welcome to SMF!!!   Most everyone here smokes to temps. i like to use fruit woods on pork

figure 1.5 to 1.75 hrs per lb. is a good guess.

 Go to the pork section and you can read all about pork butts also while there look for dutch's wicked beans . great for the smoker.

smoked some chicken today. used hickory as my wood and smoked the chicken for a good couple hours. I liked it but the kids said it was too smokey so next time I will shorten the smoke time and finish up in the oven. Also decided to try apple wood next time to see what flavor is added. Love the smoker and think that we will get lots of use from it.

thanks for the link, emailed the manufacturer and within 15 minutes they sent me a PDF of the manual. Couldn't believe the great service.

Welcom Silver!

Eman had the best suggestions for your pulled pork smoke.  Look in the pork section and follow the "sticky" at the top which explains it very well.  I take my pork butts to an internal temp between 200-205 with delicous results.

Dutch's wicked beans are the best in town.  Once you make them your friends and family will demand them everytime.

Good luck with all your smokes and don't hesitate to ask any questions.

I'vw had the same problem with beer can chicken using hickory for smoke. Apple wood is perfect for chicken you and the kids will love it.
