My first smoke!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Bought my smoker a week before the 4th.I wanted try it out for myself before I offered to have company over but my wife went ahead and invited some friend over and the game was on... I read a lot from this  web site (by the way its the best place to get GREAT advise  and help.  We wanted to eat around 5-5:30  so I planned it all out as to when I had to have it on give or take a few hours....I put it in the smoker a 4am with apple chips at 225.I added chips about every hr. I had a thermo and by 11:30 it was at 165 and that is the first picture I took. Looking good I thought. Anyway by about 3:30 it was 195-200 so I did what I read in these forums and wrapped it in foil and put it in a cooler with towels stuffed around it..When every thing else was done I pulled it out of the cooler. I could not believe it was still pretty warm. Got it in the house and let it rest a bit before I pulled it. Sorry not pictures of that though..

I just want to say Thanks for this Great site and the Great help one can get here. I told my brother about this place so he's up and reading too....porkbutt.jpgporkbutt2.jpg

lol...guess it depends on how you define 'bad'---I call it a 'quality of life' issue...

Great job on your first smoke looks real good.  Smoking meat is actually healthy for you in my opinion icon_razz.gif
