    I also use the 1.5 hours a pound rule but only as it applies to a larger piece of meat and to estimate when it reaches 180 degrees, not to estimate when it is done. Nest time aim a little higher and start with a larger piece of meat, maybe 7 pounds or so.

    That is not a long smoke time for a Boston butt. As the smoke goes on the temperature increase of your meat slows down. Also the meat might go through a stall time where it does not increase in temperature for a while. During this time, the fibers are breaking down as the meat tenderizes. It...

    Pulled Pork Failed smoke

    I have had issues when too cold meat was placed in a 250degree or so smoker. The temperature had gotten a little away from me and was a little too hot. The meat developed a rind. although the meat was tender inside after 16 hours (that's what it took to reach 200F internal temperature) there was...

    Pulled Pork Failed smoke

    What was the temperature of your meat when you placed it in the smoker? At what temperature did you set your smoker? I ask because if your meat was too cold and your smoker too hot, then the meat may develop a "skin" that prevents smoke penetration. It's a good idea to not place just thawed meat...

    Thanks, Wes for the suggestions. I would find it hard to believe that a fireplace can't keep up with the needs of this smoker that I built. It is so well insulated and takes so little coals to keep it up to temperature. See the first picture of my top post where the coals only cover 1/3 of the...

    Yes, JJ that is the direction that I was heading. I was going to use a burn barrel temporarily and build a outdoor fireplace long term. However, local ordinances now prohibit that. However, I can still build a fireplace indoors with full blessing of the fire marshal and code enforcement. They...

    Good suggestions, Dave, Jimmy J. and Tequilero. The suggestions seem to be detailed and involve burning wood carefully along with charcoal is one answer. Jimmy J seems to think a separate fireplace is a good answer. Shouldn't I go with my original plan and build the fireplace and burn Hickory...

    I di in fact do that during the first smoke. However it was only two small split pieces of Hickory. Obviously that did not help much.
