First time I was able to get a bark.  The retrofit seemed to make all the difference. took about 2 hours to get thru the plateau, and pulled it at 190°

got the larger chip holder.  it really does make a huge difference.  I also left the vent full open at the top and pulled out the chip loader a little.  I'm going to cut out the metal making the loader smaller.  think this will help with airflow.  Also, this was a mix of mostly apple pellets with some hickory added in.

Ahhh, gotcha. I still have the smaller chip holder. Thought I'd give it a shot before calling for the larger or going ahead and getting the AMNS. Happy smoking to ya!

Did you foil that butt ? Or did you cook it all the way to get that bark? I have some in right now and its about 165 so I'm wondering whether to foil it 

or let it go. First butt smoke with the MES .

No foil, and no water in the pan.  I won't pull the next one till 200°  foil won't hurt it, but may affect the bark.
