    I don't get so worried about temps anywhere between 220-250* is fine don't drive yourself crazy pick a range not just a number and relax more and have a nice cool beverage. Hope you have a great smoke and post us some Qview

    Just posted on another thread about pulling your meat off the heat to soon. Kids wanted to eat so I pulled it to feed them and it needed another hour. They ate and I smoked for another hour and it was perfect. Give it time. Enjoy some cool ones.

    225-250 and you're good to go. It doesn't have to be exact and most likely, things will fluctuate. Just try and keep it in this range.

    [​IMG] I plan on having an option if things are going my way at first. I have a large foil pan and will transfer it to the oven foiled to finish if necessary. The first 8-10 hours are on the Silver Smoking blessing from above. I plan on pulling it at 165 and foiling with a 1/4 cup of apple juice like Dutch reccommends and taking it to 195 either on the smoker or in the oven if necessary.
