Second smoke on the new WSM.

Royal Oak charcoal. Mesquite chunks. Blue bag briquettes to start.

Two 4 pound butts.. one with Beer-B-Qs rub, one with SPOG.

Turned the low vents pretty much off (about 20% open)  and the top open.





More later!!

Got to get some unpacking and house stuff done...

Hit 140 right at 3.5 hours...

Been kinda stalling for a while.

Now at 161..

I am having a good time,may not foil at 165.

Have had to shake the coals and add chunks a few times,seems to be holding 230 fairly steady.

Do you normally foil? When I started I always foiled and then I decided to experiment. The first butts I did without foiling were fantastic, we liked the bark SO much better.

Looks awesome Craig!  

I'd agree. I'm glad I didn't foil with my last butt. The bark was awesome. Really tasty and a great texture.

Yes sir, good ole vinegary sauce! I never foil anymore, not that its bad to, I just prefer a crusty bark. The contrast in textures is nice. I hope your having a good day and a good smoke session.
