First Smoke

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I put a 6lb Boston Butt on at 7:30 this morning, temps on the smoker
were hard to keep below 275 for the first couple of hrs. Now I have it
running about, using hickory chunks and put the last on at 135, will not
add any more.
On the smoker

31/2hrs into the smoke, meat temp 142

No, I drilled that hole and put a nylon push bushing in it, I also put a thermometer in the dome that reads in degrees and put a vent in the top
heres a link to my mod pics

Just saw that ultramag already posted it

Looks excellent Blackhawk. I wish my first smoke had went that well. Did you try SoFlaQuer's finishing sauce w/ it?

No, I read about that late Sunday night and didn't have time to get the
