As I said I'm doing my first attempt at smoking meat. I've chosen a 8# pork shoulder to try in my new mes30. I've seasoned the smoker the way it said in the book so should be ready to go. This is the way I plan on doing it. Preheat smoker to 250 deg and put roast in around 10 am. Will try to put a light smoke on for the first hour with Apple wood. Trying to have it ready to an IT of about 150deg. At about 6pm so a 8hour smoke. Will add apple chips to smoke it more the last 3 hours. What do you guys see will be the problem with the way I'm doing this. As I say it's my first time so always open to suggestions. Thx.
