    That's fine Matt.

    Your little experiment tells all of us how to do it in a pinch too. Probably many of us have avoided making any at all,  because of the time. Now we know how to put one through quicker. You helped us all with this.

    Thanks,

    I have read elsewhere that meat only takes up smoke flavor for the first 3 hours or so. That would jive with your results. I also tend to cut down on feeding the fire wood chucks the further I get into the cooking process and add lump only toward the end of the cook.

    I tried this method of foiling and raising the smoker temp to 300º due to getting a late start one time. The only down side to such a shorter smoke.......I didn't get to drink as many beers. [​IMG]

    I read something like that too, but I think it might have been the "smoke ring". I think it keeps taking on smoke flavor, but maybe not as much as the first few hours.

    Thanks for proving me wrong. I will have to try this method if I can't find of make the time. Its kind of nice to have help with people who will try new things and let you know how it works. Looks great, good job.

     The idea was that once the meat reaches an internal temp of 140º, the pores on the meat shut up and no longer accept more smoke. However, the exterior of the meat still does thru out the smoke.

    Pros in comps do "hot and fast" all the time and often win.  Most use foil.

    Yup, that's what I had read too. I double checked what I had in my files. I have "After about 135˚ or 140˚, the smoke ring is through forming, but the meat will continue to take on smoke at or near the surface".

    Thanks Flash,

    I was worried 275˚ was a little high during the uncovered stage, but apparently I was wrong, because Matt said it was great.

    It's not the first time---I've been wrong before.

    Understand?

    Nice job, looks like the bone fell right out and the smoke ring is looking good. Looks like a way to keep the fridge full of smokey meat. [​IMG]

    There is always time to spend a half hour in prep time and let it sit over night.  My problem lately has been spending that 15 hours tending the smoker.   Saturday night was date night and my wifes birthday, so spending it smoking wasn't going to happen.  [​IMG]   That pork was great for lunch today and will be great for lunch tomorrow.

    I am working on that.  Still tweaking the big rig so I can leave it for hours and a new build coming up that will be better as well.

    Nope---Definitely not a safety thing, unless you stick your arm in there too long.

    Yesterday I took all the juices that were separating in the freezer/fridge and made up some finishing sauce.  After separating and straining a couple time, I put in some cider vinegar and a little lemon juice.  Poured it in a gallon zip loc that was half filled of PP and mixed it up.  Brought some to work today for a sandwich and with out anything else added to it.  I would have to say it was the best PP sammy I have ever had.  The one thing I am not happy with is, I only brought enough for big sandwich and I am still wanting more.
