I recently (Saturday) bought my first smoker from Home Depot (Masterbuilt Pro Dual Fuel Propane/Charcoal Smoker). Yesterday, I set out to smoke about a 7 lb pork butt. Not knowing what I was doing, I thought it would take an hour/pound. Boy was I wrong! I started at about 11am with the smoker at between 200 and 225, with dreams of being done by dinner. At 10pm, with rain about to come down, I had to pull it out. It had plateaued at about 176. I ended up shredding the pork, which obviously was a feat in and of itself. I have another one of these bad boys in the freezer, so I will make sure to give myself plenty of time next time (I'm thinking at least 18 hours). The flavor of the pork turned out well! I'll take it for a first smoke, but obviously there is much to improve upon!
