Doing a 15 pounder, and it’s coming along great so far. I had tons of temp differential issues until I put the second thermometer at the rack level and learned that I was running about 80 degrees cooler at the meat than I thought. It’s made a huge difference in bark development, when my top thermometer edges towards 300 it scares me, turns out I was closer to 200!

It’s done resting and I’m about to unwrap it. I’ll put some finished pictures up when everyone gets here and I cut it… but from the feel of it I’d say it’s a win

It was awesome. The flat was a little drier than I hoped but everyone else was impressed, the point wouldn’t even slice, it just fell apart. Also did smoked jalapeño poppers wrapped in bacon before everyone came over. All 15 pounds are now in bellies so I think it was a success. Figuring out the temp made everything come together so well that I’ll definitely be doing a pork butt next weekend.

I’ll have to post some more this coming weekend. Opening weekend of the football season definitely calls for some more off the smoker
