I use a ratio of 70% hickory to 30% apple for the time it takes to be done.
Staring at the temp display on the Maverick is like staring at the wall clock! It brings time to a screeching halt!!
Nothing wrong with that !!!
As long as you don't Rant about it taking so long, like many guys do.
No foil can add hours to your smoke, but if you got the time, who cares.
You shouldd be OK:
I just looked, on my Step by Step, I bumped mine to 260° when I foiled at 165°, and it took only 2.5 hours, not counting resting time to get to 203°. Then another half hour resting took it to 208°.
I was reading your Step by Steps before I got started on this.
My emergency plan, should I hit a stall somewhere soon... If it looks like I wont hit temp by about 7-7:30 pm, I will foil it so I can get some sleep before work tomorrow. Otherwise, I can stay up til midnight and enjoy the cool summer night air!
