New to smoking

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by brocksdad, Jun 21, 2015.

  1. My name is Mark and I live in Arizona about an hour Southeast of Phoenix. I recently bought a Brinkman Smoke'N Pit for my first smoker. Just getting around to using it today. This is something that I've always wanted to do and I'm glad I finally am. I have a pork butt on it right now and it smells pretty delicious. Only time will tell.

    You don't need a grill, just put it outside on the concrete....I spent 15 long years in Mesa...Welcome to the site...

    Welcome, glad ya joined us !
     
  5. Probably would have cooked faster on the concrete instead of the smoker today, was about 110* outside.
    I would have loved some cloud cover today.
    Thanks!

    Welcome to the site Mark and congratulations on your new smoker and smoking adventure.

    How did the butt turn out?
     
  7. It turned out good, I think. Took a couple hours longer than I anticipated. I don't think the temp gauge is accurate on the smoker and I was cooking at a lower temperature than I thought.

    Good to hear that it turned out good.  I figure 2 hours per pound on butts,  (Smoking @ 225* - 250*), and on some, that's not enough.
