Those look NICE!! If they taste half as good as they look you'll have yourself an awsome meal.

Well the butts are in the smoker and everythig seems to be going along good. I dont have a heat problem now. Nice sight with smoke coming out of the big black box.

Temp on 2 of the butts is 50 degrees.

Now i am working on getting the heat thing tweeked by messing with the thingamajigs on the side.

Hope everyone is enjoying their Monday..I know I am

Looks like you got a full day ahead of you. How did you get you smoker temp up? Were you able to find lump charcoal? Good luck today and happy belated birthday!

It's looking good Mick, keep it going low and slow and you won't be disappointed. When you get to the plateau (if there is one) keep it steady. Nice tbs you got going.

I just looked at the pics again and see you found the lump charcoal. congrats!

Anyway, is that the only change you made to get the temp up? Just wondering. Good luck, you'll do great!

Looking real good Mick,

I am not anywhere close to being an expert as some of the other guys (and gals) on here but I would suggest in the future putting one of the temp probes in the bottom butt. You are closer to the heat source/water bowl so your internal temp could be much different.

But again....that is just my opinion. And it is probably worth $.01 in Aussie dollars.
