I started my 12.69 lb packer @ 0500 this morning, I am using birch, hickory & apple.The rub was my own concoction, which I did last night & wraped in plastic and put in the fridge. The meat has been on the smoker now for about 6 hrs & seems to be doing ok, I am trying to keep the temp between 220 & 250.



 

 

I am planning on wraping in foil @ abot 170 & take it up to about 200 then wrap in towels & into the cooler for an hour or so. Like I said, this is my first one, actually my first smoke of any kind, so all helpful hints or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

You're just kidding about this being your first smoke, right?  That thing looks incredible.  Beautiful smoke ring.
