Pork butt

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
This might be an odd ball question but if I want to smoke a pork butt but am not able to put in chips in as frequently as I need to because I have it going while I am at work, will it be just as effective if I can add chips 4 or 5 hours while I am on my lunch break?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Sandi

Not as effective but not a problem here is the answer to your problems.

A lot of people on this site use them including me and they are awesome for cold and hot smoking.

Most of your smoke needs to be applied in the first 2 or 3 hours. After that its kinda not as important. What kind of smoker are you using?

I'm not sure which model it is. It's a master built electric smoker.

Funny dougmays. Too bad they are all in school :)

Yes it will work, smoke for flavor can be added at any time during the cook.

I think it's the 30" one. I got it from my dad after he passed away so I'm not sure. But it's the one without the window. Probably one of the cheaper models.

The A-maze-n smoker is a good idea for future smokes if your going to do it while at awork. another thing you can do is start it at night so you can get the smoke absorbing while your home and then let it finish while your at work

i do that alot...start my smoker at midnight and let it go through the night. My WSM will hold temps for around 10 hours easily

Looks good. I added a few more chips while I was at lunch and took it out before I went back to work to wrap up and sit until I got home this evening. I will let you know how it turns out.

Thanks that will work great! It amazes me how long a wrapped piece of meat will hold its temp and redistribute juices in a cooler. IMO, many people don't rest it enough.

Good Luck,

Scott

Its getting late here, I meant "Think" that will work great not "Thanks" that will work great. Sorry. :-(

That's what I get for talking and typing at the same time.
