'Morning gents: It's my third running with my Masterbuilt electric. I did Illini's mods this past weekend. (See my post with pics under Illini's "Mods that work...") I promised my poker buddies pulled pork tonight so I got a 6 pound butt, preped it last night and was up at 5:00 am to get it going. It took a while to come up to 225, since my covered porch is a very chilly 18 degrees this AM here in Illinois. I decided to use just 1/4 inch of Evan Williams bourbon in the waterpan, for a bit-o-flavor during the smoking stage. Loaded the recommended 4-5 soaked chips (again, per Illini...thanks for that great advice) and went back inside to get warm. About 15 minutes later, I was enjoying a nice cup of coffee, when BAM! A flash, some sparks, and the door blew open! Yikes! I raced out to find that pan of bourbon doing a nice "flambe" with blue flames and all. Whoa! I put that out with a dash of Bud just to be sure and got everything back in place. Lesson learned: better burn off the alcohol if I decide to use bourbon in the water pan. :oops: I'll update this post later today and let you know how my butt turns out. I plan to try the "foil/towel/cooler" trick once I get to 190. Question: should I wrap the butt in foil around 140-160 as some say, and let it finish like that in the smoker?
