Hey I resemble that guy. Now you can use the 3-2-1 but I have found that smoking theses big ole things it better to smoke them by temp. I do keep the first 3 hours and then I foil them with a good amount of liquid in the foil and take them for about 2.5 hours but I go with the temp. When they hit about 190° i'll take them out of the foile and let them finish to about 205°ish maybe alittle more and then into the cooler for atleast 30 minutes if now more. You will like them believe me.
