Yo Diego, hello and welcome from another SoCal member. Make sure you work with calibrated therms for cabinet/smoker temps and also internal meat temps. It's all good my friend.

I've done quite a few 2.5~3lb chuckies @ 230* They take around 5 1/2 hrs, so yours will probably be longer. I say "probably" because each piece of meat has it's own characteristics ie; fat content, muscle fiber, water, etc.... It'll be done, when it's done. icon_wink.gif

BTW, I'm talking about taking it to 205* for pulling.

Any good ideas?

Hi Dave,
I don't know what type of meat you're going to be smoking. There are different types of wood that go tegether well. You can get an idea on the "Woods for Smoking" thread. Now what I like to do is soak some wood chunks in Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with Apple Juice. The longer it soaks the better. I've heard it describe that it's just like making a fine wine.
I hope that helps you out!
Take Care and upload some photos!
