1st smoke complete have question

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

 I smoked a pork line(wrapped in bacon, 1st time ever smoking anything) in my new ECB w/ all the mods done. Got it to temp with in 15min and she cooked steady at 240.question is at 2.5 hrs the meat was at 250 degrees( read w/ 2 different digitals) does that sound right? Every thing i have read says it takes 3 1/2 to 4 hrs.It was not a very big loin. Also wife thought i should put it in oven for a little bit< is that necessary? Thanks

If the meat is @ 250 and the thermos are accurate it is way done.   Pork loin can be eaten @ 170ish.  Again you need to check your temps.  What did you use to check smoker temps?  Always go with temp not time.

I will second that, always go with temp.  I always use two thermos to check my final temp and i usually have a third on standby if I question the first two.

I hope you did not pay top price for your roast. @ 250 degrees it would be like eating a shoe

That makes three of us. How many pounds was the pork loin? I think you might need to check that smoker gauage?

How many lbs was the loin? How were you taking the meat temp?

oops, was not 250 it was at 150.I used 2 didifferent digital themos. ok so its temp not time,that helps.I have been reading hundreds of pages on here to learn and would read of 12-18 hr cooks and just did not think it could have been done in 2.5 hrs. it tasted awesome and got compliments from everyone who tasted it. all in all i call this a successful 1st smoke thanks to this site. I am already hooked on smoking and have just finished my build of a UDS.cant wait to fire it up tomorrow.Thanks

at 250° no way that would be 2.5 hrs.

 Sounds like your temps are higher than you think.

I have to agree with Bob and Jerry on this one.

Sounds like your therm was on the metric system to me. 250* and that would be boot leather.  Keep on truckin! PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif
