    New to smoking but have always wanted to try.  Ran across an mes 40" on black Friday for 199.00 at Academy thought it would be a good time to start.  Today is my Youngest kids 22nd birthday so I put in a butt early this morning Hope it will get done before too late.  Love the site have learned many things from reading now if I can put them to good use.

    Love pulled pork, I cook mine at 225 until the  internal temp is somewhere between 195 and 200 I pull it off wrap it in foil and a couple old towels and put in a cooler for about an hour. When I take it out I reach and grab the shoulder bone and it slides right out. Perfect pulled pork. Take a couple of big forks or (bear claws if you have them) and pull it apart. Pretty simple.

    Good luck
