After three hours of smoking I noticed that something wasn't right. Come to find out my "OEM" temp gage was not working properly. (I won't mention Kingsford's name). One burnt Point, rush to the 24hr superstore and the purchase of two digital thermometers later, I hope to recover from this disaster. The flat looks ok, but burnt on one side, the pork butt apparently had no idea what was going on, it looks fine. I hate being a Rookie!!!
