Thread Starter 

My name is Tommy and I live in Arkadelphia Arkansas. I have a passion for grilling and smoking meats. I love the looks on peoples faces when they try my food and I see the genuine pleasure they get from eating it.

Hello from Hot Springs AR. Just acquired my father's Master built ES and am trying a pork butt in his memory and honor. Injected and rubbed last night and put in the smoker at 7:30 this morning at 235°… Going to check internal temp at the 4 hour mark. Am shooting for 180° when finished. I'm thinking about an hour per lb
Have I missed anything? Happy smoking all!

Good morning you going for sliced or pulled ? if you are going for pulled take it on up to 205 º. Probably going to to take a while my last couple of 9 pounders took about 12 hours at 225 º


Love Hot Springs, When my Grandparents left Amity, moved to Arkadelphia the to Hot Springs. We try to get up there a couple of time a year, We were three back in July.

Thanks for the reply Gary. Its usually pulled pork by default because when I get ready to begin serving, the 'pullers' show up. So I need to get my internal temp to 205° and then wrap it and put it in the ice chest for an hour or so, correct? Appreciate the input.
