I don't get the question?

 

Pork loin and pork loin roast are the same.  Maybe bone or bone out?

 

No need to worry.

 

Just don't treat it like a butt.

 

Your loin is a better cut for a roast.  Not at all for pulled pork.

 

Good luck and good smoking.

Hey, thanks for all the help. I'm still having issues though. When I click reply the page refreshes to a reply box that doesn't have that nice tool bar on top. Its just blank and allows me to type in it and hit preview or submit. I hit preview and I still don't see the toobar. Any suggestions? I am using Windows XP and Internet Explorer.

I had that happen at times..... the page wouldn't fully load for some unknown reason... ( I don't totally understand computers )...  so I reload the page....   I have found Google chrome loads faster and has about 99% fewer  problems than XP and IE.... I try not to use either of those systems any longer...  Switch to Chrome or some other system.....  A lot of headaches will go away....   Dave

Oh yeah, one more thing.  My amnps was filled with 1 row of cherry pellets.  At two hours I noticed it was all burned up.  Isn't this supposed to burn for around 4 hours?  I had vent 100% open, chip loader pulled out 2 inches.  AMNPS was sitting on drip plate over the hole.  I had TBS for at least the first hour that I was really watching.  Not sure when it was actually done burning.  Somewhere between 1-2 hours.  Next time I'll pack it full no matter how long I'm cooking to see how far it gets.

 

Also, could the lasagna tinfoil pan I put on the first rack to catch drips be the reason my temp wouldn't get above 200 (heat blocker maybe)?  I turned the smoker setpoint up to 275 max and the temp wouldn't go higher than 200 on the analog oven gauge and around 230 on the mes remote.

 

This leads to my next question...  My attached meat probe is way higher than my analog meat thermometer.  My attached ambient thermometer is way higher than my analog oven thermometer.  Should I be trusting these analog thermometers over the MES's digital stuff?  What is the best way to figure out what is actually accurate? 

 

Rookie in need of some help,

If the pan was almost as big as the meat grate, it would block the heat from rising and overheat the bottom part of the smoker.. and cause the pellets to burn too fast....
