I have been checking out all the different recipes and opinions for a few weeks waiting on my new pit, but I couldn't wait any longer. I figure she got tired of hearing me whine so my wife brought home a temp solution for me. She brought me a New Braunsfels smoker home tonight. She found it at a yard sale for $20..... So tonight I put on two butts (avg 6Lbs) about 1 AM. Having a tough time keeping the temp right so we'll see what happens. This is my first experience smoking have always grilled before so.... Meat has been on for 2 hours and is at 115 degrees. I feel like it is going a little to fast. I am trying to follow some of the instructions I have seen here, but for a newbie, one thing I missed was how to set the initial temp. I got to 300 degrees way quick. Guess to much lump... I have been heavy spritzing with AJ and cider vinegar mix about every 45 minutes. Using apple to smoke and it is going well. Have light to moderate steady smoke. Since this is my first, not yet sure if I have too much but we'll see. Sorry I don't have Qview this time (at the start) but I'll post final results (including Qview) along with opinions.... good or bad later. I am also doing some ABT's and Dutch's Wicked Beans. Dutch your beans are good before they get smoked, so I know at least one thing on the menu will be great.
