    Just started smoking meats, pork mostly. I have a brinkman bullet (R2D2). First smoke of baby backs were absolutely delightful! I'm gonna try some butt and ribs at the same time in the morn, any advice? Same time, or ribs a few hours into it? The dinner bell is ringing around 7pm.

Hello Danaconda and welcome to the fun.  Many good folk here with a load of experience that they are more than willing to share.  If you have specific questions just start a thread and someone with experience will be along soon to offer advice.  Spend some time doing some research on the forums, tons of advice and recipes already available there.  The trial and error method works well.  We will try to help you keep the errors to a minimum since we already made them for you.  We look forward to your contributions.  I would start those ribs a little later as that butt will probably stall on you.  Allow about 1-1/2 hrs per lb. for that butt and hope for the best.  It can take longer.  Have fun.  Good luck.  Keep Smokin!

    Ended up putting both in at the same time. I used the 321 method on the ribs and FTC them for a couple hours. Then put them back on once I let the butt rest for an hour. Both came out great with a good bark and a nice smoke ring. Also wanted to note, for those using the brinkman bullet, lump hardwood charcoal is awesome for maintaining a good 225-250• temp. This site rox, BTW!!!
