Hi

I think the forum members are very happy you like your finished product.

After you fully explaining your feelings about help , guidance advice or comments on there past mistakes you probably won't get any P/M's or comments to your posts. I am sure no one wanted to annoy you. free advice should be taken as that.

I just looked at my list of private messages and found I never sent you one. Glad I didn't annoy you

Good smoking to you. Jted

So go light on the smoke.  


I find your account very funny, especially in light of the what I've read on a couple of sites that you can't overcook a pork butt. Apparently from your experience you can oversmoke one but not overcook it!

You're right, People shouldn't be PM'ing you & telling you how much smoke to use.

If you like it heavy white, you can use it that way.

I have warned many Newbies about using smoke that is too heavy, but there's no rule that says you can't do it.

If I would have gotten to this thread earlier, before you expressed your love of heavy white smoke, I would have suggested it was too heavy too, but I won't do that now that I know you like it.

I wouldn't get too mad at them though, because if you do anything that is thought to be harmful by others, they might not want to be putting you down in front of everybody, so they might PM you.

 

I would just say, "Thank You, but I like it that way".

I'm sure they mean no offense or disrespect.

One has to admit the photo did beg for attention, although in retrospect it was unnecessary, and posted solely for the cool factor.

Evening..... HEY !!!!! sometimes folks don't exactly read into a thread, what message you are trying to convey.... They see the first post, ASSUME what they should answer..... There you go....

Personally, I like the smoke level to be what you can see in the load of cheese.....

My AMNPS in the mailbox often puffs like an old clapped out small block Chevy, has looked very similar to the OP pix. Everything I have had from it was tasty. But I have since moved away from the MES and started using my BGE more. Will be finishing my UDS today so that will be seeing some use as well. Will be building a RF here soon as well. Give me real wood smoke or give me death lol...

Rick, Yes indeed one can ruin a butt. Coming out of the smoker, it was a thing of beauty to be sure.  And had that wonderful hickory aroma  I love so much. However, it just was not possible to shred it/pull it without contaminating the interior meat. By the time I had it fully shredded and incorporated the outer with the inner, it was too late. I have a dog that will eat anything, and he gets his share of what is smoked, but on that eventful day, he sniffed, he licked, he walked away with an empty mouth. I don't know who was more disappointed me or the dog.
