I got a smoker for xmas, and the weather stayed below 32 for what seemed to be forever, as I really wanted to use my smoker! When it finally broke, I smoked a 14lb turkey, it came out really good. I've also smoked jerky, bacon, pulled pork, and a ham. The bacon turned out great, but I had some problems with the pulled pork, I made a wet rub that I injected into the pork, then I mixed my dry rub with mustard and rubbed it all over the outside, it was a pork roast, not butt or shoulder and only weighed 21/2 lbs. got the smoker up to 200 and put in the meat, I kept a close eye on it so the temp wouldnt fluxuate to much as it was still cold out. After about 5 hours the internal temp. was still holding at 145 so I took it out of the smoker and wrapped it real tight in foil and put it in the oven at 225 for another 2hrs. when it finally read 160, boy oh boy, talk about bark thats about all there was! I got enough meat to make 4 sandwichs, and it was still tough compared to how it would come out when I did it in the oven! Any thoughts as to what I did or didn't do?
