It's been a while since I've done any smoking...a little less than a year. I've really impressed my new girl friend with my cooking skills and don't want to let her down now! We are also having some out of town family and friends coming. I have two butts to smoke for tomorrow nights dinner. They are both around seven pounds. I'm planning on dinner to be around 5:30 or so. How long can I keep them wrapped in the the cooler once I pull them out of the GOSM BB? I plan on starting them around mid-night, too late or too early? I was figuring about 2 hours per pound, but will use the thermo and adjust accordingly. Smoking at 225* using mesquite wood chunks. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.
My girl friend is a photographer, so I'm sure there will be q-view in later posts!
Thanks in advance. Hope everyone has a safe & great 4th. Happy smoking!
