first butt might need help

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
well I don't know if its help but maybe some reassurance. I got a 9 lber and its been on for about 3 1/2 hrs and its at about 150 I think its going to fast but the thremo on the grate says about 220 what do I do? is it going to fast or am I just worrying to much.

Crack a beer. Drink said beer. Repeat. :{) 220's perfect. You MAY be at 150 a while ...

As Richtee posted, beer will get you through the plateau; you are smoking the butt perfectly.....

you guys sure do know your stuff. It hit 156 and it stalled and went back to 154 and is just sitting now. So I figured now would be a good time to throw a fatty on and in about 2 hrs I'll throw some ABT's on

Your doing just fine. Just as everyone else has said - crack open a few more of your PBR's and before u know it you will be eatin some great grub.

Got any pics to toss in as it goes on?
