My husband and I live near Wichita, Kansas. We just bought a GMG Daniel Boone pellet smoker. We have had a Cook'n Ca'jun charcoal water smoker and grill for many years, but hadn't used it for a loooong time. We bought a half hog and wanted to make our own bacon out of fresh pork side so we got it out and smoked the bacon using lump charcoal. Then we did a fresh ham. My husband was so frustrated with all the monitoring and refilling the charcoal container go keep the right temperature, etc. The meat did taste OK, but not great. So we decided to by the pellet smoker on Black Friday. Ever since then I have been reading online and trying to come up with the best way to smoke a Pike's Peak roast. Why I chose that for my first attempt I'm not sure. Anyway, tomorrow's the big day.
