    170 degrees in 5 hours?

    The search feature is hit-or-miss, so no one is gonna fault you for asking a question that has already been asked, BUT... You should really should have started a new thread, with your own subject line. I think you would have gotten far more responses that way. Welcome to the boards

    Thought a cut of meat was 2 pieces, oops, it's one

    Yesterday I bought what I though was 4-small Pork Shoulder Blade Boston Roast. I was planning on cooking them tonight/tomorrow, and promised 3 close friends that they could each have a butt. Upon further review, it turns out they a 2 Roasts of 9 pounds each. So now I am wondering what I...

    Mes 40 any tips for cleaning window

    I've had some success with soaking a towel in water, and placing it in the hot smoker for a while. Then I take my BBQ glove and wipe-down the glass with the piping-hot towel

    to much smoke?

    Two things: 1.  Make sure the vent on top of the unit is fully open.  You want a steady flow of smoke from the wood, around the food, and out the top 2. 220 sound low, but it depends on what you are cooking.

    Re-arranging the Forums Home Page

    OK, I realize this comes under the heading of OCD... One of the forums I read the most is Electric Smokers. Judging by the number of threads, the Smoking Supplies & Equip is pretty popular. But... There it is under Cold Smoking & Recipes. Ughhh. This requires me to scroll an extra 1/2 second...

    Electric smoker safe for deck?

    Just a thought... How much does 1 lb of cooked PP cost?  $2, $3, ?? How about every 2nd, 3rd, 4th smoke you package up a pound of PP and give it to your neighbor? Cheap Insurance, if you ask me!

    Giving the Dog a bone!

    p.s.  Never make the mistake I made as a lad... I gave my dog a bone, he dropped it in the freshly mowed grass, and it was covered with grass clippings I reached down to wipe-off the clippings.... I still have a scar 40+ years later

    Masterbuilt Smokers removed from the local Sam`s Club

    For many specialty items, like a Smoker, once every member who was gonna buy one has bought one, they do not order any more. It helps to create the "gotta buy it now" impulse buy. I'm not saying this is the case here...

    Pork Butt - Success with questions...

    Two words: Faux Cambro Which is better and more manageable? The butt finishes 3 hours sooner than you thought  OR The butt finishes 3 hours later than you thought ? I always time it for the butt to finish 2-3 hours before I plan to eat. Then I hold it in my Faux Cambro until it is time to...

    Pulled pork for SB

    Super Bowl is a registered trademark of the NFL (National Football League) While editorial postings here will not face scrutiny, notice how the businesses never refer to it as the "Super Bowl" The call it "The Big Game", or something similar.

    freezing pork butt?

    IIRC, Frozen Turkeys take 24 hours per 5 lbs of bird to defrost Given that a butt is a hunk-o-meat, I would allow a little extra time for complete defrost. I'd allow 3-4 days before you want to smoke one, take it out of the Freezer, and place into the Fridge. If it was not vacuum-packed, I'd...
