I think that's a good smoke ring.

I see you have a gas smoker as well.  What temperature do you try to keep it at?? I am going to be attempting my first Butt on a similar smoker on Monday.  Do you utilize the water pan?

Thanks!

Adam, most of us go for slow and low and shoot for a smoker temp of 225*-250*.  At that temp you should plan on about 2hrs. per lb.  Alot of us here have switched from water to sand in our gassers.  Sand will help keep steadier temps, water will only get as hot as it boiling point then evaporate.  Refilling the water pan can become a real pain on long smokes.  What kind of gas smoker do you have?

Nope. I just cover it with foil to keep it from getting nasty. Been using the same sans since spring.
