    first pork butt

    Well I put my first pork butt in the smoker the other night and 22 hours later, WOW. It was a 6 pound boneless butt. I rubbed with a light coat of mustard and some Butt Rub. Took a few hours longer than I expected but the family really liked it. It could have used a little more smoke though, so...

    Thank you to the both of you. I was wondering what would be best to use in place of the original thermometer. Well my first try did not turn out very good today. My mouth feels like I just smoked a cigar . Oh well I had vent open only about 1/3 of the way and had smoke going the whole time. Next...

    New MES 40

    I just got a new MES 40 for Christmas. I am currently in the middle of smoking a pork roast. This seems to be a great smoker, how cool is the remote control.
