Saturday's 'Team DC' Pork Butt

(my first post went MIA for some reason)

Using tips from deifferent members on the forum, the pork butt is underway.

6 am I got the smoker started with charchoal, and a apple juice filled foil pan placed in the smoking chamber.

About 6:45am the shoulder went on with only a coat of OO and S&P.

From 7-9am, I had a temperature dillemma. The guage on the smoker was off 100 deg. compared to 5 other thermometers I had. Two bucks and a 3/8" drill bit later...VOILA, it was fixed.

I threw on a rack of spares to compare the different fuels. This is my first "Low & Slow" with solely briquettes.

so far so good, pics to follow.

How is it going Jeekinz? We are smoking butt at the same time. Man, I am anxious!

Are you finding it difficult getting the temerature up to the 225-250 range? I am struggling with it, so far my only solution has been feed tons of charcoal. I am almost though an 18 lb bag!


It will be fun to compare pictures :)

So here's what I started with. The butcher left another piece for the Mutt. (why was that in there anyway?)

Basically, this is what the SFB looked like ALL DAY. I went through one and a half 18lb. bags of briquettes. (should I rant now?....OK)

I kept a steady temp of 215-250 (250 tops) for 14 hours. The highest temp I achieved was 184 degrees in the shoulder. (see the remote probe in the pics)

So, in the dead of winter when you thought you were maintaining 225*, the actual temperature was 125* or there about?
