I'm going to smoke some pork butts today. First one I opened smelled bad so in the garbage it went.
I have a good one that we did not freeze and Amy just went to get more to replace the bad one. We did freeze the bad one which was on sale so I do not know if we did not thaw it properly or it was just old. Anyway I have the smoker on getting up to temp. Qview will follow. I had a little extra time since Amy is at the store getting some butt, I cleaned off the soot at the top of the smoker and scraped off some of the thick stuff on the sides. I cleaned out the bottom and put new foil there. Mine is an analog MES 30" that I have had since the summer but it gets used almost every weekend. It is only 48 degrees outside right now and pretty windy so this will be a little different then the normally warmer less windy days in Vegas.
I am going to use the 12" AMNPTS with the Pitmasters Choice-Hickory/Cherry/Maple pellets. I am filling it all the way. Amy is back so I'm going to rub some butt and carry on. Be back soon.
