Last weekend I did an inaugural smoke on my new wood burner. Ribs and Chicken. All turned out great and built my confidence that I could regulate temp relatively well on the unit. ... Very different than my MES or even the MINI. I love using both those units but there is something great about the behemoth. It's a bit more challenging to use but it is an enjoyable challenge. And clearly has better flavor on the meat.
Next step was to see how I'd do a smoke that would take longer than Chicken and Ribs. So for a longer smoke I chose a 9 pound Pork Butt. I knew a Pork Butt would be much more forgiving if things went sideways!
The best Bark I've ever had on a PB!
A 16 hour smoke. It turned out Perfect!
