What a hit.
I smoked 20 lbs, without a trace left now.
It's only the second time ever smoking meat.. and I'm learning in leaps and bounds. Even got my required mods done beforehand.
I got rid of the Mickey Mouse "warm, ideal, hot" temp gauge and got a real one.. only to discover that the hour of 225-250 of smoking I did was actually 325-350 when I opened it up and looked at the other oven temp gauge I had sitting on the rack.
Needles to say, about two lbs of featherbones that were right by the firebox were crispy critters. But the dogs sure loved them.
