2nd attempt- pulled pork w/ q-view - Page 3

post #41 of 53

Stall was my first guess also; But not knowing the right temp (who knows?)

Check Wal Mart, Lowes or one of those type stores...Lowes carries a Taylor brand which is a pretty reliable probe...it may save you a little shipping cost and you won't have to wait to get it.  Do some poking around in the forum for more information and plan out your next smoke, it'll be worth it and will provide you some delicious Q.  


Keep the faith...you can do this fairly inexpensively, you've already got the smoker to get you started, don't give up!!

Anddd the end result






I know it isnt the best pork ever made, but Ide be lying if I said I wasn't a bit proud of myself for getting to this point, it wasn't the smoothest smoke, but in the end I am happy with the results. I got a piece with some nice bark on it and man I had to stop chewing for a moment so I could take in the wonderful flavor. I know I still have allot to learn, but for now, I think its time for a pulled pork sandwich ;) (and then some sleep!) Thanks so much for the help guys, I appreciate it and I look forward to continuing my learning process here.

Looks good!  It is always a learning process.  Just think how difficult it would be without this website and all the good people on it helping us out.  I would definitely make the mods to your smoker and get a good probe.  It makes all the work your doing so much easier and efficient. 

Can't wait to see the next Qview!

Hey guys as for extending my stack to get near the grate, I got some sheet metal and I have it cut to the point where this extension is hanging right above the grate, almost literally touching it, how much more am i going to want and cut it, should it be hanging straight down an inch above the grate or what?

so basically, if ive got it to where sliding the grate under it would be a bit tricky because the top of the grate will skim the rim of my attachment, thats all good?
