First pork butt ever, first smoke in the new home built plywood propane smoker.



After an hour wrapped in the cooler



The bark was like eating candy, got a big smile from momma & the dogs.

I used a camp stove that I have had for about 15 years, then had to buy about $60 worth of lumber, I also had the corrugated steel for the inside. So I guess my out of pocket cost was around $60-$70, oh I also had a roll if insulation laying atoun that I used. The smoker worked great, I was able to hold the tem steady @ 250º I dont have a thermometer mounted outside yet so I had to open it quite a bit to check temps, but it was very quick to recover the lost heat. I know now what kind of temp I can hold so I won't have to babysit the next smoke so much, I will trust it more. But even as much as I had to watch it for the first smoke, it took much less tending than the fire heated drum smoker I was using, besides I had a good time building it.
