They sat for about 30 mins while heating up the WSM.
I then threw them in the WSM and tried to lock in a 250-265 degree temp, but it was extra hot and humid with wind gusts today. I made a wind shield, but it was running hot. This is also my 2nd smoke on it so I know this running hot is normal. It pretty much wanted to stay in the 280-300, so I let it be. I put them on at 4:30pm, ready to stay up until the late morning. I looked at them about 3 hours later.
And then two more hours later. so I had to put them in the pan with apple juice and foil them. At 11:40 pm, 7 hours and 10 minutes later they were at an IT of 195 so I took them out and they're resting right now ready to be pulled. I tasted a piece and it was incredible. I'm blown away by how fast I cooked them, but I couldn't stress over the WSM running hot. Growing pains. This is the finished product with drippings waiting to be pulled.
Will add a pic when it's pulled. And that everyone was my first Q-View. Hope I made everyone proud.
