How much pellets do I use to smoke a 6lb. pork picnic?

Fill the tray and when the meat is done, knock the burning ones back. You can not depend on a certain amount of pellets, the IT of the meat will let you know.

What smoker are you using?

Maybe close some intake air.

Ok, here's what happened to me last night. Left smoker (mes30) going last night. Power went off don't know what time, went to bed at 10:30pm woke up at 6:30am and IT was 150. You think meat is still good? I have it in the oven now.

Didn't take temp. It was going for 3hrs. Was going to take temp when I got up at 6am. It was a 6lb picnic. It's in the oven now and IT got to 170 pretty quick. Meat should be ok, right?

If it went up that fast in the oven I would say yes. Smell it then taste a small piece to be safe

I'm sure one of our safety experts will be around shortly. The main concern I'm sure they will have is if you reached the 140 in 4 rule. @Chef JimmyJ what are your thoughts on this one Chef?
