I was throwing chunks of cherry straight on the coals.. but the would flare up to much.. so I had to foil them... much better... other than that.. she is sizzling away.. picture of progress to come shortly.. Im sure ill need to refuel soon..

    Pit temp 250* 

    Left Ham IT 117*

    Looking at the front and back wooden sliding doors, thats a great idea BTW, I am guessing this ain't your first rodeo.........

    I awoke this AM with a smile thinking I smelled pork cooking, must have been a westerly breeze. LOL

    Both Mikey and I just took the lid off.. was checking skin texture. its crispy..still firm to the meat but getting close where I think is gonna be great. .. and we both decided not to flip... I think if anyone wants some crispier skin I can throw it on the grill... 

    am I gonna have any problems ( i cant think of any) if I dont flip. I for one am just lazy to flip... but also for cosmetics.. she looks very pretty sitting exactly how she is... 

    any input?

    Take back the last TEMP update.. my probes were reading way higher.. 

    I re positioned both probes. Im gettting 150's in the hams.. and a 160 in shoulders..

    that sounds a little more like it..
