First smoke.....

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Got my new WSM all assembled and ready on Friday.  Seasoned up my pork butt last night and fired it up this morning.  Only a couple small issues with the first smoke.  Couldn't find my remote thermometer, so I just used the one on the lid though I know it isn't perfect.  Second issue was that I didn't put quite enough charcoal in for the entire smoke.  I had to add some for the last hour of the smoke.  All in all I call it a success, need to work on the rub a little bit but when you decide to season it at 11:30 at night you use what you can find.  I didn't get as many pictures as intended cause I was so focus on the task at hand.  I want to thank all you guys for you guidance and knowledge, it made my first smoke very enjoyable.

 

Using the minion method getting it fired up.

 

 

 

Here is a not so good picture of the finished product hitting the cooler.

I had read this on your responses before and I just kept saying that to my self as I was trying to get the temp set at the beginning.....and then when I wanted to take the lid off to see what it looked like long before it was done.

 

The pork was really good, had great smoke flavor but not too much.  I still need to work on the rub just a little bit but a great starting point in my opinion.  Thanks again for all the help guys!

Looks great to me. That bark looks delicious, I can chew on that all day and be a happy camper.
