Well I fired up the smoker at 7:30 AM this morning using Royal Oak. Got it stabilized at 225-250, and put the 4.5lb pork picnic which was sitting out the last hour after being treated with a good dry rub last night on the grate above the water pan. Along with a couple of chunks of the wild apple wood that I have had soaking since about midnight to the hot coals. That was at about 8:15. The 2 racks of baby backs shortly followed along with a half dozen turkey drums that have been brined for the past 10 hours. I have the pulled pork mopping sauce ready. I am really trying to put everything I have learned by reading the form and home page into action. I hope it all turns out as well as some of the other stuff I have read on here has. I will post results later tonight.
