Thanks everyone for the encouragement and help. I could not of done it without you!
I wouldn't of gave up, not that easily. I was pretty frustrated, and my pregnant wife who is super picky on food atm wasn't helping.
Yes she did try it afterwards and said "Its not bad". Which wasn't mind blowing, but atleast edible. I brought some to work to get a better opinion as many of the guys here smoke meat. And they said it was good. I told them to be honest, but you know how people are!
I don't know, I used two different probes. One that was on a wire, the other just a normal meat therm. Both hit around 200'F, but I took it out right when it hit that, and tried to "pull" it about 10 minutes later. So possibly it just needed to rest. Or I didn't leave it at that temp long enough. *shrug*
Anyhow I liked the addition of brownsugar I made at the end, it smelled like bacon though. Although the touch of sweetness helped it not be as bland as my rub with just some random seasonings.
I chaulked this up as a learning experience. I just hope my wife isnt a hater of smoked flavoring, as both shots at this hasn't won her over.
