I am smoking a pork butt this weekend for the OU/Texas game, and I want to throw in some hot links towad the end of the smoke. How long should I smoke the hot link.

I think I broke decorum when I made my first posting this morning without introducing myself. My name is Nick and I live in Oklahoma City. I have always enjoyed cooking out on the grill and am pretty good at it, but just started smoking. I am currently using an electric smoker (I know, not a purist) that I commandeered from my neighbor who wasn't using it. It is a Cookshack, and I pay him back by inviting him over for whatever Q that I make. I have already accessorized it, so there is a good chance he will never get it back!!! I have been pouring over this website for the last couple of weeks and have gathered alot of very useful info. So, thanks to Jeff and all of you guys for your useful info and suggestions. I look forward to your suggestions and experimenting a little myself. Hopefully someday, I will be able to contribute something that I have learned and pay you guys back.

Nick, Welcome to SMF. If your Cookshack runs at about 220-250 degrees, you should probably put them in the smoker about 90 minutes before you think that the butt will be done. After 45 minutes, flip them over. Check them with a ready-read thermomoeter and when they are at 160 degrees, they are good to go! If you wrap your butt in old towels and place it into a cooler for a couple of hours, put your links into the smoker when you take the butt out. That's my $.02, you mileage may vary! :D
