Yikes! I put my butt (10lbs) in the smoker this morning at 5am at 130* to dry and warm up. At 7am I added the AMNPS loaded with dust and bumped the temp to 225*. I checked it at 7:20 and 7:50 and had a nice TBS both times. Then I got busy and didn't check for 2 hours. When I go out there at 9:50 I immediately remembered I had forgotten to return the chip loader after doing some cold/warm smoked buckboard bacon this weekend. This is what greeted me.
Heavy and coming out FAST
I couldn't snap the pic fast enough to get the full amount of eye burning smoke
This is what is left after just under 3 hours
So is my butt a goner? I don't know when the heavy stuff started but at most it lasted 2 hours. I put the loader back to it's rightful place and I know I should take the AMNPS out and start some new dust. Any more ideas? What would you do? Thanks guys!!
