Went with the 3-2-1 method. Think I`m getting the hang of it. Got the smoke under control. Not as tender as I had hoped but not bad for my 2nd smoke
Did not give them a tug. Didn't want them to fall apart on the smoker (turned out that wouldn't have happened at all!) They smoked between 250 and 300. Still working on keeping the temp steady and learning the ins and outs of the smoker.
