Better than expected cook!!!

  1. Smoked 7lb porkbutt & skin-on half breasts of chicken yesterday, also used for the first time my new Maverick et-733 meat thermometer! Didn't realize how much temp. fluctuations happen; before I'd just use the therm. on the smoker, check the int. temp of the meat & I'd add wood when there's a noticeable drop in temp. I felt more paranoid with the 733 due to all the temp changes, alarms, etc. Had to finish the chicken in the oven cause I wasn't able to get the int. temp past 160; my wife made the sides: beans, slaw, cornbread etc; my family were pleased esp. the pulled pork, even used my new bear claws to pull it with; all n all good cook! Thanks to you guys who gave advice on my other thread! Always welcome advice & new ideas!!!

  3. [​IMG]   Good evening and welcome from a nice warm day in East Texas and the best forum on the internet, Lots of great people with tons of information on just about  everything. Glad you joined up.

  4. Thanks JP61!!! Gonna try a brisket this time! The last one I tried didn't turnout too well. It was the first meat I had ever tried smoking. So maybe with some of the advice I've been given, the tips I've read and from my mistakes I'll smoke a half-way decent brisket!

    Take it easy!
