Really been learning a lot reading the forums the last few days. I am new to smoking but have been called a master grill chef by my guests.
Just bought a Masterbuilt 30" Gas Smokehouse. Started my Pork Butt this 6:30 this morning @ 250. Been going all day and currently (17:30) it is foiled and running about 185 internal. Can't wait to see how the smoke flavor is. I am a bit concerned because I used apple and hickory chips in an 8" cast Iron skillet and did not see much smoke coming out of the box. The chips did get consumed and I used about 6 cups or so so I know they did something.
Looking forward to continuing to learn this craft with the help of the forums. Great stuff so far..
I do have a Maverick 733 ordered so that will help having a box and meat temp. I am also planning on installing a needle valve or adjustable regulator since the lowest I can get the box is 250 with the vent all the way open (ambient temp 75 and breezy)
