    Just making this thread for those who love the Qview.  I'm going to be doing three smoke sessions over the weekend.  Two 6 pound pork butts today (was one 12 pound butt, but the butcher cut it in half), 5 racks of ribs tomorrow, and 2 whole chickens on Sunday.

    Heres all my meat.  I got it all form Fleishers (www.fleishers.com)  They sell only organic, pasture fed meat.

    I put em on the smoker about 2 hours ago.  Gonna make some of Dutch's wicked beans to put underneath em!  There will be more to follow as the weekend progresses!

    Great!  I'll have more pictures right before i wrap em up when they hit 165.

    Looks like the smaller butt plateaued at 142, hasn't moved in about 20 minutes, even dropped a degree at one point.  The larger butt is up to 132.  They've been on the smoker a little over 3 hours now.  Smoker is staying at a steady 225-230 degrees.  Smells fantastic!

    Hold strong.  It might sit on this plateau for over an hour.  Resist the urge to freak out and it will again rise.

    I was wrong on the plateau.  They both plateaued at 157, sat there for over an hour each.  Smaller one finished about 30 minutes ago, big one is at 195.  Will have pictures soon!

    I posted pictures of the finished product last night, but they don't look like they got approved.  I just finished prepping the ribs, they will be hitting the smoker in 30 minutes.  Will post those pictures right after this, hopefully they get approved.

    The ribs are done, and I had to tear people away from them to save a rack for the father in law.  That was the best meat I have ever cooked, I would not change a thing.  The best part is, I put sauce out for em, and noone used any.  Pictures will follow.
