    Started cooking at 0900. Had problems getting the wood burning. Started with 3/4 full chimney of lump, then added 2 large pieces of oak. Next time I'll use smaller pieces.

    I have a new charcoal grate. I was losing too much charcoal through the grate

    Cooking with wood is damned hard. Really have to manage the fire. Being only my second smoke with just wood I must say I'm satisfied. Next time will be only with lump.

    The pork butt is still in the smoker, internal temp is 164F, smoker temp is 234F.

    Nice smoke ring on the ribs. 3-1-1 method give the best texture for me.

    The butt cooked to an internal temp of 205F. Let it rest for an hour and pulled. The internal temp was 195 when i pulled it. Overall it was a successful smoke. Very satisfied and it tasted good[​IMG]
