    Smoking two 10lb butts today. It was 17 F out with a wind chill factor of -2 when I started the coals this morning at 6am. Winds are anywhere from 25 - 35 mph. Good thing the Bandera is heavy, wouldn't want to have to be chasing the smoker around. Brrrr Nellie! [​IMG] Even with gloves on my fingers were hurting by the time I got back inside.



    Butts were rubbed and injected with ShooterRick's SBC. Will be smoking at 250 (hopefully) with a mix of white oak and cherry.

    Good Luck with those monsters Dawn, We're getting the same weather but with a ton of lake effect.
    I'm looking forward to the finished Q-view

    Looking good Dawn. How's the smoker holding temps?
     
  7. I put 2 butts on last night and it was -26 w/out the wind. My Mavrick temp remote froze.

    She's holding temps great, hardly any issues at all. Biggest problem is me not paying too much attention to the temp, lol.

    Put a pan of Dutch's beans in a little while ago and used my green thermapen to check the temp of the butts. They were both at 152.



    Love the color on these!

    Looking good!

    Is there a difference with the color of the Thermapens? I was given a black one as a Christmas present.

    As long as it's the same model of thermapen, they all work the same.

    You are a brave soul Dawn. I was whining while grilling some burgers.

    Butts are foiled and in the oven, I'm tired and frozen.
