Well, I haven't fired off Big Bertha in a long time. I picked up a 2 pack of hawg meat and cranked her up! Total weight 18 pounds. All hickory splits and no charcoal. 250 degrees until internal was 210. No wrapping. I had forgotten how easy she is to smoke on even though she's a fatty at 1,100 pounds. Once heated up she will maintain. They turned out just right with a perfect amount of smoke flavor. Not overpowering but just right. Chopped it all up, vac packed and delivered it to 2 of my neighbors down the road. Both are elderly gents and love my smoked hawg meat. Take care and keep on smoking!!

Hawg...nice looking batch of PP but more importantly is the gesture of helping your elderly neighbors. That's just plain cool and a downright good thing to do.

Big Bertha got it going on!!! That pork looks great and wood fired is the way to go IMO.

Thank you. I agree. Never owned a Lang or Yoder but I think she stacks up well with those in my view. She's a monster but easy to maintain heat. No fiddling all the time with it.
