I have had my smoker for a while now and have used it very little due to the fact I can't get it to give me a good smoke. I have an mes and I've tried a bunch of ways to get good and consistent smoke. I may have finally accomplished that today. Got a pork butt for.88 cents a pound this week and figured I'd give it a try. This time I used a soldering iron for the chips/pellets and it had send to work well. Been smoking for 8 hours now and had to fill up only 2 times. This has got me a butt that finally looks good, my last one looked OK but was very light on smoke. This one should be much better. It just hit 165 so I added some apple juice and foiled until done. I can't wait for it to finish I started it a bit late though. Here's the progress so far.
