Today I am smoking 2 5lb Butts along with wings, which I just devoured, poor things never stood a chance and also have a whole bird on.
I also wanted to say I love these forums. Sometimes there is too much conflicting information but none the less you learn something everyday here. While trying to do my Butts I wanted to inject them and had safety concerns which is when I learned about the 40-140 guideline. I have been a nervous wreck today trying to maintain a good temp, windy and cool, with my smoker dropping to around 200 several times. I finally got the heat up in the box, moved my meats over to help get that temp up with in 4 hours. So far so good but I was curious as to what people do if they don't hit 140 in that amount of time for injected meats? Throw them away and start over? Keep going?
Anyways here is a starting pic. Others to Follow as time goes on!
