    [FONT='Calibri','sans-serif']Hi everyone,

    After watching Alton Brown I decided to try my hand at smoking some Boston butts here is my set up.

    ECB electric
    Mesquite Chunks
    Brine and rub via Alton
    I am following Meowey Basic Pulled Pork Smoke Guide
    SoFlaQuers finishing sauce

    I covered the water basin with foil and poked some holes in it
    But I have some questions about how long (time wise) will pork take to get to 100? They are about 4.5 to 5 pounds each.

    And dose anybody have a NC sauce recipe they would like to share?

    First off, you should head over to ROll Call and introduce yourself to all the members. It is like a tradition here.
    Welcome to the forum.
    Cook times are only guesses when smoking. A ton of variables could be used. As a general rule of thumb 1.5 hrs per pound (but this is general). Why 100?

    Why do you care how long to 100°? You got a bet going with someone?

    Make a Roll Call forum post and intro yourself, location, experience, equipment.

    I want in on the bet. 2.5 hours.
