    Welcome to SMF jsdimp. Good luck on the first butt smoke today and remember to keep it low and slow. Those things hit a plateau and will appear as if the temp has stalled but it's a normal process of the smoke.

    Definitely want to see pics of the rig and hopefully, of your smoke today!
     
  6. Thanks for all the input, it came out awsome,abig hit. I think I had it too hot because it was done in 6 hrs. it was a 8.2lb. bone-in butt. [​IMG]
