On Saturday I was able to pull off my biggest smoke to date on my duo. I was at Sam's on friday and bought 17 lbs of pork butt (was two pieces). Rubbed with mustard and coated with rub Friday night. I put it on the smoker at 2pm Saturday, took just a little over 16 hours to get the meat up to 200 deg. Was a long cook !!!

The day turned out to be colder then i had thought it was going to be (low 30's), I went through allot of fuel and even threw a few whole logs on to keep the temps up. I am still have trouble getting the minion method to work 100% of the time, I think one of my issues is i am starting with too much fuel in the basket. I used maple wood to smoke with.

I let the butt's set for a few hours (wrapped and in a cooler of course), was still over 140 deg when i pulled it. i ended up with just a little over 9 lbs of great BBQ (after some for breakfast of course).

So how long will the pulled pork keep in the fridge?

Here are some pic's.

The pack from Sams (great price $21.00)

All ready to go in the CG, I need to get a second digital therm,

My analog one shown here ended up very smoky, not able to see the number anymore.

Here is my supply of wood, from a tree that fell in my yard. i am in the process of cutting it into small chunks.

My cheap foil baffle.

I think I am using too much charcoal to start with, it chokes out at first.

All the time adding fuel and worrying about the temp was worth it.

A little over 9lbs worth ( after a good breakfast)

now I am going to buy one of those Seal-A-Meal things and freeze about half.
