cloths smell great, my meat, not so much. what happened.

    While you were smoking, was the smoke a thin blue line or puffy clouds !?

    And how much lighter fluid did you use to get the flame started or to keep it burning? What kind of fuel?
     
  4. Sounds like the creosote curse my friend. Keep that smoke thin and blue and you will be much happier with your finished results.

    Seoboke I hope you were kidding about the lighter fluid.

    Not knowing what equipment you are using I'm going to say that you had a creosote problem. Too much smoke will definitly cause the chemical taste. If you used lighter fluid - stop that and get a chimney to start your coals.

    Keep the smoke thin and blue - almost invisible if possible.

    ok, it was a fresh butt, the smoke seemed thin and blue, lump charcoal in a chimney starter for fuel, could i have smoked too long, how long for smoke if i finish wrapped in oil till done, my wife say the fridge smells like smoke, but the texture was perfect
