OK, we're new to this, done a couple of things with the MES40 but tomorow we want to get serious.
We want to smoke two pork butts, each about 7.5 lbs. Will start about 7 am, temp outside will be 25-28 degrees, but smoker will be protected by a shed. Pretty much we are following MEOWEY's sticky but still a few questions -- Do I put the 2 butts one above the other on the racks, or in foil pans? If on the racks do we collect the juices in a pan below, or wait till the foiling stage and just collect whats in the foil? At 1.5 hrs per pound do I count total poundage or for a single butt (i.e 10 hrs, or 20 +)?
