    is that the gauge that on the smoker ? They can be off by 50 or more. (My gauge reads 150 but the smoker will be 225 to 250)

    A real good gauge is the MAVERICK ET-732 REMOTE SMOKER THERMOMETER.

    as far as the Butt make sure you take it to 200 to 205 IT. 

    by the way [​IMG] to SMF.

    First off welcome to SMF. You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course. It is free and it will also give you the basics on smoking. So with all that said now go and get something to smoke.
