    Thanks...came out perfect in a out 5 1/2 hours... Smoked it with apple maple mix for 2 hours at a lower temp (125-140°F} then bumped the temp to 165 ish till it was dry but still nicely "bendable".
    Beef next...15l+.pounds (before processing) of top and bottom rounds.

    Thanks.
    Came out perfect (not to brag or anything..lol).
    About 5 1/2 hours total...
    I sliced it up a little thinner this year trying to cut my times back a bit and had great success.
    About two hours of light to moderate smoke with an apple cherry mix at 125°F (ish) then bumped to 160-170 ish till dried but nicely bendable.
    15+ pounds of beef top and bottom round up next.
